tree has played a big part in Festive celebrations all across
the UK. Now in 2009, 169 years later on, Displaysense
plan to put used and unwanted Christmas trees to further use,
rather than filling up the countries landfill sites.
one of the UK's leading suppliers of display
cabinets and shop fittings, is asking for people all over

put through their hired Excelsior Machine to produce curly wood

company, which trialed popcorn packaging in the first quarter
of 2008 with some of their display
stands, are certain that this form of unique packaging will
not only help in preventing damage to products during transit,
but will also welcome the customer with a pine fresh scent when
opened and will revive memories of previous Christmases.

recycling unwanted Christmas trees makes for an ideal and cost
effective alternative to traditional packaging methods".

off at our head office and this wood shaving machine will be hired
to process the trees".
plan to run this concept packaging idea throughout January. However
the time scale of this project is highly dependent on the amount
of trees received and the feedback left by customers. The customers
that do receive the Christmas tree packaging will also receive
a fact sheet showing them how they can continue to be environmentally
friendly by adding the curly wood shavings to a compost heap or
mulch in their garden.

the range of high stock items, including a range of clothes
rail and even large products such as display
cases. Whatever products customers are looking to purchase
in 2009, Displaysense hope that a hint of Christmas magic will
continue on well into the New Year.
