Hosting an eco-friendly Halloween party doesn’t require a superhero but it helps. Dress up as the Green Hornet and invite your superhero friends to lead the way in celebrating Halloween and saving the planet. These are tips for planning a Green Hornet Halloween party.
Invite Your Superhero Friends to your Eco-Friendly Halloween Party:
Maybe it’s a sign of the environmental crisis, but the greenest of superheroes is making a comeback. Sony is releasing a movie version of The Green Hornet in 2011 with Cameron Diaz and Seth Rogen. Get ahead of the trend by sending paper-free email invitations to your eco-friendly Halloween bash. Thanks to The Green Hornet movie, you can add some clips and a soundtrack to your invitation. Tell your friends that we can’t all be the Green Hornet, but everyone should come dressed as an environmental superhero like Bat-Friendly Man or Leafblower Busters.
Serve Supersized Local and Organic Food:
Actually supersizing causes a lot of waste and obesity. Put the emphasis on quality over quantity and serve super-good foods made with local and organic produce and other ingredients but no meat. You can make a main course out of a hearty butternut squash and white bean soup. Bake a pan of brownies. Instead of creating a lot of garbage with individual bottles, serve pitchers of water and two versions of punch so people have alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Use any punch recipe you like because they’ll all be perfect for a Halloween party once you add the severed hand decoration below.
Green Hornet and Other Eco-Friendly Decorations:
Float a severed hand in your punch bowls. Just fill a rubber glove with water, tie the bottom with a rubber band and freeze it. Peel the glove off when you’re ready to serve. To keep the rest of your Halloween party decorations eco-friendly, use your TV screen as a backdrop. You can play clips from The Green Hornet movie and other Halloween or superhero programs. Play scary music along with Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblee.
Eco-Friendly Halloween Party Transportation:
Transportation is one area where many superheroes and ordinary citizens are falling down on the job. Even the Green Hornet has a gas guzzling car called Black Beauty. Encourage everyone to avoid single passenger cars when coming to your party. You can include ridesharing and public transportation information in your invitations. A real Green Hornet would want it that way for any eco-friendly Halloween party.
