Have a green Halloween
Say boo to waste this spooky season with some tips from Staffordshire County Council.
Did you know, 7 million Halloween costumes are thrown away in the UK each year?
This year, why not make your own costume? It’s cheaper and more sustainable.
Keep your costume for next year or take it to your nearest recycling centre.
Did you know, every year in the UK, 18,000 tonnes of pumpkins go to waste?
Instead of putting your pumpkin in the bin, turn it into compost instead.
There are also so many delicious pumpkin recipes that you can try to reduce your waste this Halloween.
