Go Green, Save Cash With National Costume Swap Day
Looking for a way to come up with an amazing costume for your child this Halloween that won't leave you living on candy corn and popcorn balls til your next paycheck arrives? Or just want to do your part to help raise a little eco-awareness in your kids?
Take part in National Costume Swap Day. Swap.com has partnered with the nonprofit Green Halloween to launch the nationwide community event, slated to take place Oct. 9.
Besides saving money, swapping the costumes of only half of the children who celebrate Halloween would reduce annual landfill waste by 6,250 tons, equivalent to the weight of 2,500 midsize cars, according to Green Halloween.
