* Happy HalloGREEN! *
From us to you,
may your Halloween be
Thank you for your incredible support, inspired ideas and passion for people & planet!
With your invaluable help, Green Halloween® has grown from a one-town program (Seattle) to a cross-country phenomenon; and in just four Halloweens!
This year, over 25 states officially participated in Green Halloween. This includes events in 50+ zoos and aquariums at Whole Foods Markets
, public parks and more.
We also launched the first-ever National Costume Swap Day
, which - in two short weeks, involved 75+ swaps in the U.S. and Canada and a feature on Good Morning America
! Looks like next year, we'll need to re-brand as International
Costume Swap Day!
We look forward to hearing all about your Halloween celebrations and to seeing your photos and videos, too.
Here's to happy, healthy Halloweens for years to come!

About Green Halloween
Green Halloween® is a non-profit, community initiative to create healthier and more sustainable holidays, starting with Halloween. Green Halloween began in the Seattle area in 2007, and in 2008 went nationwide, thanks to wide-spread media exposure, word-of-mouth marketing and online buzz, as well as the support and enthusiasm of schools, families and businesses all over the country.
Funded by sponsorship and fueled by volunteers, Green Halloween is a national program of EcoMom® Alliance, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, in partnership with The Green Year®, LLC.
