According to Green Halloween, If just 50% of kids in the United States swapped costumes rather than buy new, we would save 6,250 tons of landfill waste!
In conjunction with National Costume Swap Day, the Ann Arbor Learning Community PTSO and the Green School Committee will be sponsoring a costume swap on October 7 from 4:00 until 6:00pm at Ann Arbor Learning Community, 3980 Research Park Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48108. Child and adult costumes and accessories, laundered and in good condition, can be brought to the event and traded for a new-to-you costume. Children will also be able to create a design to submit to the ChicoBag & Green Halloween bag design contest.

Even if you cannot find the costume your child absolutely has to have, you may be able to find some awesome dress up clothes. We are actually going the other way this year...using dress-up clothes as our costume.
