The cathedral enlisted the help of the local community to donate 500 bottles for the tree.
Look at this beautiful tree - could you believe it's made of all the plastic bottles you have been donating?! @jachapotgieter has well and truly worked his magic✨— Chester Cathedral (@ChesterCath) November 28, 2019

Potgieter said the project was a way to raise awareness of plastic pollution.
The tree is one of many trees displayed this Christmas for Chester Cathedral's annual Christmas Tree Festival, which for 2019 has been dubbed the Christmas Tree-cycled Festival.
