2021 Colgate® & ShopRite® Save Water Challenge

PARENTS: Teach your kids to save water, and you could help your children’s school win a recycled garden from Colgate, ShopRite, and TerraCycle®!

Teach Kids that Every Drop Counts

As things warm up (and often dry up) in the summer, you realize what a critical resource water is for life. This summer, you can help your children learn an important lesson about conserving water - and the role water plays in gardens and providing the food we eat. By teaching your children to be more aware about water conservation (like turning off the water while they’re brushing their teeth), you can help your kids’ school win a community garden made from recycled toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes!
