Business Idea for Green Catholics

Dec 19, 2009 Published under Entrepreneurship and Management, Environment

This season many millions of pine trees are being chopped off to decorate Christmas living rooms.  With growing awareness about the harm of reducing the footprint of trees in our globe, this tradition (which I assume does not have any grounding in biblical or canonical precepts of Christian religion) must be getting questions more and more. 

One answer for environmentally-conscious Christians may be to just pass up the tree altogether – or to use an artificial Xmas tree.

But what if a company were to offer to go further: that for a fraction of the cost of buying such a tree, it would actually plant a new tree in the honor of the family foregoing the actual tree.

Or a company in business of making the artificial trees could sell a version that included this environmentally-conscious commitment – not only would buyers forego killing trees, but the company would actually pay to plant X number of new trees…

Leave it to a Mexican Jew to think this up… :-)
