Convert Your Unwanted Trick-or-Treat Candy Into Renewable Energy

By Charlene Arsenault, Patch Network.

UnReal, “the unjunked food company,” announced that it is hosting a Halloween candy trade-in, where families can drop off their excess or unwanted trick-or-treat candy to be converted into renewable energy – instead of tossing it in the trash. 

The event takes place on Nov. 2 from 3-6 p.m. at Whole Foods Market Newton, 916 Walnut St. 

Families can drop off their candy at a designated UnReal booth in-store. The unwanted candy will then be turned into energy using the Grind2EnergyTM system; an organics recovery process that converts food scraps into renewable energy like natural gas, electricity, and compressed natural gas and fertilizer. The Newton store is one of three Boston-area Whole Foods Markets participating in the Halloween trade-in event.
