Pledging to Save Water Can Help Schools Win a Recycled Garden

Colgate, ShopRite and TerraCycle prepare to award two gardens made of recycled material.

TerraCycle announced the 2019 Save Water Challenge that asks school students, teachers and communities to take the pledge to save water on behalf of their school for a chance to win one of two recycled gardens made from recycled oral care waste.

Launched in partnership with the global oral care provider Colgate-Palmolive and regional retailer ShopRite, beginning June 30, schools throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland that participate in the Colgate Oral Care Recycling Program are eligible to enter for a chance to win a garden 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 timeline. The top two schools with the most pledges by the end of the contest period will win the grand prize gardens. Grand prize winners will be announced in October, and the gardens will be installed next spring. 

Schools can encourage their community to pledge online. ShopRite is also encouraging community participation in the contest with displays throughout its 270 stores and information about the contest on ShopRite’s Facebook page.
