Plastics have done a lot to help battle the coronavirus, making items such as medical equipment and personal protective equipment. Now it's time for something very important: using plastic for safe trick-or-treating.
"We have to save Halloween and it starts with you," says "Happy Harper" on her YouTube tutorial on a candy chute. (And sure, you could go to other places for a tutorial on how to turn a 10-foot plastic pipe into a candy delivery system, but wouldn't it be more fun to get the details from a kindergartener in a princess dress?)
Candy chutes, essentially, are a pipe or tube at least 6 feet in length, placed at an angle to allow candy to slide from one end to the other. Simply place a piece of candy at the top. A sign on the bottom of the pipe instructs trick-or-treaters where to place their bucket so the candy lands safely inside.
"See how easy this is?" Happy Harper tells us. "Let's put down two Kit Kats."
Good idea, Harper.
