Halloween is a lot of fun for both kids and adults. But it's also a parent's and landfill's worst nightmare, too. Halloween is the favorite holiday for big kids and children, and it's quickly becoming healthier and planet-friendly. Costume Swap Days are held across the U.S.; last year, over 80 American and Canadian cities held Costume Swap Day events. Now it's our turn to shine! Providing financially affordable healthy food and snack options is not impossible. We aim to get the word out that costume and treat alternatives do indeed exist.
