Taurus Crafts Charity Christmas Trees

Our Christmas have all been sourced within 15 miles of Taurus Crafts, as we want to support local foresters and keep the environmental impact as small as possible. Another step we have taken into consideration is customers concern about single-use plastic and the environment. We are proud to be using biodegradable netting for all of our Christmas trees this year, so the netting will degrade in a similar way to nature’s waste.

An additional benefit of purchasing one of our tress is that, as a charity that supports adults with learning and other disabilities, the proceeds of purchasing one of Christmas trees, will help us to continue the work we do and provide them with a safe space to develop and learn to lead a life of opportunity.

There will be range of Christmas Trees available from 4ft to 8ft and this will all be available from 30th November. If you require a specific size customers can call or email Taurus Crafts.
