June 13, 2011 - PRLog -- un 13, 2011 – June 13, 2011: Due to over-commercialization, Halloween has become a contributing factor in landfill pollution as well as for the growing number of childhood obesity cases, a leading health concern for medical professionals. “Each year approximately 6,250 tons of Halloween costumes end up in landfills – that's equal to the weight of 2,500 mid-sized cars!” says Corey Colwell-Lipson, the creator of the website Green  and Whole Foods Market-West Los Angeles will aim to reverse these alarming trends by sponsoring a festival offering healthy snack alternatives; gently used costumes, clothing and accessories that will be available to swap – as well as a recycable costume contest; crafty how-to demos; Green substainable living information; and exciting educational pirate lore that kids and adults will love. No matter how eco-conscious you are, this festival will offer everything you need for a Greener Halloween. Kids of all ages are encouraged to attend!

Halloween is a lot of fun for both kids and adults. But it's also a parent's and landfill's worst nightmare, too. Halloween is the favorite holiday for big kids and children, and it's quickly becoming healthier and planet-friendly. Costume Swap Days are held across the U.S.; last year, over 80 American and Canadian cities held Costume Swap Day events. Now it's our turn to shine! Providing financially affordable healthy food and snack options is not impossible. We aim to get the word out that costume and treat alternatives do indeed exist.
