Green Your Halloween: Trade Tired Duds

Green Your Halloween: Trade Tired Duds:

Kids trade halloween costumesIt's almost time for ghosts, witches, and zombies to roam the streets in search of treats. This week, we'll help you prepare to celebrate Halloween without making the state of the planet any scarier.

Tip #1: Organize a costume swap.

It's wasteful to wear a costume for one night and then toss it, so think about how to ressurect previous years' disguises. Accessories like wigs and hats can be reimagined to evoke a different character each year. But if your child is tired of that same old clown wig, swap it for a friend's gently used superhero cape. Check to see if your community holds a scheduled Costume Swap Day. If not, consider organizing one yourself.

Tell us: What are you going to be for Halloween?
