Don't you dare to dust away those cobwebs - Halloween is almost here! At the end of the month it's time for trick-or-treating, scary costumes and sweets, lots and lots of sweets. A big business in America, this 'holiday' is catching on over here in England too but unfortunately can be one of the most wasteful times of the year. Just thinking about all those individually wrapped sweeties that get given out and the plastic decorations bought at the local pound shop only to be thrown out afterwards makes us feel bad. That said, we're not saying you shouldn't enjoy the festivities, so here are some tricks to have a greener Halloween.
Make decorations or buy second-hand
Remember when you used to make Christmas decorations? Why not invest in some recycled paper and cardboard and make your own ghoulish ghosts – and make sure you keep them safe for next year! Alternatively head down to your local charity shop to see if they have any demonic decorations for sale. This way you can help the charity and return it there after Halloween if you don’t want to keep the decorations around for next year.
