5 Quick Tips For Hosting A Greener Halloween Party

  • 2 of 6

1. Hunt For Natural Decorations

Fall Gourd Decorations

Most of those cheap Halloween decorations you see in the store are manufactured in China or another country. They’re also full of petroleum and scary chemicals that poison our air and water, and can irritate sensitive skin. Think about gathering yard clippings and dried leaves and stuffing them into old clothes to make a scarecrow instead. Twigs, gourds, brightly colored leaves, and other natural decorations will transform your home into an Autumn wonderland for a night, and can be composted the next day.
