Sure, Halloween is usually orange and black, but this year it can be green too! Halloween is a perfect holiday for eco-friendly choices. The scariest thing on Halloween is not the ghost or the vampire, but the fact that we are destroying this planet. Make it a Green Ha-Ra-lloween by using Ha-Ra eco-friendly products to clean your life.
Plus here are 5 other tips for your HallowGREEN!
1. Reuse materials from around the house for your costume.
This is the best part of Halloween, finding random items from around the house and weaving them together in a clever costume that your friends and family will certainly roll their eyes at. No need to go out and buy something to wear for just one night, and then store or eventually throw away. Even better, use recyclable materials like bottles, cans, newspaper, toilet paper rolls, etc. to get really creative.
2. Use old leftover candles for your Jack-o-Lantern.
Everybody has a low, almost used up candle lying around. Instead of buying new candles for Jack, light him up with that random gross scented candle your aunt gave you. It’ll be outside, so you don’t have to smell it.
3. Use a pillowcase for trick or treating.
Instead of a plastic bag or plastic pumpkin, just use a pillowcase. Hey, it’s that simple! Plus it is WAY bigger and can hold a whole lot more candy.
4. Two words: Pumpkin Compost
If you are reading this, there is slightly higher than average chance that you have a compost pile, or are looking for the right time to start one. Well here it is! Pumpkins are great for compost! Do your neighbors a favor, make a trip around the neighborhood and collect their rotten pumpkins. More compost for you. Remove any remaining seeds (and bake them up as tomorrow’s snack), cut the pumpkins into pieces, and add them to the compost! Win win for everyone!
5. Clean up after the Halloween party with Ha-Ra.
Halloween parties are so much fun, but can also leave a crazy, scary mess. If you don’t have any Ha-Ra products yet, start here with the Ha-Ra Starter Kit. The Ha-Ra Protective Formula in the kit has a highly environmentally-friendly formula (produced from raw plant materials). It helps with the cleaning process, protects the cleaned surface, and protects and maintains your Ha-Ra cleaning fibers.
Don’t be scared to make good choices. The real monsters are those who don’t care about this planet. And, you can dress as a super hero and be an actual hero by using Halloween as yet another opportunity to save the day and save the earth! Happy Ha-Ra-lloween!
