Have a Green Halloween
|October 17, 2012||Filled under Uncategorized|
It’s almost Halloween time, 2nd most commercially successful holiday. There are many ways to have a greener Halloween, here are just a few ways.
Halloween candy sales average about 2 billion dollars annually in the United States. That’s a lot of candy and most of it is full of un-natural ingredients that can be harmful. The Natural Candy Store has some great options so be sure to check them out. The shipping deadlines will be here soon, so hurry and get your order in.
What about the candy your kids get while trick-or-treating? You can trade your kids there choice of natural candy, homemade goodies, or non-food items. Some dentists will also let kids trade candy for money. Another great option is reverse trick-or-treating. Visit Global Exchange for more info and to order a kit.
Etsy.com is one of my favorite places to get decorations. You can find a lot of great eco-friendly options and you are supporting the artists. You can also make DIY decorations using eco-friendly materials.
You can also find some great deals from EcoMom.
