In the latest episode of Ours To Protect, Orla and her daughter Hannah meet Joanne Denton from Sew Fun Studios in Wexford Town. Sew Fun Studios, a hub for sewing enthusiasts led by expert Joanne Denton, promotes accessible sewing skills and champions green Halloween costumes through upcycling. This reflects a broader trend of embracing sustainability in festive seasons. The studio offers workshops for all skill levels, building a community of environmentally conscious creators.

In Abbeyside, County Waterford, the Tournore Court Resident's Association launched a reware and rescare initiative. They've set up a pop-up shop in Dungarvan library, offering pre-loved Halloween costumes, and introduced party kits for rent, complete with reusable party wear. Kira Conway, a representative from the association, emphasized the significance of these initiatives, stating: "These are all little steps that we can take to play our part in terms of trying to combat carbon emissions." Halloween constitutes a significant economic activity—in 2017, Irish consumers spent a total of 65 million euros on Halloween festivities.
