Neha’s eco-friendly Halloween costume:

My sister had an eco-friendly costume. It was a tootsie roll. Me and my mom made it for her. We used old, hard paper, tablecloths, and big white plastic bags. She liked it a lot. It didn’t cost a lot, because we reused things that we already had. My sister won first prize in a costume contest at Shinn Park! Me and my mom enjoyed making it for her.
