In today’s episode we open a can of worms…how to organic-ize and eco-ize Halloween. Children have been going out for halloween for ages, collecting candy and spending weeks on end getting high on the sugar and crashing. Fun for the kids, but not so much for the parents and teachers. But today, more and more parents are spooked by the amount of money spent and the amount of frightening chemicals in the candy. So if you are looking to bury the old ways of halloween and celebrate in a new, sustainable spirit.
We hope you enjoy the show!

Each one is 33% maltodextrin, that’s really bad isn’t it? I can’t return them and they were so expensive I really don’t want to bin them but I don’t feel good about using them either?”
