Have an Eek-O-Friendly Halloween

Back in the day, Halloween was different.  It was a time to create, be imaginative, and it was a low-budget holiday.  Back then, Halloween was green and it didn't even phase us.  It was fun.  

Now, almost $6 billion a year is spent on costumes, candy, decor and other accessories, most of which are made from unhealthy, unsustainable materials.  

It is time to get back to basics - having good clean fun!

Environmentally minded businesses are increasingly finding one another to join together and strengthen the message.  GreenHalloween is a non-profit, grassroots initiative striving to create healthier, eco-friendlier holidays - starting with Halloween. 


Here are some of their tips (to read all of their great tips and ideas, go to www.greenhalloween.org):

  • Apply the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) to all of your holiday choices: costumes, décor, goodies, etc. Of the 3 R’s, reducing is the best for the Earth.

  • Consider your costumes. The truth is, many store-bought costumes and accessories contain toxic chemicals that not only are a potential hazard to your child, but also to the environment and the people who helped to make them.

  • Trim your trick-or-treats. Hand out less ________ (fill in the blank). Preferably your goodies of choice are healthy and/or Earth-friendly, but even if they’re not, handing out just one is better for kids, better for the planet and better for your bank account.

  • Choose eek-o-décor. Say ‘no’ to disposables and instead, re-use or re-purpose items you already own. If you must use disposables, look for products that are reusable and recyclable items like Kids Konserve Party Pak 
     
  • Don’t drive to trick or treat.  Encourage your neighbors to go green and then go door-to-door near you. It’s good for you and the planet and builds community.

Kids Konserve wishes you all a safe, fun, and eek-o friendly Halloween!
