Newsflash from Portland:
 
Corey & Lynn on AM Northwest 

This morning Corey and Lynn did a segment on Greening Halloween with AM Northwest in Portland.

In it, they show how you (and your kids) can make your own trick-or-treat bag from a scarf!

The segment was especially fun because it was shot at Portland's Humane Society. (Corey is "mommy" to recently rescued mutt, Ivy.)

Green Halloween® is a grassroots, volunteer-run, not-for profit initiative to create healthier and more Earth-friendly holidays, starting with Halloween. Green Halloween began in the Seattle area in 2007 and in 2008 went nationwide, thanks to wide-spread media exposure (in the US and Canada), word-of-mouth marketing and online buzz, as well as the support and enthusiasm of families and businesses all over the country. This year we'll continue to expand our efforts from coast-to-coast in partnership with health, environment and arts-related businesses and organizations such as Dr. Oz's HealthCorps, EcoMom Alliance, Arts Action League and Treeswing - just to name a few.

Green Halloween is not a single event, but a one-of-a-kind, two-month push (September-October) to educate and inspire communities about three primary issues: health, the environment and community change. We also focus on creativity, family and fun.

Although Green Halloween takes an optimistic and positive viewpoint, we are motivated to ignite change because:

  • This generation of kids has a life expectancy that is shorter than their parents.
  • The EPA considers that 60% of all herbicides, 90% of all fungicides and 30% of all insecticides found in non-organically grown foods are carcinogenic.
  • Over 6,000 synthetic chemicals are used in the processed-food industry.
  • A 2004 study found that children's behavior measurably improved after a one week diet without preservatives and artificial colors and dramatically worsened on the weeks they were given preservatives and artificial colors.
  • Coco beans used for chocolate that are grown in full sun (as opposed to shade) are susceptible to disease and therefore require heavy doses of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
  • The chocolate industry has engaged in the use of child slaves and other unethical treatments of growers.
  • Store-bought costumes, makeup and accessories may contain phthalates, lead and other toxins.
