There are lots of ways to make Halloween a little greener and healthier.....here are a few ideas.................
Check with your friends and exchange costumes....if they are like me they have a tub full of fun costumes they have worn
Give out non-food useful items like pencils, erasers, crayons, etc.
Use cloth bags for Trick or Treat Bags....they work much better than paper or plastic. Even a old pillow case is great.....let your child draw on the pillow case for the personal touch.
If you hand out food treats give Organic Raisins, fair trade chocolate or other organic
When having a party serve local organically grown veggies and fruit.
Use hollowed out pumpkins for bowls! Kids LOVE IT!

Decorate your home using natural items....straw - sticks - pumpkins - gourds plus recycle items for decorations...give a old bed sheet new life as a ghost in a tree.
