Sustainable halloween costumes

Party, costume and balloon supplier Amscan has launched a collection of 100% sustainable Halloween costumes which will be available in time for this year’s holiday season The exciting new line of 100% sustainable costumes are available now in time for this year’s Halloween season, with a range of children’s designs, all available in sizes from two to 10 years-old. The six classic designs have all been carefully designed to be merchandised together and work well as a cohesive range. They include; Mythical Witch, Skeleton, Neon Reaper, Neon Skeleton, Werewolf and Rose Vampiress. The costumes are made of fully recycled materials (exclusive of trims), with detailing added in sublimation print. The costume, including the label, comprise no virgin materials whatsoever. “The packaging is also made from material suitable which can be recycled after use – although it has a secondary function before that, as it can be turned inside out to create a handy trick-or-treat bag!” revealed head of marketing Jennifer Wilson. Amscan has also considered the needs of its online retailers, with packaging which fits the requirements of a large letter. “The sizing makes these costumes manageable and cost-effective to post out,” explained Jennifer. “For our bricks and mortar retailers, we have made sure to include a pop out euro-hook, so hopefully we’ve accommodated for as many solutions as possible during this first launch.”
