How to Recycle Pumpkins After the Holidays

Halloween and Thanksgiving are over, what are the best ideas on Earth for recycling pumpkins?


The Greatest list for Earth Saving Ideas to reduce and reuse pumpkins:
  • Eat them! Pumpkins are high in Vitamin E and A and Fiber so make a healthy Pumpkin recipe...Yum.
  • Eat the seeds, dry them. Another Yum!
  • Compost them in your garden compost
  • Give them away. Offer them to a neighbor or friend w a compost bin  (if you don't have one).
    Planet them.  Kids can watch them grow!
  • Bring them to a farm that has animals that eat them. Did you know cows & cattle love pumpkins? Do call or ask first if they accept them. 
  • Plant Them. Cut each top off, so that the pumpkin looks like a plant potFill it with dirt. Then watch the seeds grow into new pumpkin seedlings!
  • Recycle them! Every town is different so double check the rules.
  • Smash them! Bring them to a pumpkin smashing in your town
NOTE: Don't leave them to degrade outside if you don't want mice, moles, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits or woodchucks coming to your yard. They love them!

Thanks for being a Planetpal!
