Christmas Tree Decoration

recycled circuit board star

3.00 inc. VAT

Decorate your Christmas tree with these funky and good looking hanging decorations made from recycled circuit boards. The metal bits will catch the light, and they'll look great on your tree, under all your (low energy) lights.

Have a very eco friendly Christmas, without compromising on a thing! (They even come with their own string to hang them with.)

Most printed circuit boards are produced in large volumes by electronics manufacturers and ultimately become either obsolete or fail stringent control checks, after which they are incinerated or dumped into landfill sites. It is these circuit boards that are rescued and used to make these unique products. Otherwise they would have ended up in the bin. They're much happier now.

What do they look like?
The recycled circuit boards have a flat finish and have never had components attached to them with any type of solder or glue. Consequently, the heavy metals associated with electronic equipment are not present. Around 95% of them are green, but occasionally they may be gold, red and (most rarely), blue.

Some boards are single sided with a brown back and green front and others are green both sides.

How are they made?
Each of the recycled circuit boards is cut into shapes by a very clever shape cutting machine, and is hand finished to create the final product. This is to ensure no sharp edges are left.

Dimensions: 70 x 50mm (approx.)

  An ethical twinkle for the tree.  I loved this Christmas decoration although I was surprised how small it was. Lots of these would look fantastic on the tree and you can't complain about the colour scheme!    Mairi Rivers -

  Excellent!  These are brilliant - they look really good and it's a great idea for getting rid of circuit boards!    Emily, Southampton -
