Trick Or Trash

Want to help your children make more sustainable choices this Halloween?

Helping Ninjas is participating in Rubicon Globals Trick Or Trash partnership National Wildlife Federationand supporting efforts to reduce waste with sustainable educational campaign for elementary and middle school students and families!

Rubicon  #TrickOrTrash campaign provides youth and families a means to recycle candy wrappers! Candy is collected and shipped back to TerraCycle in a custom designed recycling box, paid for by Rubicon, to be recycled. Candy wrappers are not recyclable at curbside and municipal recycling centers. TerraCycle will recycle or compost the fibers of the candy wrappers, avoiding the landfill altogether! Rubicon is also offering a lesson plan to educators to learn more about reducing waste and making sustainable choices: TrickOrTrash.com

Did you know that nearly 600 million candy wrappers are sent to landfills each year from Halloween?

Did you know in a landfill, some candy wrappers can take hundreds of years to decompose, some even thousands! Scary! What is even more startling is that there has not been any option for consumers to recycle candy wrappers in our country ever, until now! Thanks to Rubicon there is another option for our empty candy wrappers!
