While the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to pose unique challenges to us all, Halloween can still be fun and safe, as well as sustainable and eco-friendly. Here are 5 tips to help you add some green to your Halloween festivities.
With individual action, we can collectively support a clean environment during Halloween activities and celebrations. In addition, the CDC is offering several tips and considerations to help ensure safety during Halloween and the upcoming holiday season.
No matter how you celebrate, we remind everyone to keep trash and litter off the ground. We recommend that individuals exercise physical distancing and wear a face covering when interacting with others, wash hands often, and avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. In addition, used masks, gloves, and wipes should not be littered under any circumstance and should be disposed of in secure trash containers. These items are not recyclable and should not be placed in recycling collection bins.
