For a sixth year, Green Mountain is working with Sundance Square in Ft. Worth, Texas to ensure its holiday tree is as green as possible. We were there this week to watch its arrival and witness Mayor Betsy Price hoisting it into place on the Square’s central plaza!
Green Mountain is helping reduce the carbon footprint of the tree by offsetting the emissions incurred on its travel from Everett, Michigan to Texas and providing 100 percent renewable energy to power its 6,000 LED lights that twinkle throughout the holiday season.
Following its time in the Plaza, the tree will continue on its sustainable path and be recycled into mulch which provides nutrients to help grow other trees and flowers. Through these efforts, Sundance Square is avoiding 744 pounds of carbon dioxide, which is like 5 trips from Fort Worth, Texas, to the North Pole!
On Saturday, November 22, Sundance Square invites the community to join them as they light the tree, featuring an afternoon of fun-filled activities a special appearance from Santa Claus to kick off the holiday season. To learn more about the event, visit the Sundance Square website.
