The magic trick or treat bag

The question, "What to carry the Halloween lot in?" fuels a multi-million dollar industry in plastic pumpkins and other "cute" plastic items that are costly to the planet from almost every aspect.

Unless your plastic carrier becomes an heirloom like the one that Corey's husband carried as a small child and her kids now do, sending these cuties to the landfill costs the Earth plenty.

Instead, let your creativity take over.

Who says a kid can't carry (depending on the costume):

What amazing, fun, creative idea can you and your kids come up with to carry the loot? Send us your pictures. We'd love to see.
