With Halloween almost here and the holidays right around the corner, it can be easy to get caught up in excessive shopping. Here are some quick tips on how to keep your carbon footprint low this Halloween: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
🚲 If possible, walk or bike while trick or treating. ⠀
🎃 Turn your pumpkin guts into a snack by roasting your seeds with a sprinkle of salt. Be sure to compost any leftover scraps from carving.
🧙♀️ Going to a Halloween party? Try making your costume with clothing and supplies from around your house.
🧟♂️ If you absolutely have to buy a new costume, consider having a costume swap with your neighbors or donating your costume to prevent single use.
🍫 When it comes to handing out candy, opt for those treats in small cardboard boxes for the easiest recycling (think Nerds) or buy @rainforestalliance certified chocolate.
🍾 Decorations can be made with household items too! Make some spooky potion bottles with recycled containers, some paint, and a DIY label. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have a tip for staying sustainable during the holidays? Drop it in the comments below ☟
