National Halloween Costume Swap Day How to for a Green Frugal Family Holiday Celebration With Kids

Eco Friendly Celebrations

Halloween is still 3+ weeks away, but it's not too early to start planning and assembling kid costumes -- whether store bought or DIY homemade. Besides, it's never too early to talk about how to make the festivities more eco responsible, too. This year there's just the thing to make it happen: an event organized by Green Halloween® called National Costume Swap Day TM that takes place across the U.S. on Saturday, October 8th.

Essentially, this is a costume swap that can involve just some of your neighbors, the kids at school or a small group of friends or it can be a large citywide community event. However you do it, you'll be making a community difference and saving resources and money.

Green Halloween explains, "Costume swaps not only mean less resources are used to make new product, it also means less packaging, less transportation of the product and less waste from products being trashed as they sadly often are!"

Here's the how tos to participate in this green, eco friendly event this weekend.

  1. I love the idea of costume swapping! I always make something handmade, and plan to hang on to things for dress-up, but for those who don't want to make their own, this idea is perfect.
