Make Halloween 2021 More Sustainable!

Did you know that each Halloween, 7 million tons of non-recyclable candy wrappers are thrown away? That’s a
huge amount of trash for a short-lived sugar coma! Sage Refill Market, an eco-friendly refill store and gift shop in
the 12South neighborhood (owned by a former Eakin, West End, and Hillsboro family), is offering a candy wrapper
recycling box this year. So keep those wrappers during the big candy binge, bag them up, and bring them in to
Sage to recycle them—for free. While you are there, you can shop for eco-friendly goods, and you’ll get a 10%
discount for bringing in your candy wrappers. It’s a win-win! Learn more at
