Multipurpose Trick-or-Treat bags.

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Looking for a bag that will bring pizzazz on Hallow’s Eve but don’t want to spend the money solely on one that you’ll use just for one occasion? Check out the wide selection of reusable totes available from ChicoBag. If you want to get festive, they have one specifically designed for Halloween as well!

Another option would be the delectable FEED trick-or-treat bag with a pumpkin motif. FEED bags are sturdy and stylish at the same time making it the perfect bag for various uses.

Although these reusable bags do cost more than…say your average plastic bag but keep in mind that they are reusable and will definitely save you money in the long run!

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.

Cool Green Halloween idea: Trick-or-Treat for TREES!

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

I just received an exciting e-mail from iMa, the founder of a non-profit called Seeing the Earth.

She’s come up with an eek-o-fabulous “treat” idea that your kids and your Mother (Earth) will love: TREES!

Here is how it works:

Adults buy “tree coupons” (bundles of 50 for $6 at .10 a piece) and give away to trick-or-treaters in addition to or instead of conventional treats. For each bundle sold, 50 trees are planted.

Isn’t that sweet?

Here is what the coupon looks like:
