GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainability in Candy Making for More Halloween Treats

Title:
Sustainability in Candy Making for More Halloween Treats

Abstract:
Do you know how much water it takes to make a piece of Halloween candy? Producing just one bar of chocolate requires 317 gallons of water. Fortune estimates Americans will spend $2.6 billion on Halloween candy -- that equates to a hefty amount of water for manufacturing. In order to sustain limited water resources, candy and snack manufacturers across the world are assessing their water footprint and implementing water conservation strategies -- some of which even include water reuse.
