Thank you for showing your support for ShopRite, Unilever and ME to WE Foundation’s shared mission of empowering youth with the resources to reduce plastic waste in their local communities. 

How to reduce plastic? It starts with empowering youth.

Plastic pollution is a growing problem that’s impacting oceans, wildlife, our surroundings and the future of our kids. That’s why ShopRite and Unilever have teamed up with the ME to WE Foundation to empower 50,000 youth across America to reduce plastic waste in their local communities. How? By providing a free resource through WE Schools programming that teaches students about the issue, and provides them with strategies and activities to create sustainable solutions. We’re also helping students bring these ideas to life with financial grants for local schools.

You can show your support by purchasing select Unilever products at your local ShopRite store. It’s all part of Every Day U Does Good, Unilever’s promise to help you support social causes with your everyday purchases! Together, we can empower the next generation to use plastic responsibly, and build a greener, more sustainable future.

Teachers and students across America are taking small steps in the marathon race toward plastic waste reduction: like the WE Club at West Side High School in Newark, New Jersey.
