With Chrismas season here, many people around the world are debating whether to cut or not to cut down a live Christmas tree or whether to use a real or plastic Christmas tree. Well, a departmental chainstore in Malaysia has come up with an eco-friendly idea for a Christmas tree.
AEON Co. (M) Bhd recently unveiled their 15m (50ft) tall Christmas Tree on December 7th, 2009 during a special tree-lighting ceremony at the AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre in Klang.
This tree is constructed from recycled plastic bottles collected from customers during the recent Recycling Bottles Campaign that was conducted in September. AEON collected 15,000 plastic bottles in the process. Encouraged by the success, AEON decided to continue the its eco-friendly campaign by celebrating a Green Christmas for 2009.
This unique tree will be competing for a spot in the Malaysian Book of Records.
