If you’re like the parents of other trick-or-treaters across the nation, you probably find yourself with more candy than you can possibly consume. For some families, it has become a tradition to send the collected candies to American troops. For other families, the tradition is to toss the leftovers into the garbage when the kids aren’t looking. Orange and black candy wrappers seem out of place among the mistletoe and holiday garlands—yes, it can last that long!
How many trick-or-treaters visited your home this year toting pillow cases as treat bags? Probably not many. For decades, old pillow cases were the ideal choice on Halloween. They were big enough and strong enough to hold the heaps of candy gathered over the two-hour trek through the neighborhood without splitting open. Neither were costumes weren’t purchased in stores—they were designed from clothing articles laying around the house. Jeans, cowboy boots, a plaid shirt, and a cowboy hat made the perfect cowboy ensemble. Cut holes in a white sheet and voila! You were a ghost. These days, kids with homemade creations are berated as having second-class costumes by those who are bedecked in the fabricated, trendy ones from the store. While it’s hard to argue that sparkly princess costumes and tough Star Wars designs aren’t adorable on our little boys and ghouls, homemade alternatives and pillow cases point to the genesis of conservation—the “Reuse” portion of the 3-R’s.
