Watch the sustainability video

At Princes, we’re helping you recycle more with our 100% recyclable tuna multipacks. So to celebrate, we’ve teamed up with interior designer Gemma Gear for our third challenge. We want to see your best lockdown recycling project. Maybe you’ve made a planter from an old tyre, or a pen holder from a tuna can. Anything goes!

Simply send us a pic of your project and tell us why you should win our third Sustainable September challenge.

Did you know: There is approx. £30 Billion worth of unused clothing in Britain’s Wardrobes*

Struggling for inspiration for your lockdown upcycle? Look no further than the wardrobe. There is approximately £30 billion worth of unused clothing in Britain’s wardrobes*. Buying things that we do not wear isn’t just a waste of money, it’s also a waste of the many resources that go into manufacturing and transporting items to the shops.
Granted, some of your favourite items might need a little TLC. Rather than throwing these out, learn to sew and mend where possible to avoid spending money to replace them. Add some embroidery to a plain tee or transform old trousers into shorts! The options are endless.
