Green Halloween’s National Costume Swap Day: A Hand-Me-Down Costume Tradition

Imagine inheriting gently used Halloween costumes for your children every year.  No shopping, no sewing, and no innovating with tinfoil and cardboard boxes.  That was the vision of the people over at Green Halloween, a fabulous little site packed with all sorts of eco-friendly resources for your celebration this year.  They came up with National Costume Swap Day, a free event where people can bring their old Halloween costumes and swap them for new ones without paying a dime.  Since the official date is October 9, 2010, you probably missed the local Halloween costume swap in your area this year, but you will still be able to participate in the online Halloween costume swap for a few more weeks.
