The spookiest season of the year can be an eco-nightmare.

But it’s easy, more fun and a little more scare-some to make your night planet-friendly.

Every year, millions of pounds of chocolate and sweet wrappers, plastic pumpkin buckets, and rubber masks end up in our landfills. In addition to the environmental damage wrought by all this waste, the process of producing all this Halloween paraphernalia takes a toll on our planet as well.

Halloween is a time of fun and excitement, but it can also be a time of environmental damage.

Here are some tips on how to have a more sustainable halloween:

  • Instead of buying new costumes every year, consider borrowing or swapping costumes with friends or family. This will reduce the amount of waste going into landfills.
  • Make your own decorations. DIY decorations are not only more unique, but they're also usually more sustainable than store-bought ones. Not to mention a fun activity for you and your kids. Paint spooky eyes on pebbles, turn loo roll into a ghost garland or try some pine cone bats!
  • Opt for eco-friendly decorations like pumpkins, gourds, and other natural materials. These can be composted after the holiday season is over.
  • When buying sweet treats, look for brands that use sustainable packaging like paper or compostable materials. Avoid single-use plastics that end up in landfills. Look no further than PLAYin CHOC® - the ethical and organic chocolate brand.
  • Trick-or-treat with reusable bags or containers like pillowcases or reusable totes. These can be used year after year and will reduce waste.
  • Choose eco-friendly , non-toxic makeup. If you 're planning on wearing makeup this Halloween , make sure it 's eco-friendly and non - toxic . That way , you can avoid polluting the environment AND keeping harmful chemicals away from your children’s skin.
