We came across this story because of the repurposing challenge through a program partnership initiated by Colgate® with schools. The Recycled Playground Challenge created by TerraCycle®, a highly-awarded, international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products, is collaborating with Colgate® on this effort. TerraCycle® repurposes material into affordable, innovative products. The goal of TerraCycle® is to be a trusted resource for schools, communities, families and corporations, to find out information and news that will help live a greener and cleaner lifestyle.

TerraCycle® and Colgate® have partnered to create the Colgate Oral Care Brigade®, a free recycling program for oral care product packaging and a fundraising opportunity for participants. Colgate Oral Care Brigade’s accepted waste includes:

  • Toothpaste tubes and caps
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste tube outer packaging
  • Floss containers

Thank you TerraCycle® and Colgate® for your efforts to help us be cognizant of our recycling habits for a more sustainable way of living, while focusing on oral hygiene at the same time!
