Did you know that Halloween parties generate more waste than any of your ordinary parties?
It’s quite disturbing to know that almost 90% of American families buy Halloween costumes that are mostly made up of non-biodegradable material. All this waste becomes part of the landfills that are already filled with non-degradable material.
7 Million Costumes Are Binned
Moreover, the research says that around 7 million costumes are manufactured out of plastic. And most of them eventually get dumped and aren’t used again. This is something that needs to be reconsidered by us as responsible citizens.
The environment is getting disturbed day by day with every step we take. So, make these little steps more valuable and responsible.
We aren’t discouraging the celebration of Halloween. Rather, we’re more concerned about the environmental pollution which it creates.
There are many ways in which you can throw a zero-waste Halloween party. We’re here to give you some of the best ways to throw such a nature-friendly party.
Don’t Waste Your Pumpkin
It has been noted that people just scoop out the pulp and seeds and throw them away. You’re missing a lot of opportunities, my friend!
There’s a lot you can do with the pulp and pumpkin seeds. The internet is filled with different recipes that you can try with the pulp. The Pulp Puree, a refreshing face mask, adding them in oatmeal as breakfast, are just a few examples of using the pulp.
With the pumpkin seeds, you can make a crunchy snack by roasting them with proper seasoning. Again, the internet is here to help you!
Don’t Use Plastic Dinnerware
Plastic dinnerware items are not biodegradable, which means that they’ve infinite life. They’re not going to get dissolved with the soil out there. Life under the ocean is getting disturbed by plastic waste.
So, swap the plasticware items with eco-friendly disposable dinnerware. The eco-friendly disposable cutlery sets will eventually decompose naturally. You can get pretty much anything.
Decorate Your Food
You can do a lot with the selection of your menu. Surprise your guests with something unique this year. You can include different Halloween-related recipes to make your Halloween full of enriched vibes.
The most popular and easiest recipe to try is the cookies. You can cut the bread in different shapes - the bat-shaped bread looks amazing, by the way. You can add anything to make it more interesting. Peanut butter, jam, jelly, anything would work depending upon the taste of your guests.
You can try pretty much any shape to make your sandwiches look interestingly spooky.
Now, it’s time to enjoy your Eco-friendly Halloween Party with your loved ones and make some healthy memories for the rest of the year!
