Looking for creative ways to save energy this Halloween? How about hosting your own Energy Vampire Party? Check out a Kill-A-Watt meter from one of the local libraries in the Sno-Isle Library system or Everett libraries and spend an evening with friends hunting for household appliances that are wasting energy or using “vampire power.” Kids and adults can have fun counting CFLs in the home, looking for low-flow showerheads and hunting for small appliances, laptops and TVs that are using energy and aren’t in use. Party favors can include small giveaways like CFLs or LED nightlights. Maybe even have a grand prize winner who gets a string of LED holiday lights?!

And don’t limit your party to just the energy vampires! It’s Halloween so vampires are everywhere. Invite your guests to come dressed as vampires and serve bat shaped cookies and cupcakes with Dracula teeth marks in them. The ideas are limitless. This Halloween take a “bite” out of energy costs!
