Zero Waste Halloween inspiration

Halloween is creeping by. It is one of the most fun of festivities for kids and adults alike, but it also one that generates a huge amount of waste – from the tonnes of food waste, costumes that are thrown out after one use and end up in landfill, to the mountains of cheap plastic accessories and decorations.

Last year, 15 million pumpkins were carved in the UK – none of which were eaten. And, around 12,500 tonnes of Halloween costumes get sent to landfill each year.

There are numerous ways you can make this year a zero waste Halloween – from making your own natural decorations, searching second-hand stores for costumes to carving out oranges instead of pumpkins. For Zero Waste Halloween inspiration, check out the below video from Permacrafters.
