School’s barely gotten started, and I’m talking about Halloween? Well, yes. But not because I want you to run out this weekend to start stocking up on costumes, face paint, decorations, and the like. In fact, it’s because I want you to do the opposite.
I’m talking about National Costume Swap Day , a country-wide event encouraging local kids and families to trade Halloween get-ups instead of buying new ones to reduce waste. An effort we’re promoting with our friends at Green Halloween , National Costume Swap Day takes place on Saturday, October 9th. Parents in Illinois, New Jersey, Florida, and Oregon (to name a few) have already started events in their communitiesbut to make a real eco-impact, we need your help! Find a National Costume Swap event near you, or learn how to organize, promote, and run your own at greenhalloween.org/costumeswap .
