Think Green This Halloween!Written by Shira Silberg
If you are still scrambling for a costume for this weekend think about how you can make your Halloween fashions more eco-friendly! 1) Store bought costumes are boring and wasteful - make your own! - Costumes from a store are often made of plastic and you probably only wear them once! Dig deep in your closet to see what you can make on your own. 2) Use the stuff you've already got - I'm sure you have tons of stuff in your house that can be made into a really cool Halloween costume. Got wrapping paper? Dress up as a present! Got tin foil? It's great for a knight in shining armor. Got an old sheet and scissors? Dress up as a ghost. 3) Trade with your friends - sick of the silly things you own? Trade your most outrageous costumes with friends. That way no one has to wear the same thing twice AND no one has to buy new costumes. 4) Give Out Green Candy - if you are giving out candy this year, choose something environmentally friendly. Check out NaturalCandyStore.com for some great ideas like these Organic Dark Chocolate Bites. For more tips on how to make this Halloween environmentally friendly, visit GreenHalloween.com. Have fun thinking green this Halloween!
