We’re the kids from Jackman Avenue Public School, in Toronto. We need to tell you this… we LOVE HALLOWEEN! Parties! Costumes! Trick or treating! So much fun!!! Thank you for making so many yummy Halloween treats for us to enjoy!
Still, we have a problem. Halloween candy is usually packaged in wrappers and they’re creating LOTS of GARBAGE. And garbage is piling up in our landfill. It may not seem like a big deal, but it is! When our landfill is full, where are we going to put our candy wrappers and other garbage? The Earth is not happy about this. And neither are we. Read more to learn how to make the Earth your friend.
Here is an idea for you: Use paper boxes for your candy. Then we can recycle or compost the packaging. No garbage!!! Some companies are already packaging candy in paper boxes. Nestlé, for example, packages their Smarties in paper boxes. We think you should try it. Then everybody will have yummy, WASTE-FREE treats for Halloween. And we won’t worry about the landfill! A step in the right direction, don’t you think?
In closing, we just want to say thank you for considering our idea. We hope you agree with us and make a change in how you package your candies. Making less garbage is everyone’s responsibility. Next Halloween, we hope to find your delicious candies in boxes, not wrappers. And you will be the SUPER-HEROES of Halloween!
