Some people recycle bottles and cans, others cardboard and paper but this year try something new and recycle your children’s Halloween Costume. The Green Halloween Costume Swap 2012 has begun and it’s a great way to save a few dollars and recycle last years Halloween costume by swapping for a “new to you” costume. If you are interested in the costume swap, see all the sponsors, details, and swap locations below. A couple locations are in South End (The Boulevard at South End and Atherton Market) so no excuse for not having a swap location nearby.
Have a Happy Green Halloween!
The following information is from Natural Luxe: Eco-Chic Boutique
Get your Halloween off to a “Green” start at Charlotte’s Green Halloween Costume Swap on Saturday, October 13th in South End and Saturday, October 20th in Blakeney. Don’t buy new this year – save some money and help green our community by swapping out your children’s gently used costumes.
Hosted by Natural Luxe and Baby Elan Daily, this is a great opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint. We will have goody bags filled with great discounts and offers from our sponsors for the 1st 50 swappers to arrive at each swap.
Green Fact from Use Less Stuff – If half the costumes kids wear each year were swapped, we could reduce the annual waste by 6,250 tons, equivalent to 2500 mid-size cars!
