It happens every year in millions of American neighborhoods. Christmas trees are dismembered and abandoned on the street. Most are DOA. Some have viable phloem through which nutrients may still travel. But there is hope for these dears. For five dollars a day, the price you pay for a (labeled) cup of (high-calorie) coffee, you can support the return of this tree to its natural habitat. Instead of being hauled off to the dumpster, Curly Comedy Collectors will pick up a tree by hand and redistribute the needles into a nearby garden. Then the branches will be stacked into bundles and made into trendy hats.

Please. Don't let this opportunity to feel guilty pass you by.

The only thing I felt guilty about was that I had to look up 'phloem' to be sure it meant what I thought it meant.

It did, so once again, I'm guilt free. It's wonderful to be me.
