Ealing Sustainable Christmas Tree 2013/2015

Client: Ealing Borough Council

Ashley Phillips, the Creative Director at Glartique Ltd was commissioned by Ealing Council in London to design and create a 6m high sustainable Christmas tree to help highlight, support and inspire people to reuse and recycle plastic in the Borough.

The steel sub frame was laser cut and fabricated by master welders to make efficient use of height and width and allow 900 reused plastic water bottles to be securely attached to the structure. LED Neon flex was chosen to be the only means of lighting the tree, based on its vibrant and glowing light and its excellent flexible and weatherproof properties. The
installation has a continuous 50m length of green neon flex attached to the inside of the
structure connected to the 23 steel rings going up to in a giant spiral. This gave the surface of the installation bottles a stunning green light that could be seen from several hundred meters away.
