Recycle Those Halloween Costumes at the NC Aquarium at Ft Fisher

Costumes and candy make for a sweet Halloween. Afterward, however, the clutter and litter haunt closets and landfills for years.
Wrap up this spooky season with the help of the N.C. Aquarium at Fort Fisher. Pass along the fun of a special outfit, remove unwanted items from your home and recycle. Donate gently-used costumes and empty candy wrappers to the Aquarium as part of our Green Halloween initiative.
The Aquarium will collect those ninja suits, princess dresses and all other spooky get-ups Nov. 1-30. Next fall, families can select new costumes from the donated items as part of a free costume exchange.
This initiative continues the Aquarium's work with Green Halloween, a community initiative focused on creating child- and Earth-friendly holiday traditions.
Another Halloween tradition, candy consumption, produces a scary amount of waste, with the potential to litter our waterways and oceans. Instead of trashing the empty wrappers, save them and drop them off at the Aquarium.
The Aquarium collects empty wrappers throughout the year and sends them to a recycling partner, TerraCycle, as part of our focus on conservation. TerraCycle creates recycling systems for hard-to-recycle waste, turning trash to treasure in the form of new products like park benches and backpacks. This partnership raises money for conservation efforts at the Aquarium.


Pleasure Island Fresh Market - The Place to Get Local Produce

Each week through December 3rd, the Pleasure Island Fresh Market is open from 8am - 1 pm at the Carolina Beach Marina.

The benefits of purchasing fresh local produce are numerous. Not only are they better for you, they leave money in the local economy and are better for the environment. By keeping big trucks off the highways less gas is used and emissions are reduced.

The best place to get local produce is at the Pleasure Island Fresh Market. With multiple vegetable vendors, you will be sure to find the freshest available produce around. The wide variety and selection of in season fruits and veggies will expand your menu selections. Be sure to ask about different recipes and ways to prepare the items you are buying. You just might discover a new favorite meal.

The market is easily accessible and offers plenty of parking for your car, bike or boat. The public marina offers free boat parking for all of you who decide to come by water as well as plenty of street parking for cars and bikes.

You can find a vendor list and map at www.pleasureislandfreshmarket.com, follow us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/PIFreshMarket, and check us out on Twitter at www.twitter.com/PINCmarket. For more information, contact the Fresh Market at 910.313.6005 or pleasureislandfreshmarket@gmail.com
