Discarded Christmas

DiscardedXmas-11

It’s the end of January in Chicago, and people are still taking Christmas to the trash. As you walk by back alleys all you can see is discarded christmas trees still waiting for someone to deal with them. The city did have a recycling program, but I guess people are too lazy to purchase a tree with the responsibility of knowing they have to thoughtfully dispose of it. It made me a little mad, and a whole lot sad seeing all those lovely greens tossed away.

    Here in Brazil we use plastic Christmas trees, justly to use in the next year. I think that you, american people, could do that too…a way to end it. It’s just an idea. :)

    I’ve seen this types of scenes in London and Rome! Very distressing to see all these abandoned images of ex-prized Christmas trees. At least we are moving on, and it is the first sign moving away from Winter.

    If you are looking for some creative, Italian escapism, have a little look at my blog!
