Going green is a scream for Halloween!

Shoppers encouraged to try Revolve for second hand fancy dress outfits

23 Oct 19

Scots shoppers are being urged to try second hand first as they look for the right outfit to make it all ‘fright’ on the night for Halloween this year.

Whether it’s witches, ghosts, ghouls or superheroes, Revolve second hand stores are packed in the run up to fright night with a range of pre-loved costumes.

What’s more, they also have racks of unique clothing that could be easily turned into a one-of-a-kind homemade costume, perfect for that fancy dress competition or big night out.

Buying Halloween costumes from a Revolve certified store is not only environmentally friendly, it also offers incredible savings while supporting local social enterprises and good causes.

Shoppers in Glasgow can find a great range of children’s outfits for Halloween at Merry-go-round, on Nithsdale Road or The Magpie’s Nest in Govan.

Catherine Bozec, Consumer Campaigns Manager, Zero Waste Scotland, said: “Kitting out the whole family for Halloween can be a scary prospect, but buying your items from Revolve certified stores means you can save money and still have all the fun of putting an amazing costume together. 

“By shopping Revolve and not buying new people are doing their bit to save the planet whilst supporting local organisations that make a positive social impact in the community.”

If you’re looking for something unique to add to your costume, or you’re feeling creative, Revolve stores have plenty of items to help you to put together your own ensemble. Spooktacular!

Shopping at Revolve certified stores means that items have been checked for quality, safety and cleanliness against Scotland’s re-use quality standard Revolve, which is awarded by Zero Waste Scotland. There are over 140 Revolve certified stored in Scotland, selling a variety of items from children’s clothes to furniture.

Thousands of re-usable items needlessly end up in landfill in Scotland each year. By choosing to buy from re-use stores, valuable products and materials can be repurposed and used for longer – saving money, supporting local communities, and protecting the environment in the process.
