As Halloween draws ever closer, prospective trick-or-treaters are beginning to rev their little engines. However, in the wake of all that is going on this year, trick-or-treating, and Halloween itself, will take place much differently this year in some areas of the country. Some regions may see a traditional celebration, others may see things limited to a contact-free "trunk-or-treat" style holiday, while still other regions will experience more strict measures which will result in in-home Halloween celebrations.

Whatever the case may be, the fun and good times don't have to stop. 4AllPromos has the definitive list to all of the best wholesale Halloween candy bags, all of which we'll share with you in just a moment. Once we've finished doing that, we'll also share some safety tips to make this Halloween fun and safe for all involved. Remember, these are eco-friendly trick-or-treating bags, so they focus on keeping the environment safe as well.

1. Pumpkins Recyclable Halloween Bag | Custom Eco-Friendly Halloween Totes

It won't be a one-and-done Halloween for these guys. Each is orange in color with die cut handles near the top for easy holding and gripping.

Below the handles is a stock art message reading, "Happy Halloween". A large imprint area is beneath the inscription, which is then followed by a graphic featuring a group of Jack-O'Lanterns, each with their own unique and funny facial expression. The bags are a frosted orange color and are 12 inches wide by 15 inches high. A 3 inch side gusset is included to allow them to expand to fit more candy and treats.

Ten Tips to Make Halloween Healthy, Happy, and Safe for Everyone

Safety Tips & Suggestions to Make Halloween 2020 Safe & Happy

1. Be sure trick-or-treaters and the adults who accompany them wear their masks

No, we're not just talking about Halloween masks. Until the COVID situation is fully under control and (finally) a thing of the past, it's best to always wear a face mask while venturing out into public when contact with others is expected.

2. Talk safety with the kids

Many of the Halloween bags we've mentioned in this article contain safety tips. It's a great idea for parents, teachers, and any other available adults to read these to the children in their lives. Of course, there are some tips that won't be covered on every bag. Be sure to issue all the safety warnings you can think of, as one can never be too careful.

3. Having Halloween at home

If you happen to live in an area where trick-or-treating is not being permitted in 2020, it doesn't have to be a total loss. There are plenty of ways to have a fun Halloween at home. Hiding candy and other treats around the house and yard before the kids get home is a creative and rewarding way to make sure they still get their Halloween fun. Best of all, parents can be sure that the candy is safe, as they'll be supplying it themselves. Just be certain not to leave candy and wrappers out in places where animals can eat them and potentially become ill from the sweets or injured by the wrappers.

4. Ensure all trick-or-treaters are visible

A great way of achieving this end is to have all in-charge adults carry flashlights or lanterns when escorting their trick-or-treating entourage. Another handy device for maintaining visibility is reflective material, found on many costumes, jackets, and even on several of the Halloween bags we sell.

5. Make sure kids have an adult escort

Older candy seekers may grouse a bit, but they'll thank their parents later on for helping to keep them safe in such uncertain times. Though many neighborhoods are perfectly safe with nothing to worry about in terms of violence or other threats, it never hurts to add an ounce of prevention.

6. Costumes that extend below ankle-level are a NO

No children should wear costumes that reach below the ankle. This is because it prevents a tripping hazard. This can be dangerous when walking on hard, paved surfaces and even when traversing across lawns. Plus, if the costumes don't hang to or near the ground, the risk of others accidentally stepping on and ripping them can be wiped out.

7. Check all candy before consumption

Kids who go out to trick-or-treat always hate this one, but it's better they wait a few minutes to dive into their haul so an adult can check their treats for potential hazards. Again, in the vast majority of cases, there will be nothing to worry about. However, we're still going with the theme of "better safe than sorry".

8. Don't travel to unfamiliar neighborhoods for candy

It's best to stay close to home, receiving treats only from people known well to the family. In addition to avoiding stranger danger, enforcing this policy helps to keep trick-or-treaters from getting lost or from walking into high-traffic areas with fast-moving vehicles.

9. Keep out of the road when possible

Sidewalks, crosswalks, brick paths, and grassy areas are your friend. Avoid motor vehicle traffic, particularly in areas where drivers may have trouble seeing pedestrians in the dark. When there's a safe and legal alternative to the road, those traveling on foot should take it, regardless of age.

10. Make sure costumes allow their inhabitants to see clearly

Costume masks with small or no eye holes can be a true danger. Trick-or-treating rarely happens without some degree of noise, so it's easy for a child who can't see clearly to not notice oncoming traffic, be it cars, bikes, or other gallovanting kids on a sugar high. As important as it is for kids to be visible, it's also crucial for other people and objects to be visible to them.
