Oral Care Recycling Program brought to you by: ZeroW.org, Colgate, TerraCycle
In addition to reducing plastic trash and turning it into something useful, this program also generates monetary donations from TerraCycle/Colgate to Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition to encourage more people to bicycle -- reducing Climate Change, increasing health, and making all our local streets safer for everyone.
ZeroW.org manages the local collection and shipping using volunteer power.
Colgate funds the program and is a good example of Extended Producer Responsibility. In fact they are going above and beyond by handling oral care waste from any producer.
TerraCycle provides the logistics for material and financial flows.
