Halloween creates a terrifying amount of waste.

October 13, 2016

From decorations and costumes to excess food, the amount of stuff that goes into the bin each Halloween is truly frightening.

This year we are supporting Hubbubs #pumpkin rescue campaign because – well, the statistics speak for themselves:

  • ‘An estimated 10million pumpkins are grown in the UK every year – 95% will be carved into hollowed-out lanterns for Halloween and 5% will be used for soups, stews and pies.’
  • 18,000 tonnes of pumpkin thrown into landfill each year (enough to make 360 million portions of pumpkin pie!)

Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming #PumpkinRescue events on our What’s On pages soon!
