Costume Swap Day - Save the Date


July 19, 2012

I know what you're thinking ... I've heard of Christmas in July, but Halloween?  Isn't it too early to start thinking about costumes and candy and craziness?  Not if you're thinking about ways to minimize waste and maximize fun!  And there's no better way to do that for Halloween than participating in National Costume Swap Day.

A costume swap is recycling at its most fun. Kids get new-to-them costumes, and parents get to save money and the planet.  National Costume Swap Day is the brainchild of Corey and Lynn, moms living right here in Issaquah, and founders of a grassroots, non-profit known as Green Halloween®. Last year Macaroni Kid partnered with Small Threads and Adventure Kids to bring this event to our community with DROP-SWAP-SHOP, and we have big plans to do it again this year!

Before you toss out that "old" costume or head to the store to buy a new one, plan to participate in National Costume Sway Day on Saturday, October 13, 2012.  In September, we will be announcing drop-off locations and more details!

If you are a community business interested in participating as a sponsor (including our Swag Bag program), please contact Dana at
