National Costume Swap Day
“Swapping half the costumes kids wear at Halloween would reduce annual landfill waste by 6,250 tons, equal to the weight of 2500 midsize cars!”
Everybody nowadays – or almost everyone – is concerned and actively helping with making our planet Earth cleaner. On October 8th 2011, National Costume Swap Day will take place all across the nation.
This is a fantastic event you can participate to and get your children involved in a fun way.
>Costumes are laid out on tables or hung on hangars according to size with the table/rack clearly marked.
> Kids can try on costumes, but have enough “staff” available to supervise to ensure things are hung back up or laid on the right table.
> Owners can reclaim costumes that are not swapped or donate leftovers to Goodwill.
> Have a photographer take photos (with parent’s written permission) or shoot some video of the event (ditto on the permission).
