TerraCycle Announces 2018 Save Water Garden Pledge Contest

Through the contest, schools have a chance to win one of two recycled gardens made from recycled oral care waste.

TerraCycle announced the 2018 Save Water Garden promotion, the first-ever pledging contest with Colgate-Palmolive and regional retailer ShopRite. The partnership calls upon 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.

Starting July 8, schools located throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland are eligible to enter for a chance to win a garden made from recycled toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and floss containers by joining TerraCycle’s Colgate Oral Care Recycling Program, a free, national program hosted by Colgate and TerraCycle.

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.
