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).
