— -- You probably never thought of your Christmas tree as sexy.

However, a French company, "Do You Green," is taking the wood and pine needles from your tree and giving them second life as fabrics for lingerie.

The brand is spearheaded by designer Sophie Young and is turning trees into nighties, bras and underwear through a non-chemical process.

Instead, the wood goes through an enzyme bath that turns it into a silky smooth fabric. The dyes used are certified with the Oekotex Standard 100 label, which guarantees the safety against risk of allergy or irritation, according to the company's website.

The website claims the line has sweat-reducing properties that naturally absorb two-and-a-half times more moisture than cotton.

The fashions are made from raw materials that could have alternatively been sent to the dump.

According to the National Christmas Tree Association, as many as to 30 million "real" Christmas trees are sold in the U.S. every year, with 4,000 recycling programs throughout the nation.

Of course, there's also a less sexy way to dispose of the trees besides a landfill. This year, a new program called "Goat Grazers" has 40 goats eating and otherwise recycling used Christmas trees. The program was started by Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District to keep trees out of California landfills -- where they become fire hazards.
