Halloween can be  truly a time of plastic madness what with the masks, fake blood and sweets. I beg you to consider just how evil all that plastic is. So here are some plastic free ideas…

Pumpkin Lanterns

Each year finds me  busy carving my own biodegradable lantern. It’s easy ; buy your self a vegetable, hollow it out cut out a face (or message) and stick a candle in. You can then make soup out of the innards.
I used to be too tight to buy a pumpkin so used swede instead.  I have to admit that swede soup is not as nice. Also pumpkins are easier to carve – its hard work hollowing out swedes.

More plastic free fun…

  • Get (or make) some fabric trick or treat bags to take out with you – not to my house obvs.
  • Buy plastic free sweets for when the ghouls come calling.
  • Use compostable disposable partyware
  • Make a reusable burlap witches hat .
  • make your own costumes

  1. know what you mean about the bad Karma! Sometimes I forget people actually read my blog when posting some piece of silliness. Thats the downside of sitting in a dark room, on your own, with only your wifi for company. Thanks for linking.

  2. I loved it but thanks! I already get enough bad karma about being a rubbish freak, didn’t want to add to it! Will include link, good stuff here! 🙂

  3. LOL! I ws about to put your link onto my weekly school newsletter ‘greenspace’ article, but I don’t the lantern (that I particularly like) in the window would go down too well 🙂 Nice!
