New Tide advertising campaign challenges Canadians to wash laundry in
TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - Winter is upon us and Canadians know better
than most what it means to brave the cold. So this year, Tide is
challenging Canadians to brave the cold - in the laundry room too - in
a new campaign called Brave the Cold. Launched this month, Brave the Cold encourages Canadians to embrace cold water washing with Tide just like
they embrace Canadian winters.
While consumers can save up to 70 per cent of energy by washing laundry
in cold water compared to washing in warm*, many are still afraid to
make the switch.

traditional top loading washing machine with an electric water heater)
"When it comes to the cold, Canadians take great pride in their ability
to brave chilly weather and we wanted to harness this with the Tide Brave the Cold campaign," said Ryan Engel, brand manager for Tide. "We all embrace our
cold Canadian winters, but our research found that only 37 per cent of
Canadians are washing their laundry in cold water today, which means
there is still a huge opportunity for us to save energy and resources
by making the switch to cold. Tide with Actilift gets stains out better
in cold water than the next leading brand - so it's easy to switch to
cold, save money, save energy and get clean clothes too."
The initiative aims to encourage the feeling of being proudly and
genuinely Canadian. To capture this, the ad was shot outside in
Calgary during a weekend when temperatures ranged between minus 10 and
minus 17 degrees Celsius.
