Tide Encourages Canadians to Brave the Cold…More Than They Already Do

New Tide advertising campaign challenges Canadians to wash laundry in cold water

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.

"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.
