First UK playground made from recycled oral care products

Colgate and recycling partner TerraCycle launched the first playground in the UK made from recycled oral care products in September 2019: The playground at Cranford Park Primary School in Yateley, Hampshire, was made using lumber created with over 30,000 recycled oral care products including toothbrushes, tubes, caps, electric toothbrush heads and toothbrush and toothpaste packaging.

It consists of two slides, a bridge and a tunnel and was awarded to Cranford Park following a nationwide competition run in association with ASDA. “Not only does it mean the children now have an exciting new play area, but it also acts as an important reminder of things we can do to protect the environment”, said Rebecca Portch, Teacher, Cranford Park Primary School.
