Aaaaaaagh! Click through the gallery to take a gander at some Portland business leaders' most vivid "Sustainability Nightmares," all of which also play out during their waking hours.

Boo! Shriek! Scream!

In celebration of what those in the olden days called All Hallow's Eve, we asked business leaders to offer up every-day instances related to sustainability matters that scare the living daylights out of them.

Sustainability Nightmares: Oregon business leaders share their haunting stories

These "Sustainability Nightmares," which apply to both home and work settings, include:

Finding large volumes of unclaimed documents atop the office printer.

Eaters who order their grub in compostable take-out containers, eat their food in the restaurant and then toss the containers in a landfill bin.

Wasteful holiday decorations made of chemical-laden materials for such occasions as ... Halloween.
