Looking for new eco-friendly shops?

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

I love finding new shops on the internet. It’s actually a full-time hobby of mine. So I thought to myself, why not share these with Green Halloween’s wonderful viewers?! These shops are all fabulous and not to mention carry eco-friendly, GREEN merchandise. What more can you ask for in a shop? Even better, some of the stores mentioned below sell Green Halloween® authorized gear!

Like the above banner mentioned, Ecomom® is partnering with Green Halloween® in selling costumes and other Halloween goodies on their website. If you’re still looking for costumes, we highly recommend heading over there and browse their wonderful selections!


According to Oeuf‘s website, the company “has believed in designing products that offer real value to consumers without ever compromising on quality, of the highest order” ad they were around before the green and eco movements became trendy. Their items reflect on their solid philosophy and not to mention, extremely extremely adorable and pleasing on the eyes!

Recycling is Cool

Recycling is Cool carries Green Halloween merchandise and is helping to spread the word of greening up your holidays! While you’re there check out their other store sections as well to find great green products.

Heads or tails? Eco-fab costume accessories that let kids go wild

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009


Oeuf is one of our favorite companies. Creating simple, sustainable, use-able products for house and home, Oeuf pleases people and planet for the holidays and every day.

They’re on our minds a lot these days; in fact we just raved about their new gorgeously green garlands on our Celebrate Green! blog.


But since this is a Halloween blog, and you’re here to gather pointers for making yours a green holiday, we’ll try to curb our enthusiasm and stick to the point: Oeuf’s mask and tail accessories rock.

Not only are they made from soft, safe, sustainable alpaca, they’re knitted in Bolivia by people earning living wages. All this and more is why you will love them.

But what about the kiddos?

Without so much as leotard and tights, pants and shirt or even a pillow case with holes for a head and arms, your little one will be transformed into a Wild Thing. (The kind that doesn’t have to go to bed without his supper.)

Which leads us to our last point: when it comes to costumes (and a whole lot of things, come to think of it), less can be more. (Does your child need to be enveloped in polyester buntings to look and feel like a real-life lion? No. And buying just the masks and tails allows your child to get creative with the in-between costume parts, too.)


Looking for something similar for your wee-wild-one?

Check out Oeuf’s animal hat and booties.


Are your kids not into the animals? Too old for the furry stuff? Check out these mean beanies, for Bat Boys and Bat Girls (slightly different styles). 100% alpaca and Fair Trade, but all your kids will care about is how to make their costume as cool as their hats.

Cool, green, Halloween picks: costumes

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

I recently came across a few Halloween items I thought you’d want to know about.

All are healthy and or/”green” and – unlike most off the rack costumes – will inspire creativity and endless use long past October 31st.

Organic cotton animal/bug -print tights. These adorable tights come in four themes: bumble-bee, ladybug, giraffe and zebra but best of all, they’re made of organic cotton! Up to 18 months. Found at

Animal tails and snouts – for simple, quick costume and months of dress up play. Why I love these even more? Their made Fair Trade (of Alpaca wool) by women in Bolivia.

Halloween costume templates from BoxWorks is an innovative new company inspiring kids to see more than just trash when they look at used cardboard boxes. Although more templates will be added to the site soon, for this Halloween, check out their Robot Costume ($4) (as well as the Halloween Candy Bag and Luminary – FREE when you use the code GREEN at check out).

Have hot tips, great finds or to DIY for crafts? We’d love to hear about ‘em.
