Don’t be caught unprepared for your weekend. Upcycle your Garrett tin and carry all the essentials for your road trip!

Suggested items for this Tinnovation:

  • One Garrett Tin, any size depending on capacity of your car
  • A variety of music, to please all musical palates
  • Bottled water, to hydrate between singing to said music
  • Ear plugs, to drown out said singing
  • Travel size games, preferably without small parts
  • Books, for the inevitable lull in conversation
  • Mints, especially if the drive is long
  • Hand held fan, in case the A/C gives out
  • Napkins, to keep the car neat during snack time
  • A noise maker, to keep your driver awake


  1. Enjoy your Garrett Popcorn!
  2. Collect, wash and dry your tin.
  3. Fill your tin with the items you may need for your road trip. Enjoy the drive with a well-supplied Garrett tin of activities!

Tinnovate on Earth Day

Upcycling is the process of giving potentially recyclable items more value. While Garrett tins are 100% recyclable, most items that enter that stream are “downcycled” into raw materials and used to create items with lesser value.

While we have ideas about how to reuse and re-purpose our tins, we know that our fans are just as passionate and creative. After all, one of the best ideas from our fans was to combine CheeseCorn™ and CaramelCrisp® into The Chicago Mix!

Now, we need you to Tinnovate!

If you have an upcycling idea for your Garrett Tin, please share it with the world. We’ll feature your great ideas on our Facebook page, Pinterest, and on our site to inspire others to do their part to make the world a sweeter place!
