IKEA TO DISTRIBUTE FREE SAPLINGS

 PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In addition to offering Christmas trees for the low price of $10 last December, the IKEA store in Houston also provided their environmentally conscious customers with an opportunity to do their part for waste reduction. Now, IKEA goes one step further and encourages reforestation.
 IKEA "rented" beautiful, healthy Douglas Fir trees for $20 - a $10 deposit plus a $10 rental fee. After the holidays, nearly two-thirds of the customers returned their IKEA Christmas trees to be mulched, instead of the trees being disposed of in landfills. If desired, the mulch was available to be taken home -- perfect for use in the garden or compost heap. Their $10 deposit was refunded, and they were presented with a coupon for a free sapling.
 From Wednesday, April 21 through Sunday, April 25, customers can redeem these coupons at IKEA on the Katy Freeway for a Blue Spruce sapling to replace the tree which was cut down last Christmas.
 The IKEA Rent-A-Tree Program is a great way to save money and the environment.
