Make it a #GREEN #Halloween! National Costume Swap Day is October 8!

This year we got LA’s first costume from a review I did of Costumer Discounters. Next year, we will be either re-using this costume for the new baby (if it will fit, but I am doubting it will) or we will be participating in National Costume Swap Day!

Have you ever stopped to think about how many costumes are bought just for a ONE time use? Most of them eventually end up in the landfill and then you have the packaging too, which ends up in the landfill. Did you know that swapping just half of the costumes that kids wear will reduce annual landfill waste by 6,250 tons? That is equal to the weight of 2500 midsize cars! I never realized it was THAT much!

You can click here to find a swap near you or you can organize and register your own swap here. You really should think about organizing your own costume swap event! It can be a great way to get together with neighbors, family and friends to kick off the Halloween season! And while you are at it, you might as well make it into a party and have some yummy treats and games for the kids!

Besides checking out Costume Swap Day, what do you do to make Halloween GREEN? 🙂
