SWEDISH FIRE TORCH
THE SWEDISH FIRE TORCH is handmade from 2019 Christmas Tree Trunks. In the beginning of January people put their Christmas trees on the street to let it pick up by the local street cleaning companies. We are talking about 30 Million trees only in Germany. Each of these trees needs about an average time of 10 years to grow until it is harvested to become a Christmas tree. The life of a Christmas tree is rediculously shorter: Fourteen days from being bought until thrown onto the street. We decided to give some of them another purpose, so we cut their trunks and made swedish fire torches out of them.
Because of the actual situation in Australia, we decided to donate 100% of the proceeds to organizations like WIRES or the RED CROSS AUSTRALIA to help fighting the bush fires.
