Make it a “Green Halloween”

Published September 28, 2021

Halloween can be an extremely wasteful holiday. Luckily, planning for a “Green Halloween” is very easy! Please take a few extra measures to ensure that your decorations, festivities, and costumes are eco-friendly.

Tips for a spooky, but, sustainable Halloween:

  • Purchase locally grown pumpkins and compost them afterwards
  • Reuse decorations and/or purchase items that are meant to last
  • Opt for minimal candy packaging & paper wrapped sweets
  • Trick or treat with reusable bags or containers
  • Make your own costumes, thrift, or swap with friends
  • Donate costumes to your local thrift store
  • Provide reusable cups, plates, and utensils at your Halloween party
