BELLEVUE, WA. (September 17, 2008) - Bellevue, WA. based Crayons, Inc., an all-natural beverage company, announces its sponsorship of Green Halloween® 2008. Hosted by Treeswing, Green Halloween is a non-profit, grassroots community initiative dedicated to creating healthier and more Earth-friendly holidays.

Treeswing is a 501(c) 3 committed to improving the lives of children through nutrition, exercise and healthy environments. Together, these organizations are making healthy holidays easier and better for the planet.

"We are thrilled to sponsor Green Halloween 2008," said Ron Lloyd, CEO of Crayons, Inc. "Everyone in our Company is committed to providing nutritionally superior beverages for children and to helping out the environment with our recyclable aluminum can packages - so supporting Green Halloween was a natural decision for us. We look forward to seeing cans that we know will be recycled, at each venue, rather than straws, boxes or pouches that are rarely recycled."

Crayons, Inc. will provide Green Halloween 2008 with more than 15,000 recyclable cans of Crayons® new All Natural Sports Drinks for events in Seattle, Los Angeles and Phoenix as part of their overall support of the partnership. Locally, in Western Washington, Crayons® will provide beverages at more than fifteen events including the Green Edmonds Festival, Issaquah Days, and the Woodland Park Zoo Pumpkin Prowl.
