Disney is Making Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party an Eco-Friendly Event

Guests at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom are likely too busy enjoying the party to think about conservation and recycling.

But behind the scenes, the Magic Kingdom Environmental/Recycling team is hard at work to make the party "green."

Each year the Magic Kingdom Recycle Team works toward supporting Disney's corporate goals when it comes to environmental efforts.

Last year the team recycled 25,000 cardboard boxes and 500 pounds of shrinkwrap. They also saved boxes to store more than 3,000 pounds of scrap electronics. Other boxes repurposed from Monsters University were used in the annual Toys for Tots event.

"Our environmental successes and stories are a rich part of our history and a key focus of our growth," said Lawrence Whiteside of Magic Kingdom Environmental/Recycling. "We not only recycle on stage but, through a collaborative effort, recycling happens backstage to reduce waste and our carbon footprint."

The Recycle Team has been promoting the corporate environmental efforts for the past 13 years.

This is pretty cool, and I always love hearing about what Disney is doing to be more sustainable.
