Green Your Halloween!
As all you ghouls and goblins gear up for Halloween, don’t forget to keep it green! While your costume should be scary, your energy consumption should not. Conserve energy and save money with these few simple steps:
Costumes:Reuse an old costume, borrow from a friend, shop at vintage or resale stores, or make something yourself. Dress green by going as Mother Nature, Al Gore, a Farmer, a Hippie, or PETA.
Trick-or-Treating: GIve out healthier treats like organic candy or honey sticks. Use things you already own to collect candy like pillow cases, purses, lunch-boxes, etc.
Decorations: If hosting a party, avoid disposables like napkins, cups, plates, and other decor.
After Halloween: Compost pumpkins and other food, including candy! Use old costumes, decorations, or candy wrappers for decoupage craft projects like frames, purses, and more! (see here)
