Save the Planet: Trick or Treat Happy HallowGREEN Style

Save the planet this Halloween and go green. Here are some tips:

  • Use reusable bags or other containers. Canvas or cloth bags and pillowcases are eco-friendly and can easily be decorated with spooky images.
  • Treat the little ghosts and goblins who visit your neighborhood with goodies that are healthy and wholesome, such as bite-sized, all natural Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies and Bunny Grahams snacks. Trans and saturated fat-free, Annie’s bunnies are made with organic whole wheat flour and available in 1 oz. snack pack sizes – the perfect alternative to traditional Halloween goodies.
  • Make your own costume by being creative and reusing clothing you already have, or swap costumes from last year with your friends.
  • Keep it clean. Teach your children not to toss candy wrappers on the street as they trick or treat. Bring an extra bag to pick up litter along the way.
  • Walk, take public transportation or carpool to parties and trick-or-treat close to home. This will reduce fuel consumption and air pollution.
  • Throw a HalloGreen party with organic pumpkins for carving and organic apples for bobbing. When the party is over, use them for delicious seasonal pies and soups. Another smart idea is to use recyclable or reusable dishes, cutlery, napkins, tablecloths and decorations.

Boo! Enjoy.

  1. Homemade Halloween costumes were the norm when I was a kid. I’ll never forget wearing this big, old full-length fur coat (from a garage sale) with huge shoulder pads and a full-head gorilla mask.

    That was my “gorilla outfit” and it was a hit with the neighbors. Not to mention that it also kept me warm, back in the day when October was cold (It is currently an unbelievable 70 degrees here in Ohio — unheard of!)
