Green Halloween Edmonds reminds parents that they don’t need to spend money on yet another Halloween costume this year. Instead, you can save money and get a good-as-new costume through the Green Halloween Edmonds Costume Swap, scheduled for Oct. 9 from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. at Coldwell Banker Bain, 108 5th Ave. S., in Edmonds.
The costume swap is being hosted by Edmonds-based Womentorz.com and Coldwell Banker Bain and is part of the Puget Sound-based Green Halloween national movement to make Halloween more healthy for children and more sustainable for the planet. Led by Edmonds resident Melinda Knight, Green Halloween Edmonds has the support of the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce and will be incorporated into downtown Edmonds’ annual Halloween festivities this year.
Costumes in good condition can be dropped off at Coldwell Banker Bain after Oct. 1 through the day of the swap. Those donating costumes will receive a token if they want to return to pick up a new costume the day of the event. Any leftover costumes will be donated to charity.
Knight is currently seeking volunteers who can help during the event. For more information, visit the Green Halloween Edmonds Facebook page.
