Top Tips From Green Bloggers: How to Green your Halloween

This is a guest post compiled by Lynn Colwell and Corey Colwell-Lipson of Celebrate Green

Summer’s long over. School is back in session. And that means Halloween is knocking at your door.

We thought that in addition to reminding you to check out GreenHalloween for ideas, we’d pass on some tips from our fellow green bloggers.

1. From green blogger and independent crafter Becky Striepe, comes an idea for a simple Halloween scrap banner. And if you’re into banners, here’s a paper one we created last year.

2. Do you read Healthy Home magazine? If not, you should. You can get awesome ideas for all things healthy and green, like this BPA-free pumpkin puree that’s easier than pie to make.

3. Lots of parents today are opting out of masks and choosing face paints instead. But these can contain chemicals that you don’t want on your children’s skin. What to do? Make your own! You can check out our recipe here, and for more ideas, check out this article on Greenwala by Danika Carter, or this one from Diane MacEachern at Big Green Purse.

4. Great tips on avoiding GMO sugar this Halloween from My Healthy Green Family.

5. Emily Roach at Random Recycling loves roasting pumpkins seeds. Here’s her recipe.

6. From Robbie Schneider at Going Green Mamawhat to do with that mammoth Halloween stash.

7. The Smart Mama, Jennifer Taggart, suggests using tee tree oil to keep your carved Jack-o-lantern from molding. And Danika Carter, from Your Organic Life says adding those little silica gel packets works well too.

8. And finally, Tamara Rubin, writing for DrGreene.com, explains how to avoid exposing your kids to lead during Halloween festivities.

    Dehydration and exposure to heat can lead to
    a number of severe health risks in people and pets. Hence,
    a reasonable service warranty gets counted as an critical trait and top quality
    of a fantastic plumber. Plumbing problems may crop up every now and
    them, but when you have experienced plumbers to
    lend you a helping hand, these problems don’t like a problem any more.

  2. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to
    a famous blogger if you are not already ;) Cheers!

  5. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of
    it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Undeniably believe that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to
    have in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t recognise about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and defined
    out the entire thing with no need side-effects ,
    other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
    Thank you

    I love to walk, but when I first moved to Bangkok, Thailand, the incredible heat made me think I’d probably never go for a walk again. New tissues form
    along these microscopic tears, re-building and straighten your penis.
    Peyronie’s condition impacts 1 to 3% of the men’s
    population and it is regarded amongst the typical
    factors that cause shortening of male organ, male organ shape
    penile deformation and impotence problems.
