Where in the World is Corey? (She returns with a sweet gift for you)

Friday, January 16th, 2009

Okay, so it’s January.

The truth is, time got away from me.

The whirlwind of Green Halloween didn’t end with the beginning of November and needless to say, it’s still going!

But here’s the good news: my New Year’s pledge is to keep you in-the-loop with the latest and greatest tips, tricks, updates and ideas – but there’s a twist. From February through August, I’ll be blogging on our parent site,

Be sure to visit us there for everything you need to know (and a few things you just might want to know) on greening up all of your holidays and special occasions.

To sweeten the deal, I have a very special gift for you: Right now, Green Halloween’s newsletter subscribers can receive one copy of our book, Celebrate Green! at 40% off.

Want more? When you purchase your copy you’ll receive a cool ChicoBag for FREE.

And here’s the icing on the already sweet cake. Our books are sold with the option of having a tree planted for $1 through EcoLibris. When you do, you’ll get a nifty sticker to place in a special spot on the back of your book. (Celebrate Green! is printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled, FSC certified paper, but we think tree planting is a good idea, don’t you?)

Interested? Sign up for the Green Halloween newsletter today (top of the homepage) and receive the secret link in an upcoming edition.

Signing off (until August) or should I say, “signing over” -

The first word that comes to mind is: WOW.

The second word is THANK YOU.

(Okay, that’s two words, but who’s counting?)

Green Halloween 2008 was amazing. Thanks to you.

From coast-to-cast parents, neighborhoods, schools, organizations, businesses and even entire cities, came together to give Halloween a healthier, more sustainable makeover. Because of your passion, your support, your willingness to share your ideas and your willingness to try something new, Green Halloween was even bigger and better than we could ever imagine. (Did we already mention that we think you rock?)

It’s hard to calculate just how many people took part in year two, but here are a few stats I think you’ll be excited about:

  • 14,500 – The number of unique visitors on Green Halloween’s website in the week before Halloween.
  • 37, 500 –  The number of unique visitors we welcomed on Green Halloween’s site during the official Green Halloween period from 9/1/08 – 11/15/08.
  • 100 + – The estimated number of websites and blogs that featured the Green Halloween initiative. Sites included Home & Garden Television (, Disney’s Ideal Bite, A Fresh Squeeze, Cool Mom Picks, Planet Green, Big Green Purse, EcoStilleto and Daily Candy. (If you wrote or blogged about Green Halloween, you’ve been elevated to saint status).

And the press was excited about us too. From a article in KIWI magazine to a cover story in the Seattle Times’‘ Sunday magazine to a mention on Access Hollywood to an interview on Martha Stewart Radio – we were able to mainstream our initiative in a big, big way. (For a list of all of our press, click here.)

Thank you for whatever you did to green your Halloween – whatever it was, know that you made a difference.

Your Mother (Earth) would be proud.
