Puget Sound mom Corey Colwell-Lipson began a movement in 2007 called Green Halloween. Her desire came from wanting healthier, safer, and more ecologically friendly ways to celebrate Halloween. She quickly had Whole Foods, Overlake Hospital and ParentMap magazine on board with her, she trademarked her logo, and was off and running. Within a year, the Green Halloween movement had become a non-profit, grassroots community initiative, and had spread to other states. What Green Halloween wants to do is help parents make wise choices for their kids come that ever popular, dress up and candy day on October 31.
This year, you can take part in a few local events to make your Halloween greener. National Costume Swap Day is on Saturday, October 8! A great way to re-use and recycle costumes! There are many costume swap events going on around the Sound. From Issaquah to Vashon Island, from Seattle to Federal Way, click HERE to find out how you can participate in this inexpensive, easy way to make your kids happy, and your Halloween a little more green.
