Interesting Fact - Christmas Fact - Christmas Trees

In Germany discarded Christmas trees are donated to zoos for the animals to eat.

(Thousands of trees, that weren't sold during the lead up to Christmas, are fed to elephants, camels, polar bears and a variety of other animals. But it's no good trying to donate your tinsel bedecked tree, the trees have to be free of any chemical treatment, and so only certain vendors of Bio trees are eligible.)
