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.
