Halloween competition

Reuse your way to a great prize

Are you planning to decorate your home for Halloween? Instead of buying something new why not make spooky decorations from things you already have around the house?

With the right imagination, toilet roll cardboard inner tubes can become bats, empty plastic milk containers become ghosts or monsters and pine cones transformed into scary spiders.

We’ve launched a competition for children and adults to make Halloween more environmentally-friendly.  Ten winners will receive books on Zero Waste recipes and ideas.
