Episode 35 - Plastic Free Halloween
Happy Halloween! ♻️🎃💙🐬🐢
Halloween costumes create over 25,000 pounds of plastic waste every single year. Also, millions of plastic bottles, and food wrappers top the list of plastic waste in the ocean. Shore Buddies Ocean Ambassador Mikaela Nichols is showing us some great tips how to celebrate a plastic free Halloween this year and how to keep plastics out of the ocean. ♻️🎃💙🐢🐬
More Ways to celebrate plastic free this Halloween
*Looking for non-candy treats? Wooden pencils, crayons, erasers, small books, and Shore Buddies Straw Buddy Reusable Straws are all great alternatives!
* Gather treats, using a basket or reusable cloth bag. If you plan on doing lots of gathering, an old pillowcase is perfect!
*Skip the plastic or Styrofoam pumpkin, and carve a real one. Use gourds and decorative corn. If possible, compost your natural decorations when you are finished with them.
*Build a haunted house out of a big recycled box.
*Make ghosts out of an old sheet or T-shirt.
*Check your closet (or better yet, the closet of an older adult) for costume ideas. *That bridesmaid dress in the back of the closet? Perfect for a princess!
*Sports shirts, and you can be your favorite athlete!
*Paint white bones on a black sweatsuit, and you can be a skeleton!
