• When carving your Jack-o’-lantern this year, use the inner meat to make holiday favorites such as pumpkin pie, muffins or bread, and use the seeds to make a dried pumpkin seed snack.
  • After the holiday is over throw your Jack-o’-lantern into your compost pile.
  • When trick-or-treating take a reusable bag instead of a plastic one and reuse it from year to year.
  • Make your own costumes from old clothes or cloths bought from a consignment shop.
  • Donate old costumes to local theatres or schools for reuse in plays and other activities.
