Tom’s of Maine, a provider of natural personal care products, has partnered with TerraCycle to announce the Brush Up & Recycle Contest.

Through October 31, schools are invited to mail in empty packaging from the Tom’s of Maine Natural Care recycling program to TerraCycle for a chance to win a grand prize of 50,000 TerraCycle bonus points that are redeemable for cash payment to an organization or school of their choice. Additionally, five schools that participate in the contest will be randomly selected to win 10,000 TerraCycle points, respectively.

The packaging from the following Tom’s of Maine products are eligible for recycling:

  • Mouthwash bottles and caps
  • Naturally Clean and Whole Care toothbrushes for adults, children and toddlers
  • Antiplaque floss containers
  • Toothpaste tubes and caps
  • Deodorant containers and caps
  • Bar soap packaging

“The benefits of this program are two-fold,” said Tom Szaky, TerraCycle founder and CEO, in a statement. “Tom’s of Maine is offering consumers a powerful, sustainable option to divert waste from landfills and has chosen to take their commitment to their customers a step further by offering a donation that will create a lasting impact for a deserving school.”

The Tom’s of Maine Natural Care Recycling Program is an ongoing activity that is open to any individual, family, school or community group.
