Halloween is just around the corner and if you’ve got any little ones in your life, you’re probably racking your brain for cute and clever Halloween costume ideas. If you’re on the verge of giving in to sheer desperation and contemplating holding your nose while buying a plastic Spongebob costume [1] — don’t fear — we have a greener solution for you in the form of Oeuf’s adorable knit animal outfits for kids [2]! These lovely mix-and-match knit pieces, made by Bolivian craftswomen, are not really costumes per se — more just cute dress-up separates — and that is precisely why they are such a great sustainable option for a green halloween. Kids will have fun wearing bear ears [3] or a racoon tail [4] any time of year, and these knit pieces are so adorable that you’ll want to encourage year-round dress up play.
