Recycle your holiday tree while also helping homeless teens

As this year’s holiday season comes to a close, New Yorkers will be able to start off the new year by doing two good deeds in one fell swoop. Christmas Tree Brooklyn , which sells its trees online and in-person throughout New York City, offers its customers a chance to simultaneously donate items to the Covenant House , an organization benefiting runaway youth. Before the holidays, the used goods are collected when Christmas trees are delivered to people’s homes, but there’s still an opportunity to give back now. When the company is hired to remove used trees, it will once again accept donated goods, including clothing, toys, canned foods, and gifts, and deliver them to the Covenant House. And those Christmas trees that brought so much festivity into our homes? They will be recycled and used to revitalize green spaces around the city.
