How the time flies. It was two years ago that Peterborough, Northumberland and Lakeridge Kids first published my "Green Halloween" article, with tips for celebrating the holiday without harming the environment.
As for tangible goodies over edible treats...the jury's still out on this one. Obviously there are downsides to junk food, but as a clutter-phobe, I'm not sure we need any more stickers, erasers, etc. around the house...and once November 1st hits, anything Halloween-themed goes away. (Okay, fine, I also want the kids to bring home candy because they're still young enough that I can steal some. I said it!)
Check out the article, and try to find even one tip you can use as your goal for this year's Halloween.
