Here are some tips that Brochesia suggests to have the Halloween party in a green way, having fun, but always respecting the environment.
Follow these 5 rules!
Pumpkins and decorations for Halloween
Instead of buying material to create decorations, try to collect material in the years. Otherwise reuse your previous year’s decorations. For the pumpkins, buy them from local farms or from farmers’ markets. Or cultivate yourself!
Costumes and accessories
Keep old clothes that can be used as good pieces or parts of costumes, such as t-shirts, trousers consumed over time. As for bags trick or treat uses and decorates household items to collect candy. A bucket, pillowcase or old bag can be cheaply decorated at home – and reused year after year.
Party for Halloween
When you have a party, reduce waste by avoiding disposable plastic cups, plates and cutlery. Use regular dishes or buy biodegradable ones, try to use less and less plastic.
Sweets for Halloween
Buy locally-produced foods, candies and sweets. Look for products that are not too packed and / or packed in recycled materials.
Don’t take the car
For the trick or treat walk around your neighborhood instead of taking the car and driving to another destination. Try to get to know your neighbors and reduce your carbon emissions and help protect the environment.
