Welcome to Green Halloween Philadelphia!
Green Halloween Philadelphia is a branch of Green Halloween® National which is a non-profit, grassroots initiative to create healthier and more Earth-friendly holidays.
It began in the Seattle area in 2007 with backers such as Whole Foods Market and was such a huge success that in 2008, the initiative went nation-wide. In cities across the country, volunteer coordinators are not only working to turn their city’s Halloween holiday healthy and eco-friendly, but they’re also raising money for their own, local non-profit beneficiaries.
Green = the 3 G’s
1. Good for People – Including the people who make, grow or sell the products we consume or use. Also good for us and our families. Healthy treats and treasures fall under this category.
2. Good for the Planet – Includes making choices that have the least impact on the Earth during the lifespan (beginning to end) of that choice or product.
3. Good for the Community – Including making choices and supporting businesses whose business practices and products support the well being of communities such as via monetary contributions to worthy causes.
