Going Green for Halloween in Cumming

Here are some costume and decoration tips and tricks to ensure that your Halloween is fun and eco-friendly.

If you want to save some money this Halloween, consider going green by making your child’s costume, hosting a costume swap or buying a "recycled” costume from a local thrift store.

Kids love homemade costumes, and crafty parents can take pride in creating something amazing based on their imaginations.

Craft Stores in the Cumming Area:

Hobby Lobby

Michael's

Hosting a costume swap is another great way to keep old costumes out of landfills. Have a party with a small group such as a preschool class, church group or scout troop.

Thrift stores offer an array of inexpensive “recycled” costumes for everyone from babies to adults, as well as a large selection of new costumes, masks, hats and Halloween makeup. You can also find used decorations such as pumpkin-shaped votive holders and Halloween-themed candles at a fraction of the price you would pay for new ones.

Thrift Stores in the Area:

Abba House Thrift Store

Family Haven Thrift Stores

Goodwill

Humane Society Thrift Store

Kids Go Green

The Place

Decorate the outside of your home in an environmentally friendly way with pumpkins, squash and dried corn stalks, which can all be composted when the holiday is over.
