For the party:
9. Serve food and drinks in non-plastic wares. It is always best to use actual crockery, silverware, and glasses. But if you really must use disposable wares, consider biodegradable options made of wood and paper. You can also serve food that can be consumed using only wooden sporks, skewers, or chopsticks. Make sure that these materials are properly disposed of after use.
10. And last but not the least, recycle empty drink containers from your Halloween party. Allocate one bin or garbage bag where your guests can collect all the used drink containers, so they can be returned for recycling after the party. Doing this enables your guests to share the responsibility of making the cleanup easier for you.
To simplify everything, just remember to keep waste organized for collection and disposal, minimize single-use materials as much as possible, and reuse or donate. Celebrating Halloween is possible while being mindful of the environmental impacts – and taking measures to reduce waste is the key to enjoying the occasion without the ghosts of litter and waste haunting you for the coming days. Have a Happy Hallow-green!
