I read a truly disturbing statistic this month… Someone did the math, and we could divert 6,250 tons (TONS!) of landfill waste if half the kids in American swapped costumes this Halloween instead of buying new ones. I know that we’re not in America, but you get the point.
Now, I’m a Halloween lover – and I would never judge the purchase of a super adorable costume! But we also have a couple sitting around our house from previous Halloween celebrations, and it makes good sense to share them.
So in honour of tomorrow – National Costume Swap Day (for real!) – this is your place to let us know if you have a costume up for grabs or if you’re looking for one to buy or borrow. Leave a comment with the details and then organize yourselves to buy, borrow, or trade (I’ll be sending out the official MOMs contact list this weekend so you’ll be able to call or email each other).
If any of our moms are super crafty and might be available to barter alterations or costume parts/accessories, you can let us know about that here too.
