Halloween Upcycled Costume Ideas!

Dressing up is one of the best things about Halloween. However, it also can be one of the most wasteful, as millions of Americans purchase ready-made costumes, wear them once, then cast them off. Instead of filling up landfills with once-used plastics and fabrics, get creative, and come up with your own unique look with reused and recycled materials. You’ll save money, as well as reduce impact on the planet.

But today’s kid-of-any-age can be any superhero imaginable at the drop of a $20 bill. And anything remotely eco-friendly about costumes went out the window with those dress-up-trunk days.

Typical store-bought costumes are made from all manner of earth-unfriendly materials, staring with man-made, petroleum-based fabrics and chemical dyes. And how many times have you bought a new costume that was worn once and then lost in the attic/basement/closet abyss? Rather than spend money on a new costume this year, take a look around your house for fun recycled ideas. Take a look in your garage, reinvent clothing you already have or rent a costume!
