I’ve been wanting to write about a “green” topic for a while, and this month I couldn’t resist another rhyme, so I am featuring the Green Halloween! There are many green themes and ideas out there when it comes to Halloween.
You can recycle or make your own costume, you can reuse all of your decorations or decorate with nature, turn your Jack-o-Lanterns into compost after the holiday, etc. I’m all about simplicity, so for this Sweet Spot will just focus on the best part about Halloween (and let’s face it, I love a theme): the CANDY!
Lots of people worry about Halloween and it’s affect on our own or our children’s nutrition. The Natural Candy Store can help calm your worries. They sell thousands of natural candies that will satisfy your sweet tooth without the worry of trans fats and artificial sweeteners. If you’re into it, you can also find organic, vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free, feingold, kosher, corn-syrup free and Fair Trade candies too! That’s all way over my head, but I think that natural and organic is a good start.
Things have gotten much more colorful since the raisin alternatives of my childhood! Now you can have a healthier holiday and not disappoint the neighborhood kids! Happy Trick or Treating!
