Green Your Halloween: (After)Life of the Party

Halloween party On Oct. 31, we hope you'll be out roaming the parties, the pumpkin patches, and the haunted houses, all the while munching on (or handing out) plenty o’candy. It can all leave a frightful mess — but it doesn’t have to. This week’s tips will help you ensure that Nov. 1 isn’t a scarier day for the Earth than the one that preceded it.

Tip #3: Celebrate Sustainably

If you’re attending a party or headed to a theme park or a haunted house to celebrate the spookiest of holidays, gather your ghoulish friends to carpool there. If you’re the host, use paperless invites, think through your decorations, and choose organic, locally grown pumpkins.

Tell us: How will you green your Halloween celebration?
