TNT Fireworks is launching a new public safety campaign focused on water conservation and the responsible use and safe disposal of state-approved fireworks:
“Let your fireworks take a dip!”
Soak your fireworks in a bucket of water when the show is over

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (June 17, 2022) – TNT® Fireworks (TNT), the leading wholesale distributor of California State Fire Marshal-Approved, Safe and Sane Fireworks, today announced the launch of its new 2022 public safety campaign focused on water conservation and safe use. and responsible disposal of state-approved fireworks.

The campaign includes a public service announcement that emphasizes how “water is an essential part of the Californian way of life” and how this July 4, Californians can put their water to good use by using a bucket of “ gray water” from their tub to safely soak and dispose of their state-approved used fireworks.

Piccolo Pete, one of TNT’s most popular and iconic branded products, takes center stage in the new campaign, encouraging consumers to save household gray water and use it to give used fireworks a cool off during the night after the show when he encourages Californians to “Leave your Fireworks, take a bath!”.

“As the California drought enters its third painful summer and Southern Californians face unprecedented water reductions and Central Valley farmers struggle, it is incumbent upon us all to use the water to good effect,” TNT President Carson Anderson said. “Just like Piccolo Pete says, ‘If we all work together, we can make a difference for the future of our state!'”

TNT urges that when your state-approved fireworks show is over and the used fireworks have cooled, completely submerge them in a large bucket of water and soak them until they are completely saturated. Small, used fireworks should soak for at least an hour, while larger ones should soak overnight.

For many, barbecues and fireworks are a family tradition. TNT Fireworks promotes three key messages to ensure your 4th of July celebration is safe and responsible:

• Be careful: Be selective when choosing a location to shoot fireworks. A dry, level surface such as concrete, dirt, or pavement away from structures, dry grass, or trees is the agreed safest place to set off government-approved fireworks. ‘State. Always read and follow the instructions on every state-approved firework display.

• Stay legal: be aware of local fireworks laws and use only fireworks approved by the fire marshal as safe and sound. Obey local laws and use common sense.

• Act responsibly: Have a sober adult present and handle your display. Be mindful of noise issues for neighbors and pets. Prepare a pipe and “Let your fireworks take a dip!” in a bucket of gray water overnight after completing your display. Next, clean up your display area!

More than 2,000 nonprofit organizations in more than 296 California communities (click here for a list of open communities) are relying more than ever on the funds they raise by selling safe and healthy fireworks approved by the Commissioner of California State Fires every July 4th. These nonprofits range from well-established organizations that provide essential services to large numbers of people to small groups that fill a specific niche through the help they provide in their community. Each year, these nonprofit organizations collectively bring in approximately $35 million that helps advance education, improve lives, and provide an essential part of California’s social services safety net.

“We help nonprofit organizations raise money to fund positive impacts on programs for youth, seniors, disadvantaged people, veterans, sports and schools in your community! Anderson concluded.
