Morrisons have announced they are launching a full reusable Halloween costume range for children. The supermarket hope it will allow for more sustainability around Halloween.

The costumes are made from 100% responsibly sourced materials and recycled polyester from plastic bottles.

Research has revealed thousands of Halloween costumes end up in landfill each year after being worn once and thrown away. These costumes are largely made from plastic based materials, adding to plastic waste.

The move means all new costumes within the range will be machine washable for the first time enabling customers to re-use and pass on costumes and eliminating the need for single-use purchases.

Morrisons have also removed all plastic hangers from the range, replacing them with carboard versions.

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.”

Morrisons Halloween costumes are available from the majority of Morrisons stores from Monday October 4.
