    There's no escaping it, Halloween is right around the corner, and an eco-friendly celebration can be easy as trick-or-treating.

    There's no escaping it, Halloween is right around the corner, and as North Texans plan their frightful evening of fun they should realize an echo-friendly celebration is easy as trick-or-treating.
     

    At Walmart in Highland Village, sales associates are ready to guide you to the organic produce for parties, CFL lightbulbs to help ghosts and ghouls find your house and -- if you are adventurous enough to make your own costume -- you can start with T-shirts made with organic cotton.


    You can spend money on a new costume, or hold a get together with your friends and swap costumes or props.

    There's no escaping it, Halloween is right around the corner, and an eco-friendly celebration can be easy as trick-or-treating.

     
     "I thought about saving it for next year instead of throwing it away this year," says Walmart customer Sarah Zabloski.


    You can even use a fabric grocery bag for all the candy you expect to collect.
     

    "It's bigger, and it costs less," said Brad Cullum, a Walmart Manager. "Those bags are only $1 per bag, and you can use those for trick or treating."
     


    The inside of a carved pumpkin doesn't have to be thrown out.  A person can bake the seeds or use the filling for pumpkin pie.


    Other eco-friendly ideas: 


    To add to your creepy décor, use organic cotton balls to make spider webs and an old sheet to make ghosts.

    Think of costume ideas that can be re-used, like a football or hockey jersey.

    Walmart also offers a Shake and Shine OmegaLight.  The  9 inch battery-free shake flashlight is powered through kinetic motion to shine its LED lights through the neighborhoods.
