I’m so excited to share the news about Charlotte’s Green Halloween costume Swap. Save money and keep the landfills free of Transformers costumes.

You can drop costumes off from 9/29 to 10/6 (locations below) and pick out a “new” costume 10/9. Only children’s costumes, please. Then you can pick out a costume on 10/7 at Atherton Mill, 2104 South Boulevard.

Get your Halloween off to a “Green” start at Charlotte’s Green Halloween Costume Swap. Don’t buy new this year – save some money and help green our community by swapping out your children’s gently used costumes.

Hosted by Natural Luxe and Atherton Mill and Market, this is a great opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint and support your local farmers and vendors. We will have goody bags filled with great discounts and offers from our sponsors for the 1st 100 swappers to arrive.

For the kids – A Green Halloween design contest sponsored by Chico Bags. Kids can design a trick or treat bag and be entered into the 2010 Halloween Bag Contest.

Green Fact from Use Less Stuff – If half the costumes kids wear each year were swapped, we could reduce the annual waste by 6,250 tons, equivalent to 2500 mid-size cars!

Drop off costumes September 20th – October 6th at the following Charlotte locations.

Keller Williams Realty SouthPark – 2115 Rexford Road 704-602-0400
Nationwide Insurance – Jim Mishoe, 820 Tyvola Road 704-649-5358
Belly Elan – 9816 Rea Rd – Shops at Blakeney 704-544-3226
The Blvd at NoDa – 453 E 36th St 704-332-0142

The deadline to submit costumes is October 7th. Feel free to contact Jennifer with Natural Luxe at 704-904-2535 or with any questions.

We are accepting gently used children’s costumes. For every costume you donate, you will receive a ticket to swap out for a new one. We will gladly take donations of costumes too and help you clear some space in your home!

From 10am – 12pm swappers who have donated a costume will be able to pick out a “new” costume, after 12pm the swap will be open to the public to select a costume. All costumes left after the swap is over will be donated to a local charity.
