Did you know every year an estimated 600 million pounds of candy is bought in the US for Halloween? If you know me you know that I’m very much here for the sugar, but not so much the packaging.
There are a few things you can do to try and minimize the amount of plastic in the candy you give out, but if you’ve got trick-or-treaters at home then you know you will inevitably end up with a mountain of candy wrappers as your little ones eat through their stash.
The question then becomes: “If I don’t want to create waste what can I do with these wrappers?” The good news is there are recycling solutions for candy wrappers!
If you've been workin on reducing your waste for a while now, you've probably seen the amount of waste in your trash can decrease, but seen more and more things making their way into your recycling bin. Wouldn't it be awesome if there were a day dedicated to celebrating the impact and importance of recycling?
