What is upcycling?

Upcycling is the process of converting old or discarded material into something useful and beautiful.

You can always send your used plastic containers to be recycled, and that’s great! But you can also creatively turn those bottles into something new and useful for your household. Upcycling is great for the environment and can also be a fun activity for your family, which is why Tide created a content series to inspire and educate you about reusing old bottles and packaging. Here, you can see the different ways that you can repurpose used Tide products and packaging.

At Tide, we put a lot of time and care into creating eco-friendly packaging to help minimize our impact on the environment. For more info on this and why we base all of our detergents on renewable materials, visit our sustainability page.
