Knorr’s commitment to environmental sustainability is reflected in the philosophy of “getting the most out of every ingredient,” and we expressed that in the marketing by turning “trash into advertisements.” Using discarded Knorr boxes, we created 8 types of posters and used them to “train jack” Tokyo rail lines.
Our ultra-efficient campaign gained awareness of over 100,000 people during a 3-day train jack. Since the posters were handmade, the creative cost was zero. We succeeded in viscerally appealing the message that Knorr is an ecological + economical brand.
The Outdoor Advert titled 100% EMPTY BOX POSTER CORN was done by Hakuhodo Dy Media Partners advertising agency for product: Cup-a-soup (brand: Knorr) in Japan. It was released in the Apr 2009.
