Have you ever thought about making Halloween a fun way to discover healthier sweets? What about sustainable clothing? Even those of us that have fond memories remember the old days—when we trick-or-treated with friends through neighborhoods and ate so much candy it made us feel sick to our stomachs—you may find yourself being surprised or inspired about how more people are celebrating Halloween today and making green the new orange.
If you want to completely change the way you and your friends and family celebrate Halloween, stage an official “Green Halloween” party or organize a “Green Halloween” neighborhood bash. Check out all the activities and resources to have an official “Green Halloween” here. To find costumes that are made in the United States with some eco-friendly options check out Fairy Finery. There are also lots of non-toxic, natural paint options to really “dress up” your face like Luna Star, Pure Beauty and Good Earth Beauty. If you want to get a little wild with hair color Manic Panic has lots of neon colors that are vegan, non-toxic and not tested on animals.
There is nothing like feeling a little less guilty when eating and giving organic Halloween treats. You can find options at Whole Foods Market and Trader Joes or order online. Some popular companies include Annie’s Bunny Fruit Snacks, Unreal Candy, Yummy Earth, Surf Sweets, Indie Candy and Glee Gum. When you want to get a variety of treats in a one-stop shop, Natural Candy Store is the ultimate place to order dozens of organic candy brands online.
Have a Happy Halloween!
