Halloween may just have gotten even more fun this year. And perhaps a bit greener and more affordable, too. Instead of spending a lot of money on your costume, how about swapping your old one for a free one? And in the process, enjoy some great activities.
Not impressing Bella with last year’s vampire outfit? Bring last year's clean costumes, accessories and funky clothing or just help yourself to some free Halloween fashion at GrowNYC’s Halloween Costume Swap. Swap items limited to clothing, costumes, and accessories only please.
Take a sneak peek at Build It Green! NYC’s new non-profit salvage surplus warehouse in Gowanus, Brooklyn - their second reuse center in the city! Activities include recycled cardboard mask-making with Solar One, spoke flowers hand crafting with Recycle-A-Bicycle, Halloween-themed music, a bone-chilling haunted house, festive family-friendly movies to watch, and an apple/donut-eating contest thanks to GrowNYC’s Greenmarket! There will also be a raffle for a children’s bike, thanks to Recycle-A-Bicycle."
