Three Eco-Friendly Pumpkin Carving Tips to Try This Year

Three Eco-Friendly Pumpkin Carving Tips to Try This Year

Here are three eco-friendly tips we used that you can try this year. 🎃

1. Solar Garden Lights
Cut a hole in the top or side of the pumpkin and insert a small solar garden light. They are less than a dollar each at Walmart or Target. A big plus is you never have to remember to light them! They will turn on automatically each night.
2. Use Vinegar to Make Them Last
Spray the inside of the pumpkin with a 1:10 vinegar-water solution to help them rot a bit slower. It is important to use vinegar instead of bleach since bleach is deadly to wildlife that may see your pumpkin as a snack.

3. Save Those Scraps
Don’t throw your pumpkin scraps in the trash! Instead take them outside to your compost pile, garden, or tree line. The scraps are a great treat for squirrels and deer.
