6 Ways To Celebrate Halloween While Being Eco-conscious
It's that time of year where you and the kids get to let your inner ghost out and go hunting for yummy treasures, but Haloween doesn't have to be a strain on the environment, here's my 8 Ways to celebrate Halloween while being Eco-conscious and having heaps of fun.
Re-use that pumpkin!The options are endless, use the insides for soup (who doesn't love pumpkin soup). Roast the seeds for snacks or pop them in a salad. Don't forget to pop the empty skulls in the compost. The worms will love you for it and if you don't have a compost, ask a neighbour who does.
Try a sustainable costumeIn the US alone the costume industry has an income of over 2.5 billion and the worst part is most of those costumes end up in landfill. So what can we do to help this? Get a little creative, why not try a DIY costume this year? Or head to your local thrift store and put together a masterpiece or use an older siblings costume from a previous year.
Try using healthy low waste treats.It wouldn't be Halloween without a few treats but there are a few easy ways to limit waste, you could make some yummy low sugar gummies that the kids will just love, you can find a recipe here. Or try hunting around for foil candy wrappers which are recyclable or better yet see if you can find some wrappers which are bio-degradable. Homemade snacks are always a winner and homemade doesn't have to mean slaving in the kitchen all day.
