BOO It’s scary what we waste at Halloween! It’s not just ghosts and witches that can be scary at this time of year, but also it’s scary to think about all the extra rubbish that Halloween festivities can generate - including pumpkins sweet wrappers, packaging and costumes. Follow our tips to enjoy this late autumn tradition without creating so much rubbish and have a GREEN HALLOWEEN! 10 million pumpkins are sold in the UK every year and 95% of them are used to carve scary jack-o-lanterns for Halloween. Most of these pumpkins end up straight in the bin after 31st October being completely wasted! Love Pumpkin Soup…Hate Waste! Don’t waste your pumpkin this Halloween…turn it into yummy pumpkin soup for the whole family to enjoy! Soups are a great way to use up any wrinkly vegetables you may have hiding in the back of the fridge! Don’t forget to help save Spud by mixing in some potatoes with your delicious, nutritious pumpkin. Worried about making too much? Soups can easily be frozen and make an easy warming meal for the busy days leading up to the holidays when you may not have time to cook.And don’t bin those pumpkin seeds you scoop out either; they can make a tasty snack or plant them to grow next year’s terrifying creation. When you’ve finished with your pumpkin don’t forget to recycle it in your green wheelie bin or compost it in your home composter. If your compost bin is dead and buried, visit or call 0844 571 444 to get a discount on a new one. Don’t be in the dark! While trick or treating, use rechargeable batteries in your torch. They will last much longer and reduce waste at the same time. Even better, try a wind up torch that doesn’t use batteries at all! Treats without the trick! Look for treats that are waste-free like fruit and homemade biscuits, or reusable toys like colouring pencils and puzzle books.
