Nix Your Knick Knacks

How to Overcome the Need for Goodie Bags I know how important it is to you that you throw a party that everyone remembers. You want your guests to go home with happy hearts, satisfied stomachs and full hands. Of course you do! You care about the people you love – as you should! However, sending your guests home with goodie bags often does more harm than it does good. I don’t know about you, but I’ve somehow compiled a drawer full of knick knacks I’ve used maybe once and refuse to throw away. Or, they go straight to the

How to Combat Holiday Waste

Picture this with me for a moment… It’s Christmas afternoon… Gifts have been opened. Wrapping paper fills extra large trash bags. Tissue paper lies crumpled and strewn about. Gift bags have been ripped open. Wrapping supplies you picked up about a month ago have been torn through in a matter of minutes. The reality is that the holidays, despite their unwavering joy, produce a ton of waste, tons actually. So the question is… Is It Worth It? It’s no secret that humans as a whole are wasteful. When it comes to the holiday season, we often look for wrapping supplies

Christmas (Summer) Vacation

Our business booms in the winter months. We have the pleasure of bringing you a living tree that breathes life into your home during the holidays. And we love it! But, when the season ends, many of you opt to not keep your tree, and in turn donate it to OKC Beautiful, never to be seen again. Okay, it’s not quite that dramatic! I’ve told you about how Social Greenery trees give back to the environment in and out of your home, but, I know you might be wondering what your tree is actually doing over the summer. How is

Have Yourself a Green Christmas

With Arbor day now come and gone, we’ve been reflecting on trees. Social Greenery will always be about celebrating sustainably, and eco-friendly Christmas trees are a core part of how we do that. Family values are the roots are business grows from, but sustainability is the trunk that stretches us higher. So, what is the actual impact of trees on our environment? It all comes down to the sequestering of carbon dioxide. The exact amount of carbon stored by a tree depends on the variety of tree, maturity, size and location. For example, mature trees capture about 88 lbs of

Living Christmas Tree Partner Spotlight – OKC Beautiful

Each year we are proud to rent living Christmas trees to families in businesses in Oklahoma City, and this year is no different. Despite the added challenges of Social Greenery changing ownership mid season, we were still able to rent 210 sustainable Christmas trees. Of those, over 120 were donated to local nonprofits (the others kept by their Christmas families or part of our Grow With Me Tree program), primarily our environmental beautification partner, OKC Beautiful. The real wonder is that OKC Beautiful is then able to find appropriate placement for all these trees to be planted for their decades-long

Origin Story: Sam Walker, GTP and Social Greenery

By Sam Walker Green Tree Project hit us like a meteor in December of 2016. It started that fall when one of our children moved in with us. You see, we were a therapeutic foster home, so we specialized in providing care for children who had special needs. One of our little boys came to us after having been through half a dozen other foster homes in only seven months at the age of four. He was a sad, spiritless kiddo. And he was angry. We were using our therapeutic training to help him, but we also decided that an
