These plastic pumpkins at WalMart are only $1 to tempt customers to buy them.
This month’s nominee for stupid plastic crap is easy. It’s the beginning of the holiday season when we will see all kinds of plasticky, crappy decorations. One of the most familiar is the plastic trick or treat pumpkin. Factories have been chugging them out for years. It takes energy and resources to make them, gas to transport them (probably oversees), and they are used only once a year. Many end up in land fills and will take many decades, even centuries, to degrade.
I know that Halloween is a fun holiday for kids and adults and you probably think I am being a grouch for complaining about plastic pumpkins. Really it is super easy to use something else that is environmentally friendly. Make a bag out of fun Halloween fabric. Bags are really easy to make but if you are not a seamstress and need instructions, visit this entry to my blog .
