  9. The consumer’s perspective Halloween is a $4.75 billion dollar industry celebrated by millions of Americans and even more worldwide. But the proliferation of interest in healthier and more sustainable holiday traditions, sparked by the Green Halloween initiative, has created unprecedented opportunities for companies such as yours to showcase their products as ideal holiday goodies – ones which kids will love and parents can feel good about. Some relevant statistics: • Over 70% of people give goodies to trick-or-treaters • Approximately 598 million pounds of candy is sold during the Halloween season, accounting for a total of 1.52 billion in sales • Over the past 5 years the sales of organic and all natural products have increased 18% to 25% year over year, even with downturn in economy • During the back-to-school season, more than 41% of those surveyed said they will seek out "green" products • 65% of U.S. consumers report they read nutritional information on food packaging more often than they did two years ago • Three-fourths of new moms and 65 percent of experienced moms say they actively seek out foods with nutrition benefits • Moms control 80% of the household spending decisions The phenomenal interest in Green Halloween over the past three seasons offers a clear indicator that consumer interest in all things green and healthy carries over to holidays. Moms, especially are seeking ways to keep their kids healthy, without “taking away” from holiday fun.
