Safe and Healthy Halloween
Halloween is just around the corner, and many still need to buy Halloween candy. When doing so, think about its packaging. Is there excess wrapping? Is it plastic? Try to get a larger bag rather than many smaller bags, a bag that's filled up with more candy, or candy wrapped in foil or cardboard rather than plastic.
Along with protecting the environment, it's important to protect the health of yourself and others. With the pandemic, trick-or-treating will look different. Wear a protective face mask, bring hand sanitizer, don't take homemade goods, and attend a town-wide Trunk or Treat event if you'd like.
Be considerate about your treats and how you collect them, for you and the environment. Happy Halloween!
