Ghouls. Ghosts. Goblins. Halloween is fast approaching, and it is time to pull out those costumes and hand out candy to all of those little monsters. The orange of the pumpkins and candy corn and the black of the cats and the night sky are the colors that fill Halloween. Why not, however, try to add some green to the bone-chilling holiday? Adding some green to the holiday will spice things up and save some money. Here are some green ideas for the season that are quite simple and fun.
Make a homemade costume. Using your imagination is much more fun than going out and buying a regular costume. Find items in your house and improvise. Want to be a grape this Halloween? Just wear a green hat as the stem and a purple outfit, or if you want to be a bunch of grapes, attach purple or green balloons all over your body.
Use nature instead of plastic.
Decorate your home with pumpkins, squashes, flowers, hay bales and candles from soy instead of plastic decorations. All of the decorations can all be found at your local farmers market.
Walk, don't drive, with your trick-or-treaters. Many parents follow their kids in the car as they go trick-or-treating. Instead of driving around, be part of the experience and join your child in the fun. Save your gasoline and money, and limit your emissions.
Reuse, reduce, recycle. Reuse the decorations again next year. This way you reduce the amount of new decorations that you buy and you recycle the previous ones.
With these fun ideas and tips, you can add some green to your Halloween!
