Holidays, whatever they may be, are a "gold mine" for an environmentalist like me.

In today's society, it's obvious that parties are synonymous with overconsumption and excessive spending. And overconsumption means overflowing garbage cans, overflowing landfill sites and our shared living environment takes a beating from a pollution point of view.

Holidays, including Halloween, are not only stressful for the planet, but also for our wallets. And yet, holidays are meant to bring people together: a festive time spent together.

So I suggest you do just that, and use what you already have on hand. I bet you already have a lot of what you need to have a spooky time.

The possibilities for eco-friendly decorating are literally endless. We're not going to list them all here, of course, but we'll show you a few that might inspire you.

Still life
By using "dead" nature and putting it back afterwards to decompose and return to the earth, your impact is zero. You can find branches on your property or in a wooded area.
reusable decorations
Pumpkins are a great Halloween food for as long as you eat them! Don't like the taste? Please find something else to decorate your environment. Buying them locally goes without saying, and to minimize the ecological impact, you can opt for organic produce or even grow them at home.

Miscellaneous end-of-life items
And finally, you can reuse miscellaneous items that no longer serve their original purpose. This could be, for example, scraps of wood, fencing, scraps of end-of-life fabric, etc.
