National Costume Swap DayTM

Costume swaps, no matter what size, can be a rewarding experience. Not only do your kids get new-to-them costumes to wear for this year’s Halloween festivities, you are saving money AND resources while reducing waste.

In fact, according to Robert Lilienfeld of the Use Less Stuff Report, roughly 25 million children in the United States celebrate Halloween. Swapping just half of their costumes would reduce annual landfill waste by 6,250 tons, equivalent to the weight of 2500 midsize cars! And this doesn’t even address adult costumes.

That’s why Green Halloween®, in partnership with Kiwi magazine and, launched National Costume Swap Day. It’s happening each and every year on the second Saturday in October.

To find a local swap near you, visit to find a participating event. If there are none, why not start one up yourself? It’s simple and not to mention a ton of fun! Register your event here.
