Want to Help Your Children Make More Sustainable Choices this Halloween?

Did you know that nearly 600 million candy wrappers are sent to landfills each year from Halloween? Helping Ninjas is helping to sustain Indianapolis and reduce our waste through #TrickOrTrash, Rubicon’s new sustainable educational campaign for elementary and middle school students!

Consider opting not to throw the wrappers “away” and choose to collect your empty candy wrappers and recycle them!

Rubicon has partnered with TerraCycle to bring their Zero Waste Boxes to the hands of students, and at no cost — and Helping Ninjas in Indianapolis has joined the efforts!

If you or your child is interested in helping the Helping Ninjas by collecting candy wrappers for Rubicon’s #TrickOrTrash campaign, you can email: info@helpingninjas.com for more information.

Helping Ninjas (our family’s not-for-profit that was founded by my son Leo) had the idea to help empower youth in our city by collecting Halloween candy wrappers to be recycled — we need your help!

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 and TerraCycle, there is another option for our empty candy wrappers, it’s called a Zero Waste Box!

The candy wrappers are collected by youth in zero waste boxes courtesy of Rubicon and sent with a pre-paid shipping label to TerraCycle. 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.
