It's Easy to be Green This Halloween

Remember to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle during this Halloween and keep Lake Forest green! Here are a few tips to go green during the spookiest time of the year! 

  • Green your costume by making your costume by hand. Host a pre-Halloween costume swap in your community, repurpose existing clothes, or fashion costumes from recycled materials.
  • Opt for healthy treats by giving small boxes of raisins, mandarin oranges, trail mix, crayons, stickers, organic granola bars, or Rainforest Alliance Certified chocolate.
  • Decorate with locally-grown gourds and pumpkins to reduce waste and carbon emissions. Use recycled paper to make window decorations like spooky Halloween trees and masks.
  • Reduce and reuse waste, recycle your pumpkins, leaves, straw and any other organic material by composting it. Pumpkins make great food for wildlife.
