    Instead of using a plastic trick or treat bag that gets thrown away, why not use a cloth/canvas bag that can be reused another year?

    Or you can even use the canvas bag for grocery shopping when only buying a few items. Then you can use it through out the year. With 3 or more kids, that is 3 plastic bags saved when shopping.

    Instead of buying a Halloween costume, make one at home with items laying around the house. You can recycle old clothes into a costume.

    Go as a mummy. You can just use tissue to wrap around yourself. You won't need to spend much for a costume.

    Here's an idea:

    Get a decent size pumpkin from a local farm. Your helping to support local growers plus it'll get the family out of the home for a couple of hours.

    Make a jack-o-lantern out of it. Careful with knives of course, but you could do any number of designs from a complete artsy image drawn on to a wild carving.

    Keep the seeds, roast them to make a tasty treat. The pumpkin becomes your decoration outside on your stoop, the seeds become a treat and when the season is over, the pumpkin becomes a fertilizer.

    Look ****** for the roasting seeds directions... I unfortunately can't post links yet but I love pumpkin seeds!

    Use old clothes and make a Halloween costume out of that instead buying a new one. Thatís my idea of a green Halloween.
