Care To Recycle®, a program of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., provides fun tips, tricks and DIY projects to help recycle more in the bathroom. This Earth Day, SCA is partnering with Care To Recycle® to hold recycling activities at events nationwide. Collect your cardboard toilet paper tubes and bring them to the event, where our youth leaders will help kids and families transform them into colorful seed starters, then plant seeds to grow at home.


Can’t make it to the event? Upload a photo through the free Donate A Photo app and select SCA as the benefiting organization. For every photo uploaded, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1* to help empower the next generation of conservation leaders.

* Disclosure Statement: Johnson & Johnson has curated a list of trusted causes, and you can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. Each cause will appear in the app until it reaches its goal, or the donation period ends. If the goal isn’t reached, the cause will still get a minimum donation.
