Tinnovate With Garrett Popcorn

How can you eat Garrett Popcorn and help the environment? Upcycle your tin! Upcycling is the process of making an existing object into something new and exciting. We hope you’ll agree, there’s still plenty to enjoy when the tin is empty. 

Submit a photo of your best “Tinnovation” and you could be featured on our Pinterest board and our Facebook page!

Upcycle your tin and together let’s make the world a greener place.

Here’s what we’re doing:

  • Our ingredients are locally sourced to help reduce our carbon footprint
  • Only using soy inks and unbleached napkins
  • Using energy efficient lighting in our Shops
  • Sourcing resource-efficient, recycled or renewable packaging where possible
  • Using recyclable craft and shopping bags
  • Supporting the Chicago Gateway Green Project 

Let the creativity flow and submit a photo of your Tinnovation!

Gateway Green

For twenty years, the Gateway Green organization has worked to beautify the on-ramps and exits of Chicago’s expressways, gateways, and neighborhoods. This year, Garrett Popcorn has hopped aboard to turn the Ohio exit of the Kennedy Expressway into a lush field of popcorn! We’re proud to do our part to make the city greener.

If you want to support Gateway Green in its mission, please consider attending the Green Tie Ball this Saturday. The event will feature access to over 50 of Chicago’s top restaurants, premium open bars, silent auction and live entertainment. And, of course, Garrett Popcorn. All proceeds benefit the Expressway Partnership.
