Style and Substance: FEED Trick-or-Treat bags


To commemorate the 60th anniversary of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, FEED Projects designed an alternate version of their signature burlap FEED bag -- the 2010 FEED Trick-or-Treat bag. Seriously charming, isn't it?

I guess most everyone is familiar with FEED Projects' natural burlap and cotton bags created by Lauren Bush to benefit the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). The original, inspired by the simple and straightforward aesthetic of the bags of food distributed globally by WFP, was created in 2006. (More recently, FEED Projects also teamed with The Gap to make FEED USA denim bags benefiting school meal programs in the U.S. )


The Halloween bags, retailing for $13.20, are the result of a new partnership between HSN, FEED and UNICEF. Profits from sales of FEED trick-or-treat bags purchased through hsn.com/hsncares will be donated to UNICEF, helping children under the age of five with a high malnutrition risk.

I'll definitely visit HSN on Tuesday, September 14th to see the Jack-o-Lantern bags' big debut.

OMGosh.... seriously cute! I love these Halloween feed bags. My kids are 13 and 15 now and trick or treating is starting to become a thing that they aren't sure if they should still partake in! lol... But, if they want to... I'd definitely get these bags for them! Thanks!

Becky,

One thing that's cool about these bags, to me, is that even adults can use them! But I know what you mean; I have a teen nephew :)

What a great concept! So cute, yet helps a good cause. And they can be used over and over again!
