Green Your Halloween – Day 9 – Candy Free Treats

October 9, 2010

Trick or treaters roam the streets for just one thing – Candy!  But, let’s face it – candy only lasts for a very short time, and many parents end up confiscating the goods once the kids get back home, anyway.  So why not hand out something that will last for more than just 5 seconds, without all the waste of individual candy packaging, too.

There are all kinds of non-candy treats you can hand out on Halloween and at Fall carnivals.  Stickers, pencils, whistles, small toys, etc. are all things that will amuse the kids without a sugar rush.

If you’re looking for something a little different to pass out to the kids, why not try these cool RECYCLED crayons.  Betcha didn’t know you could even recycle crayons, huh?! These fun favors come in all different shapes and sizes. Made with 100% recycled, non-toxic crayons, these eco-friendly favors are fun for hours of creativity long after Halloween is over.  Buy some online at Eco Party Time.

Looking for something for the older kids? How about these yummy lip balms made with real organic chocolate? It’s like getting candy for Halloween, but it will last for much, much longer.  Made with Dagoba Organic Chocolate, these Eco Lips lip balms are decadent and yummy and great for the Tween set.

There’s a lot of options available when it comes to Halloween party favors, so be creative!  Everyone knows that at this time of year, there’s too much candy being passed out.  Kids and parents alike will be thankful for something that will still be around on November 1.
