Green Your Halloween: Decorate Mindfully

Buy local pumpkinsIt's almost time for ghosts, witches, and zombies to roam the streets in search of treats. This week, we'll help you prepare to celebrate Halloween without making the state of the planet any scarier.

Tip #3: Harvest natural and recycled decor.

Make a pilgrimage to a local farm to stock up on pumpkins, apples, and gourds. These edible items can be carved or left whole and arranged with leaves and pinecones, all of which can be composted after the holiday. For spookier decorations, find creative ways to use materials you have at home. One idea: Transform fabric scraps or old hankerchiefs into a gaggle of ghosts.
