Don’t throw that Halloween costume out just yet kids. You may have resigned yourself to buying your little one a PVC-laiden plastic super-suit but that doesn’t mean it must all be for not. Safemama had a great idea I’m passing on – next year, try a Costume Swap Party. This is not to be confused with an adult swap party. I went to one at Favela Chic in London a couple of years ago. Good clean fun.
It turns out there is even a national ‘green’ holiday dedicated to swapping costumes, October 8th. Who knew. This way, your child’s next alter ego has a chance to off-gas before he/she wears it and you are recycling. It’s also a great excuse for adults to get together with cocktails. So for you Martha Stewarts out there, calendar for next year!
