Being an entertainment channel, Star Jalsha heavily relied on two mediums to promote their shows: namely, television and outdoor.The challenge was to create a campaign that goes beyond traditional media to make 'Chalo Paltai' a practice and not restrict the phrase to a mere philosophy. Star Jalsha had approximately 500 billboards put up in the city of Kolkata. If left to fate, these would end up in the dumping yard causing unnecessary pollution. So instead of creating a campaign we launched the ‘Chalo Paltai’ movement. Flex from Star Jalsha’s billboards was recycled into many useful things.

Client Brief Or Objective
TV channel Star Jalsha wanted to live up to its brand philosophy of ‘Chalo Palai’ (Let’s Change). At the same time the channel was looking to become more environment-friendly by reducing their carbon footprint.

Over 150 tents were distributed in the flood-hit regions of West Bengal. The recycled shopping bags helped replace approximately 1.5m harmful polythene bags. Star Network along with many other companies has already joined the movement. 'Chalo Paltai' is now no longer just a philosophy but a practice. And most importantly, the movement till date has helped recycle more than 1.7m kilos of flex.

Since the brand philosophy of Star Jalsha is 'Chalo Paltai' which means 'Let's Change', changing the channel's billboards into useful things made perfect sense.
