Green Your Halloween: Decorations

Green Halloween decorations With all the ghouls and goblins that come out for Halloween, the scariest thing by far is still the looming threat of an unsustainable world. This week’s tips are about how to slay your eco-demons on All Hallows’ Eve.

Tip #4: Rethink Your Décor
Everyone loves decorations, so we don’t always realize how they can cause waste. To get spooky but stay green, reuse last year’s cobwebs, spiders, and lanterns (or if you have to shop, buy only what you can reuse over many years to come). Unplug lights as soon as you’re done with them, and opt for LEDs. Otherwise, you might end up haunted by some truly energy-sucking vampires.
