Albay Guv Al Francis Bichara explains idea behind recycled Xmas tree


This Christmas tree at the Albay Provincial Capitol is a creative decoration and policy statement in one.

That’s because it’s not your usual Christmas tree–as Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara bares on this Facebook post, it was fashioned out of old rubber tires.

“The province can spend on expensive decorations and then forget the purpose why we celebrate Christmas,” the politiko noted.

“I, as your governor, encourages my fellow Albayanos to use, reuse, and recycle and make use of local products in decorating for the Christmas season,” Bichara said.
