Other ways to have an Ecoween:
Costume Swap Party:
This prior-to Halloween party is costume required and allows children to swap their old costume for one that is "new-to-them" from another guest. Send out recycled invitations, bob for organic apples and make it a ghoulish good time.
Combating Halloween's Carbon Footprint:
Leave the car at home and trick-or-treat locally on foot, pushing babies in strollers or pulling them in wagons. Beyond getting exercise, you'll teach your tots a valuable lesson in respecting Mother Earth.
