My favorite holiday is coming up and I want to start sharing ideas for making Halloween greener. Like many holidays there is a lot of not so eco-friendly aspects to Halloween. The typical store bought decorations are some of the worst eco offenders. Have you ever read any of the packages, especially the lights? We worry so much about lead in our kids toys, lunch boxes, pet toys and paint, but what about all the lead in our holiday decorations. Seriously, read the labels. It’s quite frightening. I plan on writing some emails this year to companies that sell and make these items. I would encourage you to do the same. If companies start hearing from their customers complaints about lead content, they will listen.
