Col­gate and Ter­raCy­cle are call­ing pri­mary school pupils to do­nate tooth­brushes, tooth­paste tubes and caps and floss con­tain­ers for the Col­gate Bright Smiles Bright Fu­tures (BSBF) re­cy­cling com­pe­ti­tion. Ter­raCy­cle and Col­gate-Pal­mo­live are aim­ing to ed­u­cate chil­dren on oral health and ways to re­duce land­fill waste. Re­cy­cled oral care waste will be made into prod­ucts like a park bench that will be awarded to the win­ning school. Col­gatePal­mo­live Aus­tralia and New Zealand mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor Yvonne Hsu said the BSBF pro­gramme would en­cour­age the com­mu­nity to en­sure their oral care waste did not end up in land­fill. Peo­ple can do­nate oral care waste through New Zealand Post for free. Par­tic­i­pat­ing schools also have the chance to be awarded a $1000 cash prize. The com­pe­ti­tion ends on Novem­ber 1.
