Tips for Eco Friendly Halloween Decor
Finally trick-or-treaters around the world are embracing Halloween and everyone is going all out when it comes to elaborate costumes, themed parties and spooky décor. While it is considered to be one of the most enjoyable festivals or celebrations, Halloween does end up being quite wasteful with tons of disposable accessories and materials.
But, there are ideas that can help you have an Eco-friendly Halloween, without compromising on the fun. Something that is safe when it comes to the planet. While celebrating Halloween, single-use plastics are a big no. We can all contribute to making the festival more eco-friendly by avoiding plastic waste.
1. Get a Pumpkin
One cannot celebrate Halloween without a pumpkin and if you want to be eco-friendly then don’t waste your pumpkin once Halloween is over. Once you are done with using it for the décor at your campsite, use it to make compost.
2. DIY Costumes
As they all say; reduce, reuse and recycle. Make your own DIY costume at home by repurposing old clothes from your wardrobe. Besides, it’s always a great idea to DIY the accessories as well to save money while also avoiding plastic packaging from shops.
3. Use Eco-friendly Décor
Use items from around your home to make the decor you are looking for. For example, a simple egg carton can be transformed into a spooky art by painting it and adding goggle eyes to it. This way, you’ll be able to reuse the carton for seedlings and cut down the plastic waste too.
4. Keep lighting minimalistic
While you are enjoying at the campsite, let’s not forget about the wildlife around the area. Keep the lights to a minimum to not disturb them and turn the lights off when the party is over.
5. Next Halloween
There are many things that don’t have a biodegradable/recyclable feature like tablecloths or candy baskets. For such things, you can store them till the next Halloween and reuse them to create spooky decor items or simply re-feature them at your party.
6. Easy Maintenance and Cleaning
At the campsite, the location is very widespread and it is important to understand that the waste from the décor will be all over. That is why using items like plastic confetti should be avoided as they are hard to collect and clean. However, you may use paper confetti as they are completely biodegradable. Keep in mind to use items that are easy to clean and maintain or at least biodegradable.
When you use decorations that are safe for the environment, the whole spirit of the party will be clean and pure as well. Eco-friendly options offer no compromise in terms of creating a spooky and scary setting at your campsite.
