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!
