Announcing the NEW Green Halloween® Marketplace on!

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

by Corey

We’re over the (full) moon! Excited to present to you the brand-new Green Halloween® Marketplace on the one-and-only!

Not only are we thrilled to help the greening of Halloween becoming easier for parents seeking safe, sustainable alternatives to conventional Halloween products, we’re so very grateful (and proud!) to be EcoMom’s non-profit beneficiary partner. (15% of sales will support the Green Halloween initiative!).

Here’s some of the eek-o-fab items you’ll find:

2011 limited edition Green Halloween ChicoBag

Designed by the 13-year-old winner of last year’s design contest. (Your child can enter to have his/her drawing selected for next year’s bag! Info here). Resusable (and washable!) year after year; a new Halloween tradition for your child. p.s. If the bags show as out of stock – not to fear. New bags are on the way!

All-new, Mineral Based Face Paints from Terrafirma

You may have read Campaign for Safe Cosmetic’s 2009 report in which 10 of 10 brands of face paints tested contained lead, a powerful neurotoxin. Since up to 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into the body, lead in face-paints is a definite concern for many parents. That’s why we’ve partnered with Terrafirma to create the very first line of lead-free face paints that are bold and vibrant enough for your lions, tigers and bears. {Oh my!}

Eye-Ball (organic) Cookies by Beautiful Sweets

We just love these  adorably-eco, not too scary treats. Just perfect for edible decor. Kids love e’m, Mama Earth approved. We’d say the eyes have it this Halloween.

100% Silk Mermaid Costume by Sarah’s Silks

Costumes made with petroleum products (i.e. polyester and PVC/vinyl) may contain toxic chemicals such as BPA, lead and pthalates. 100% natural materials make for a safer Halloween and year ’round dress up.

Green Halloween® is a nationwide non-profit initiative started by mother-daughter team Corey Colwell-Lipson and Lynn Colwell. In 2010, Green Halloween became a program of EcoMom® Alliance and has events in cities across the U.S.
