Halloween is just around the corner, and you might be starting to panic about what costume you'll wear this year. But before you go out to a big box store and purchase an expensive Pirate costume made from cheap materials, might I suggest a more eco friendly alternative? Costumes made from recycled materials are a great way to help the environment... and express your own creativity. If you look through the materials in your house, I'm sure you can find the perfect elements to create a pirate costume that will rival anything you can buy in one of those Halloween stores that pop up in shut down store fronts every October. And if you still have the costume you wore in previous years, find ways to use to create a totally new costume. You don't have to repeat yourself just because you're recycling, but why spend a lot of money on something you're only going to use for one night that could be manufactured using harmful materials? When you think of it that way, there's nothing more terrifying. I'm Elizabeth Chambers. Check back here for more eco friendly news and tips, right here on LivingGreenChannel.Com.
