Have you ever thought about trimming a Christmas tree for breast cancer awareness? October is breast cancer awareness month, and it’s the perfect time to show your support for those that struggle with this disease. Over the years, I’ve worn pink, purchased products which were donating a portion of their proceeds and shared messages on my blog and social media. Thank you to Tree Classics for sponsoring this conversation today.

Trim a Christmas Tree for Breast Cancer Awareness

We’ve always had an artificial tree for as long as I can remember. I prefer to leave the real trees outside for the animals and birds to enjoy. With an artificial tree, there is no need to water it or sweep up pine needles from the floor. For me, it’s just an easier choice than a real tree.

After visiting the Tree Classics site, I learned that their trees use Real Feel™ technology that results in foliage that feels as real as it looks. Made from injection-molded polyethylene (PE) plastic, Real Feel™ needles allow you to enjoy all of the advantages of an artificial Christmas tree without sacrificing the beauty of a real one. Their trees are designed with a mix of Real Feel™ foliage and traditional papery PVC needles for optimal realism and fullness.

After looking at several different styles, we chose a pre-lit Christmas tree, so we didn’t have the hassle of dealing with strings of lights individually. We decided to get a Kennedy Fir Slim Artificial Christmas Tree because it was compact enough to fit in the area we had available. If you have a larger area, you can choose from their full Christmas trees as well. You can also decide to have a tree with no lights if you prefer.

This year, Tree Classics is partnering with 30 bloggers to share a message encouraging people to support Breast Cancer Awareness by trimming their tree in pink.

  1. What a treat to learn about these trees since I had not seen them before. I learned they have an up-to-date blog and newsletter I can subscribe to and learn about them. So many don't bother to update their site info, so I appreciate it. We had the same silver metallic artificial tree for most of the 60s, lol. Those color wheels were popular then and I loved to watch it change colors. I don't have a tree now and like you, hate cutting down the real ones!
  2. They have beautiful real looking trees.
  3. Rachelhasdragons says
    I learned that there are trees that feel more like real trees and there are flat backed trees. That is so cool because we dont have alot of space in our living room. I will still have to look up some stuff on google though because my cats chew on the trees we get and last i looked all fake trees are unsafe for them to chew on. Which sucks because those flat backed trees would be awesome, plus fake trees are easier to put on in the stand. At least the giftcard would buy some beatutiful ornaments if i need to get a real tree for my kitties health :) great giveaway
