Halloween Costume Swap Day is Saturday!

Posted Sep 28 2010 5:29pm

Halloween costumes What's your child going to be for Halloween this year? A spider monkey? A pink wabbit? Maybe Hannah Montana ? Or a lion!

Before you buy him or her yet another polyester outfit that’s doomed for the trash after a single use, consider swapping for it instead. If just half the 25 million children who celebrate Halloween in the U.S. exchanged costumes, they’d reduce landfill waste by 6,250 tons — that’s the weight of 2,500 midsized cars!

Three environmentally conscious organizations — Green Halloween , KIWI magazine , and Swap.com — teamed up to spread the word about the first annual swap day on Oct. 9 (that's a Saturday). To participate, find out if your community already has a swap planned . If not, organize one yourself !

After that, check out how to make your Halloween even greener .
