Eco-Activity #175: Host a post-Halloween clean up!

17

Halloween is amazing; you get to go trick-or-treating, eat candy, and dress up in super cool costumes, who wouldn’t love it? If you trick-or-treat with a pillowcase, did you know that it can hold around 1600 pieces of candy? That’s a LOT of candy. While all that candy sounds delicious to us, after Halloween, some of these candy wrappers and other Halloween decorations can find their way into our streets, parks, and wild areas. For today’s eco-activity, we’re going to get prepared to properly throw away all the escaped halloween wrappers by organizing a post-Halloween clean up!

Instructions: 

1. Decide on when and where you’re going to be having 

your post-Halloween clean up. 

2. Fill out the Halloween Clean Up Email 

3. Email it to your friends, family, and/or neighbourhood with the supervision of your parent(s) or guardian(s). 

4. Don’t have someone’s email? Let them know when you see them!

  1. This is such a good idea but I don’t think I am up for it. I am so sorry. I am really busy and my family would not join me so sorry.

  2. Everyone I know doesn’t do things for Halloween. The candy is good though and we throw the wrappers away! We don’t have any decorations. We pick up stuff that we see on the ground.
