- Replace candy treats with non-food treasures (homemade bracelets, pencils, stickers, cool looking pebbles decorated as eyeballs, interesting knick knacks, mini pumpkins, hair accessories, dried mini-floral bouquets bundles, bouncy balls, acorn or monkey ball crafts
- Instead of buying costumes - create your own from stuff around the house or swap with neighbors and family members, there are lots of great ideas online
- Have a neighborhood celebration in the community garden - you could encourage everyone to bring some homemade baked goodies for a harvest tasting
- Hand out fair trade goodies in place of non-fair traded chocolates, include with tags that promote and educate on fair trade
- Avoid non-toxic face paints
So whether you celebrate Halloween or Harvest Days, there are lots of fun, green options to do so in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
