5 Quick Tips For Hosting A Greener Halloween Party

5. Ditch The Disposables

Biodegradable Paper Plates

If you’re hosting a Halloween party, you might be tempted to load up on pumpkin-colored paper napkins and paper plates. While these disposables might make clean-up easier, they support deforestation and make up a huge portion of unnecessary landfill waste. Think about asking each guest to bring their own glass or napkin to cut down on paper waste, or think about choosing a biodegradable servingware option instead.

Check out “Takeout Without: Leave Disposable Packaging Behind” for tips on eliminating wasteful plastics.
