National Costume Swap Day – a great way to recycle and save

An exciting fun event is just around the corner. National Costume Swap DayTM is this Saturday.  It’s a great way to save from buying yet another costume and it’s a fun way to recycle and reuse.

Costume swaps mean fewer resources are used to make new costumes, less transportation and less gas is used and there’s less waste from “old” costumes being tossed in the trash. And organizing a costume swap can be fun too. It can be as simple as getting some neighbors together for a swap or organizing a bigger, community-wide event.
