Many people associate Halloween with orange and black, but this year the Missouri Department of Natural Resources is hoping to make “green” just as popular for the spooky holiday.
DNR has released some tips to help make this year’s fall and Halloween celebrations more environmentally friendly. They encourage people to take advantage of local farmers’ markets for pumpkins, squash, and other seasonal favorites. They also suggest renting or purchasing costumes from second hand stores. Experts say using reusable bags for trick-or-treating, walking house to house instead of driving, and sending emails instead of paper invitations can all make for a very “green” Halloween.
