With Autumn steadily approaching it’s time to get ready for one of my favourite times of the year, Halloween!
I’m going to share with you some of my top Tricks to help with a more eco-friendly approach to halloween this year; as well as some amazing plastic free plant-based Treats we have in store (which frankly are fantastic to enjoy all year round!)
Support local this Halloween!
Around 85% of halloween costumes end up in landfill each year so check out the fantastic local charity shops, we have some truly great ones on Blatchington Road and George Street. There can be some great finds in terms of costumes this time of year or maybe even get creative with repurposing items!
The whole ‘If You Care’ range we have in store is fab. There’s cup cake cases, pre-cut baking sheets, little snack bags and more. Swapping some of your staples to this range is an easy eco win; all the greaseproof paper used in these products is FSC sustainably source, unbleached & chlorine free, and certified home compostable!
Try out our new Pico Range!
Ditch the disposables with these reusable cake toppers and adorable reusable bunting; do good for the planet as well as supporting a local small buisness. The cute cake toppers are crafted from solid wood, and instantly elavate any cake to a spooky all hallows creation. The bunting is available in a range of designs all printed on thick durable paper, to be used and enjoyed year after year.
Use candles to add that perfect autumnal ambiance and spooky vibe!
We have a wide range of artisan scented candles available, including our new in Moxi eco-friendly soy wax & 100% vegan hand-poured candles. They’re available in three sizes with the large 3 wick candles giving an impressive 60-70 hours of burn time and all come in a range of enticing scents.
My go to for a cosy autumn evening would be Selene – named after the Goddess of the Moon. A blend of orchid, bergamot and vanilla is combined with woody notes of sandalwood and vetiver.
Roobydoobys sweets – These irresistable plant-based gummy sweets already have quite the fanbase in hove! Their fame is very well deserved, just ask any of the staff – we cant get enough of them.
If you know the sweets already you should also check out Rubydooby’s pink and white marshmallows and Rubydooby’s fudge – all vegan friendly too and delicious of course! Perfect popped into our ‘If You Care’ snack bags for little trick or treaters , just maybe keep some aside for yourself too!
More of a chocolate fan? We’ve got you covered with our white, milk, and dark chocolate buttons. Our white and milk are the Moo Free range, so they’re vegan, gluten Free, soya free, and palm oil free! Our dark chocolate buttons are made of organic, fair trade belgian 72% dark chocolate and oh so tasty.
We stock a whole range of baking ingredients. Plain flours, self raising, gluten free, and more. Cocoa powder, caster sugar, agave syrup. All those little extras, from Arrowroot to Xantham gum, including recently added corn starch flour. You can pick up the perfect amounts for your recipes, just what you need to bake some marvelous creations and why not top them of with one of our Pico cake toppers 😉
For more grab-able treats you’ll find all your favourite range of H!P chocolate bars and Caroboo bars. So many flavours to choose from, my favourite is the raspberry honeycomb crunch from Caroboo. They’re all so smooth and creamy and such a treat, and what’s even better is the 100% compostable packaging!
Hopefully this has given some Halloween eco inspiration to you all! We hope to see you in store soon, we’re open 7 days a week and if you do pop in to see us on halloween itself we’ll even have our own trick and treat basket on the go for the the little ones to get involved with!
