10 Tips For A Greener Halloween

28 October 2009

I saw this Happy Hallow-green article over on the kidsaroundcanada website, it made for a good read. It contains 10 tips about how to have a "greener" halloween, written by Lisa Borden.

I'll put a brief breakdown of Lisa's tips here, but you should read the article linked above for the full run-down.

Green Pumpkin1. Support your community, buy local pumpkins
2. Walk, don't drive, stick to the neighbourhood
3. Use a costume you already have, or borrow
4. Or make your own costume (no face paints)
5. Use old cans with candles for cheap lighting
6. Re-think the treats
7. Use a re-usable bag
8. Use a solar or kinetic flashlight
9. No phantom power (appliances in standby)
10. Reduce, reuse and recycle!

So with a little bit of thought this Halloween, you can be environmentally friendly too.
