KINGSEY FALLS, QC, Nov. 11, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Cascades is launching
the Massimo Christmas tree, made of 100% recycled cardboard. The tree is 6 feet tall which makes
it very similar to the traditional tree. It is easy to assemble, can be
stored flat and reused for many years. The main advantage: it is
maintenance-free! The Christmas tree can even be recycled at the end of
its life, unlike artificial trees. This new model rounds out the range
of three Cascades trees which were very popular among our customers in
"We wish to pursue our mission of raising awareness among consumers, to
convince them to adopt lifestyle and purchasing habits that are
responsible, even during the holiday season, a period that is conducive
to over-consumption", stated Carl Blanchet, Corporate Director,
A Modern Tree With a Traditional Style
Two large tree models are available. The first one is printed with a
design of tree branches, comparable to the natural tree. The second
one, the Christmas tree of yesteryear, is made with white cardboard and
is printed in a variety of green designs inspired by the tradition of
the holiday season.
Lit Up and Fragrant
A set of LED lights is included with each tree for a festive atmosphere.
Moreover, a bottle of fir tree mist, composed of 90% organic
ingredients, rounds out the range of accessories that are provided.
This will enable the fragrance of a freshly cut tree that is so much
desired by natural tree enthusiasts, whenever they choose and according
to the desired intensity. Finally, the cardboard lights and stars
inserted in the box are decorations.
Cascades is also launching a new 100% recycled fibre wrapping paper. It is one of the only industrial wrapping papers made in Canada! The
paper is printed using water-based flexographic inks and is recyclable.
In order to make this product greener, the paper is rolled without
using a cardboard core
