National Costume Swap Day
Hundreds of communities across the country will gather this weekend to “swap” old costumes for new as a way to celebrate Halloween in an environmentally friendly and affordable way.
Most events are being held today at various times, though swaps are happening throughout October nationwide. For specific events visit http://www.greenhalloween.org/CostumeSwap/find_2012.html.
If you are not able to make it to a costume swap event today, consider hosting one of your own. Your friends will certainly be appreciative and it's a great way to show children the values of sharing and re-purposing.
