Treecycle Mulchfest 2011

You may be eyeing your tree and starting to think about how much longer it will last this year.  Maybe you’ve fallen in love with it, and wish it could last a little longer.  Don’t despair! There are many ways to extend the life of your tree for months to come.  A great article in the NY Times shared ways to make tea and Spruce Butter.  When you’ve used your tree as much as you can, don’t forget to take it to Mulchfest 2011, held all around the city on Jan.8.

Do you have other items that need to be recycled after an exciting holiday? There is an extremely useful program available via the Treehugger Mobile App.  If you have a GPS-able smartphone, add the free Treehugger app.  You’ll see a symbol for recycling.  Once you choose the items you want to recycle (including many things not recyclable by the city) you’ll see the closest location to take your items.  For example, if you have #6 plastics (polystyrene) that tend to pile up over the holidays, you can take them to some participating Mailboxes, Etc.!
