Ecochic Meets EEeeeeek for Halloween!

"Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite, 
All are on their rounds tonight; 
In the wan moon's silver ray, 
Thrives their helter-skelter play" 
~ Joel Benton

A big shout out to all my Northern Hemisphere ecofashionistas who celebrate Halloween. While it's not traditionally a holiday that's recognised in Australia, I have to admit I do love the challenge of hunting down spooky ethical fashion and design treats!

1950s Halloween Party Cups from Salty Dog Vintage - If you prefer your Halloween parties to have a retro-flavour then these fabulous vintage cups are for you!
Men's Sloppy Joe Tee from Pini Piru - This disturbingly stylish 100% organic and fairly traded tee will take a man seamlessly from Halloween festivities to the pub

Golden Pumpkin Hand Cream by Ville De Fleurs -Perhaps your idea of the perfect Halloween is staying in and treating yourself to a pamper night? Well then this handmade vegan deliciousness for your hands will be a great companion! Made from organic and fair trade ingredients
(1) Organic Cotton Iguana Baby Hat and (2) Eco Felt Gray Wolf Mask by Soul Role - These super fun dress-up items are waaay cuter than mass-produced 'comes in a pack of 50 throw-away masks'. The adorable baby hat is made from organic cotton French terry fabric. The seriously cool wolf mask is crafted from an eco felt made from recycled plastic bottles!
Hanging Halloween Decorations by Molly Moo and Jessica too - These are the types of decorations that stay in a family for generations! I love the quirky charm of these gorgeous characters handcrafted from vintage blanket and other upcycled materials
Organic Chocolate Halloween Orange Bites by Sjaak's - These delicious dark chocolate and orange-filled vegan treats are a great size for those little monsters ringing your doorbell :)

Raven Necklace by Billy Would - Off to a chic party for Halloween? Wanting a look that's sophisticated with a nod to the macabre? Then don your fav ecochic little black dress and this frighteningly fabulous Raven necklace carefully crafted from recycled and reclaimed wood

Fair Trade Your Halloween Kit from Equal Exchange - One of the scariest things about Halloween is that most of the chocolate handed out on the night is connected with forced child labor! Keep your holiday fair with these ethical options
