A fun, safe, not-so-scary, Halloween experience for your kids! 

Featuring candy chosen due to the manufacturers' attention to conservation, specifically related to palm oil.  Unsustainable palm oil harvesting is one of the biggest threats to Malayan tiger, and numerous other endangered species in SE Asia and Indonesia.  You can choose RSPO certified candy for your own Halloween celebrations by checking this guide provided to zoos across the country by Cheyenne Mountian Zoo in Colorado.
