Green Your Halloween: Trick or Treat!
On Oct. 31, we hope that you'll be out roaming parties, pumpkin patches, and haunted houses, all the while munching on (or handing out) plenty o’candy. It can all leave a frightful mess — but it doesn’t have to. This week’s tips will help you ensure that Nov. 1 isn’t a scarier day for the Earth than the one that preceded it.
Tip #1: Think Through Trick-or-Treating
Trick-or-treating is the best part of Halloween! But it can get even better. When choosing what to hand out this year, opt for minimally packaged goodies, and sweets that are organic or vegan (we promise, the kiddies will enjoy ‘em just as much). If you’re taking little ones out, consider encouraging them to trick-or-treat for a cause, such as UNICEF’s well-known campaign. You can also help them collect dry goods for a local food bank or spare change for a favorite charity.
Tip #2: Swap Costumes
Tip #3: Be the (After)Life of the Party
Tip #4: Bag the Waste
