Trenton, N.J.— Today Colgate, Shoprite and TerraCycle announced this year’s Save Water Challenge that asks students, teachers, parents and community members to take the pledge to save water on behalf of their school for the opportunity to win one of three (3) recycled gardens made from recycled oral care waste.
Launched in partnership with the global oral care leader Colgate-Palmolive and regional retailer ShopRite, starting July 11, any public school, private school, college or university located in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut or Maryland that is enrolled in the TerraCycle network are eligible to enter for the opportunity to win a garden and outdoor furniture made from recycled toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and floss containers.
Through September 30, consumers can pledge to save water on behalf of a participating school once a day during the promotion. The top three (3) schools with the most pledges by the end of the contest period will win prize gardens. The grand prizewinner will receive an additional ribbon-cutting event.
All winners will be announced in October and the gardens will be installed in Spring 2022.
