Toxic Costumes? Halloween Goes Green

Not really. Halloween wouldn't be Halloween, after all, if there weren't the staple colors of orange and black everywhere!

But, now your Halloween can be ³greener² thanks to some tips provided by Treehugger.

PVC and vinyl create toxins such as lead, cadmium, and phthalates. Yea, thanks but no thanks.

And if you read our post about how toxic make-up is, then you already know about how toxic these face paints really are. Some of the toxins you will find here include formaldehyde, lead, and other potential cancer-causing agents.

Treehugger suggests getting creative and finding things in your closet or the local thrift store that will turn your children into those Halloween ghouligans!

What about the make-up? Maybe try to make your own this year. Might be
fun. Read more about Green Halloween Costumes
