The "uberization" of our society continues to grow. This holiday season, when around six million Christmas trees will be sold, the American platform Uber Eats is getting into the delivery of conifers.
The home delivery giant is teaming up with Monceau Fleurs to deliver "for the very first time this famous Christmas tree [... ] from December 1 to 17 inclusive for all Parisians, from 13 p.m. to 20 p.m. from Monday to Friday and on weekends from 12 p.m. to 20 p.m.," the company said in a statement. A 45-minute delivery is also promised by the brand.

As you can see, this new offer is only aimed at the inhabitants of the capital, partly those who cannot or do not want to transport the conifer to their homes, avoiding for example having to transport it in the metro.
Two Nordmanns at €50 and €60
Uber Eats offers two traditional Christmas trees that have "dark green, shiny foliage, a regular shape, and very few needles." A Nordmann 125 x 150 cm for €49.99 and another Nordmann for €150.175 and another Nordmann for €59.99, with free shipping.
Uber Eats offers two Christmas trees for home delivery.
Among natural Christmas trees, the Nordmann remains the favorite of the French since it represents 77.9% of the market share, says the French Association of Natural Christmas Trees (AFSNN).
The press release wishes to specify that Monceau fleurs offers fir trees "grown in France and Belgium with producers carefully selected for their know-how and their commitment to the protection of forests." Indeed, the Monceau flower trees labelled by the MPS or "Plante Bleue" label, two labels guarantee that horticulturists are committed to the protection of the environment.
