5 Smart Tips for an Eco Friendly Halloween

Halloween is a fantastic time of the year for both kids and adults, but with all those decorations, the costumes, candy and more, it can also mean a lot of waste. With just a little bit of planning, you can make Halloween a little more green with these eco-friendly tips.

1. Get Creative With Your Decorations

When it comes to incorporating eco friendly tips into Halloween, you may just find that it makes things even more fun! You don’t need to buy plastic decorations from the store: take advantage of what nature has to offer and decorate your home with leaves, pumpkins, apples and natural candles. Don’t forget to choose reusable plates and cutlery instead of disposable items if you really want to do the best you can for the environment.

2. Choose Your Halloween Candy Wisely

By choosing your Halloween candy wisely, you’ll be helping to protect your kids’ health as well as the environment. Take a trip to your local health food store to see what’s on offer. Opt for organic candy that aren’t full of artificial ingredients, as well as fair trade chocolate or even homemade baked treats.

3. Recycle Your Halloween Costumes

Eco friendly tips almost always revolve around reusing or recycling so you don’t have to buy new, and Halloween is no different. By making your own costumes from old costumes or reusing costumes you’ve bought in previous years, you’ll be doing your bit to reduce waste this Halloween.

Try making your costumes out of old clothes that would have otherwise been thrown away, or buy second hand clothing at low prices to use for fabric.

4. Reusable Halloween Bags

We all need bags to carry around our Halloween treats, but they needn’t be bad for the environment. Instead of plastic or paper bags, get your hands on some reusable trick or treat bags that can be recycled for many years to come.

Canvas bags are an excellent choice – take a look around stores to see if you can find any Halloween-themed bags, or simply decorate a plain canvas bag yourself.

5. After Halloween Is Over

Out of all the eco friendly tips, what you do with everything after the event really does matter. Don’t just throw away pumpkins, use them for compost, and try to keep any decorations you bought so they can be used again next year. If you did end up buying a costume and won’t wear it again, give it to a friend or donate it.
