When planning a costume for a party, Cosplay event, or annual calendar event such as Earth Day, Christmas, Easter, Halloween - please consider the individual and collective amount of waste generated. This KEA Kids News article shines a light.
Get creative and make your own costumes rather than buying consumables. Visit the ReUse Academy for resources: craft supplies, paper and packaging, textiles ...
Use biodegradable materials where possible.
Pass a pre-loved costume on to family or friends, local kura, kindy, secondhand shop.
