Rent a tree for the holidays.

Angela Kim Dec 14, 2010

Instead of buying a tree that’s been freshly cut or buying an artificial tree, try looking for alternatives in your community. For example, in California you can rent a tree at Living Trees. When you’re done with the tree, you give it back and it keeps on growing. The best part, you can try to get the same exact tree the following year!

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
