Candy Buy Backs for Halloween

A fabulous concept that is growing in popularity as we become a more health conscious society are Candy Buyback stations at various businesses throughout your communities. After Halloween, companies are offering incentives for children to bring in their Halloween candy and sell it to them. Some offer money per pound of candy bought back. Others like Earth Fare are offering healthy grab and goodie bags that vary in size, depending on how much candy your child trades in. From dentists to local YMCA's, many companies are jumping on board as an effort to help promote healthier lifestyle choices. To find a local Candy Buyback station in your area, search online for one in your area or check out your local health foods store or YMCA to see if they have a program this year. If not, maybe encourage them to implement one for next year!
