Halloween is not often a holiday associated with sustainability.
Come to think of it, not many are...but at Trek Light Gear, we believe in leaving the world a better place than we found it, which means incorporating sustainability into our daily lives.
This Halloween, we’ve come up with a few ways you can dress up as a ghoul, goblin, or a Game of Thrones character without having to sacrifice being green in the process.
Lights, blood, makeup, oh my! Decorations are an essential part of Halloween - and we’re not suggesting you skimp on them.
Instead, head to a local vintage store or search your closets for everyday items you could use to turn your house into a spooky haunted home.
Got packing peanuts? Paint them to look like worms and voila! You’ve got creepy crawlers without having spent a dime.
Local farms are a great way to keep things sustainable.
Visit your local apple orchard for pumpkins, apples, and cider.
Buying from a store might be convenient, but supporting your local farmers goes a long way and makes for a great outing.
If you’re purchasing pumpkins for Halloween, put them to good use.
Toast the seeds, make dog treats, turn the inside into soup; you can do more with a pumpkin than turn it into a Jack-O-Lantern.
Put your baking skills to the test and make treats from scratch.
Yes, everyone loves a Snickers bar, but they also love homemade treats.
Try Pinterest for some scary recipes that’ll have you screaming (for more).
If you have kids or you yourself are going trick-or-treating, bring along a reusable item for candy.
A pillowcase is a classic staple, but a small bucket works too. Use something that can be reused and recycled year after year.
