I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR. I love it so much, and it provides me with a distraction from the really scary thoughts about climate change. There is so much garbage and waste generated on Halloween, that is the real scary part. Think of all the single use plastic black and orange décor that just is used for a few days at most and then is thrown out and sent to the land fill where it takes 400 years to break down.
We are all on our plastic free “journey” and your thought might have turned to seasonal decorating. Gourds are great for that. No Plastic. Will compost. But have you ever looked at a Martha Stewart inspired display and thought: Can I eat this? Just me?
