Learn more about the Forest Heroes Halloween Parties — which will also be in Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, and Lansing — after the jump.
On Saturday, October 26th, Michigan kids, parents and the Forest Heroes Campaign will come together for some Tiger Costume Parties. Kids dressed in tiger costumes, ears and tails will play tiger games and learn about the Sumatran tiger, which is being pushed to the brink of extinction.
The Tiger Costume Parties are the latest events asking Kellogg’s CEO John Bryant to end a joint partnership with Wilmar International, as long as the Asian agribusiness giant relies on palm oil from destroyed Sumatran tiger habitat. Over the past month, hundreds of Michiganders have asked Kellogg’s, “What Would Tony Say?”
The events will also feature information for parents about how to have a Tiger-Friendly Halloween – tips to handing out candy and treats that don’t contain deforestation-based palm oil. Parents will learn what candy does and does not contain palm oil – and whether some brands of candy are better than others.
A Tiger Costume Party! Kids in costumes, tiger tails and ears (provided free), tiger games, scary facts about palm oil and coloring books.
