Waste Awareness Wales – Full House campaign

Equinox was commissioned by Waste Awareness Wales to develop and deliver a bespoke three-month marketing campaign to support three specific Local Authorities, in Neath Port Talbot, Caerphilly and Wrexham, in increasing recycling rates by encouraging all members in the household to recycle, from every room in the house – not just the kitchen.

Outputs:  bilingual campaign theme ‘Full house – recycle upstairs and downstairs’ to communicate the every room and everybody message; Partner toolkit of downloadable campaign collateral for use by the three LAs & their partners on the ground;  community road shows across 12 local supermarkets and shopping centres using promotional teams and campaign branded leaflets, cloth bags, fridge magnets, window stickers to promote the Full House message & encourage people to sign up to our online pledge to recycle more across their homes; marketing support through a tailored package of Face Book advertising, bus and local radio advertising and bespoke local media partnerships to reach our specific target audiences, many of whom lived in Communities First clusters.
