Halloween – Think Green

Make Your Own Costumes!

Halloween! ¬†Yes, it’s that time of the year to start thinking about costumes for your children or yourself! Have fun with the family and MAKE YOUR OWN COSTUMES!

Why purchase costumes that you will probably only use once and then throw away? Instead, use old clothes or buy used clothes from a consignment shop to make your costume.

Make the most of your jack o’ lantern. Use the removed meat to make pumpkin pie or muffins and roast the seeds as a fun holiday snack. When the holiday is over, cut up your carved pumpkin before it spoils and toss it in the compost bin.

Consider donating old costumes to local amateur theater productions, including school performances and shows put on by charitable organizations. Another option is to donate costumes to a costume rental service or to a local thrift store.
