East Shore hopes to win playground in contest

East Shore Middle School is competing to win a playground made from recycled oral care waste through the second annual Recycled Playground Challenge, courtesy of Colgate-Palmolive, ShopRite and recycler TerraCycle.
East Shore Middle School will earn one playground credit for each shipment of empty toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes and floss containers sent to TerraCycle by the students and teachers, and one credit for every online vote cast for the school at terracycle.com/colgateshopriteplayground by June 13.
The grand prize playground will be made from recycled toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and floss containers collected through the Colgate Oral Care Brigade program, a free recycling program operated by Colgate and TerraCycle.
This year’s Recycled Playground Challenge was launched in March 2015 among schools throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland that participate in the Colgate Oral Care Brigade, a free recycling program operated by Colgate and TerraCycle.
