Halloween is coming up fast! Do you have your costume ready? If not, no worries we’re here to help. Here are the top 4 eco-friendly Halloween costume tips:
1- Homemade Face Paint
Instead of purchasing overpriced plastic and rubber masks, or using toxic makeup, make your own face paint by combining cornstarch, solid shortening, and food color (optional). With a little creativity, the perfect faux mask can be created.
2- Borrow A Friend’s Uniform
If you have a friend who has a job with a very recognizable uniform such as fast food cashier or delivery person, ask to borrow their uniform.
3- Hit Up The Local Resale Shop
Go to a local thrift store & you’ll most likely find a huge selection of clothing just waiting to be transformed into the perfect Halloween costume for cheap.
4- Reuse That Old Costume
Have a costume swap party with your friends & family, or check out freecycle for used costumes in your area.
