Supermarket chain Morrisons has announced its launch of reusable Halloween costumes for children in a bid to make the seasonal event more sustainable for shoppers.
The shop has released its new budget-friendly kids’ Halloween costume range ahead of fright night.
Now, there’s nothing stopping kids getting dressed up to mark the spooky event – plus, the range is longer lasting so you can reuse their costumes next year.
To help you get your ghoul on, we’ve rounded up the costumes currently available for kids with prices starting from £8.
Morrisons new range of children’s Halloween costumes are all machine-washable, ideal for sharing to recreate special spooky memories from one year to the next.
The full range is made using responsibly sourced fabric and recycled polyester from plastic bottles
Plus, all hangers are now 100% plastic free and replaced with cardboard instead.
Research by the retailer claims that thousands of Halloween costumes end up in landfill each year, after being bought for the occasion and then chucked away.
Most of these are made using plastic-based materials like polyester.
However, Morrisons is aiming to reduce their impact on the environment by creating conscious costumes made from recycled polyester from plastic bottles.
The conscious supermarket has also reconsidered the durability of what was once a single, annual use purchase.
Instead, they’ve chosen a more sustainable approach for the new range.
All the new costumes in the range are machine washable for the first time on a gentle/hand wash cycle.
This is to give customers the chance to re-use and lovingly pass on costumes amongst family and friends – eliminating the need for single-use purchases.
With prices ranging from £8 to £15, there’s a costume for all children. Plus they come in a variety of sizes for kids, starting from age two to 12.
The wicked range is full of horrifying Halloween costumes for the little ghouls in your house to enjoy.
From the scariest of werewolves to the creepiest corpse bride and the infamous Harry Potter, there’s something that suits each child’s preference.
There’s also a pumpkin costume, skeleton onesie, skater zombie, swamp zombie, grim reaper, neon witch, unicorn, sequin skeleton onesie, vampiress and a zombie cheerleader.
All Halloween costumes from the new range are available to buy in stores across the country.
Jodie Glew, Buying Manager at Morrisons, said: “Listening to customers, we know that while they love Halloween and the theatre that comes with dressing up, making the event more sustainable is really important to them.
“So we’ve worked hard with our team this year to create a range that is not only made using 100% responsibly sourced materials, but can also be machine washed – cutting down on waste and encouraging re-use year after year.”
