It's Easy Being Green This Halloween

It seems as if the hardest times of year to be eco-friendly are around the holidays. With a little planning ahead, however, it can be easy to stay green this Halloween! Here are a few tips for keeping it eco.

PLAN AHEAD

The easiest and quickest way to forget about the impact of your decisions during holiday celebrations is to make them on the fly. With enough planning ahead, you'll have time to shop around and make the best purchases possible, and with less stress, too!

GO THRIFTING FOR COSTUMES

If you do one thing right this Halloween, make it skipping the pre-packaged store-bought costume. This goes hand in hand with planning ahead - you won't be able to just run out and grab something last minute with this approach. With second hand, you never know what you'll find, so it can be fun to go shopping without any costume ideas and see what inspires you! Even if you have a costume in mind, with enough time, you're sure to find what you need - and find it low cost and low impact!

MAKE YOUR OWN COSTUME

You can also try out making your own costume to save money and create less waste. Junk mail can become paper mâché for masks, your own clothes can be styled to look like your favorite pop star, and even an old bed sheet can become the classic ghost costume in a pinch.

ROAST PUMPKIN SEEDS

If you're going to carve pumpkins this October, a fun way to reduce waste is to eat your pumpkin's guts. Well, not actually all the guts, but the seeds are a crispy and delicious treat once roasted. You can even season them with salt, garlic powder, chili powder, or whatever spice combination you fancy!

HOST A BLACK-OUT PARTY

It may seem odd, but one thing I miss about living on the East Coast is the fun that comes from a black-out caused by a rain or snow storm. There’s something about being stuck in a house or apartment with family or friends that is delightfully bonding! With no electricity, no lights, no distractions, you can break down the walls of technology that keep you from sharing moments instead of statuses. For your black-out party, stock up on matches, candles, flashlights, and blankets. Have your guests bring snacks, games and scary stories. Maybe even supplies for a furniture fort! Gather together to light up the living room with natural candlelight and tell ghost stories, play slumber party games, cuddle up and hang out! No need for an itinerary - once the lights go down, the fun is sure to turn up!
