    My eco-tip for today is to sell or donate some of your used clothes to value village or that thrift store on bridgeport! While you’re there, pick up a pre-loved halloween costume 🙂 It’s cheaper, more sustainable, and wayyyy cooler !

  2. That is a great tip!! You can also trade your last year costume with a friend, or a family memeber for their previously used costume that way you consume less and don’t spend extra money!!

  3. the picture is really eye opening, i don’t think people actually realize how much space we dedicate to cars… all the roads and parkinglots, highways and driveways add up to so much. Also buying clothes from places like value village you can find some awesome & unique stuff 2nd hand that puts more value into the item itself
