Do you love our photos of kids in costume?
We do, too.
And they are all thanks to Holli Dunn, our photographer extraordinaire, who - from day one - jumped in to give the gifts of her time, talent and creativity to help us create the "look" of Green Halloween via her sweeter-than-candy images of kids in costume.
Want to get some cute picks of your wee-ones?
On October 17th and 24th, Holli will be hosting mini-sessions (think ahead for the winter holidays!) and she's offering a special for Green Halloween families: One free set (24) of Eco-matte* holiday cards with purchase of the session.
Contact Holli via her site for details: HolliDunn.com
*Eco-matte is 100% post consumer waste stock that is made using 100% wind generated electricity.
Interesting ECO facts:
Q: Which holiday food is wasted the least?
A: According to Robert Lilienfeld, the editor of The Use Less Stuff Report, "The most significant environmental opportunity we have other than fossil fuel reduction is food waste reduction. The environmental, economic, social and political impacts are enormous. The foods that's wasted the least, according to my co-author Bill Rathje (and director of The Garbage Project), is candy. So, from this perspective, Halloween is a rather sustainable holiday - except for the pumpkin waste."
Note from GH: Now that's an unexpected twist! Be sure to compost ALL food waste, food scraps, natural decor and uneaten candy. Learn how here.
