Spooky Costumes

The spookiest part about Halloween is the waste. More than 2000 tonnes of plastic waste from costumes, with 40% only worn once!

Halloween will look a bit different this year so get creative and allow yourself to be a bit haphazard if you plan to dress up. Be inspired by these throwback looks or check out Hubbub for more ideas.

Hubbub also have an #EatYourPumpkin campaign, as they estimate that 12.8 million pumpkins are expected to be left uneaten at Halloween. If you are carving a pumpkin or using them as decorations, you can then get even more enjoyment out of them by turning them into a delicious soup, curry, pie… Find pumpkin recipes at BBC Good Food or vegan and gluten free options at Minimalist Baker.
