Love Food Hate Waste NZ + TBWA\NZ launch OOH campaign that literally goes off – togetherbe

Spoiler Alert: New Zealanders waste $3.2B of food every year, which is both terrible for the environment and for our pockets. So, in an effort to combat household food waste by 50% by 2030, Love Food Hate Waste NZ (LFHW) teamed up with TBWA\New Zealand to help bring much needed attention to this issue. To bring awareness to this, TBWA\NZ made their for good messages go bad, creating massive billboards that grew mould over a series of weeks.

 

TBWA\NZ worked with Landcare Biometrics and specially created three giant petri dishes filled with agar that would grow a mould unhazardous to the general public. That mould was of course from a food; blue cheese, with petri dishes themselves measure 1 metre in diameter. Then outdoor ad specialists Bootleg got onboard to help create the unique living billboards.

The billboards went live mid April, gradually producing mould naturally over the course of six weeks. The stunt was in service of drawing attention to the massive food waste issue and a new initiative, reusable Eat Me First stickers. The reusable stickers were free and made available to the public from a quick scan of a QR codes on the OOH, LFHW’s website, regional councils or available to pick up for free in selected Woolworth’s stores across the country.

Says Sophie Wolland, project manager of LFHW: “We needed our message to be in your face. Because food waste is such a major issue that we don’t often think about day to day.

“The stark visual representation of wasted food aims to shock passersby into action, motivating and inspiring Kiwis to reduce their food waste, minimise their carbon footprint by cutting harmful emissions from food waste and save money.”

Says Shane Brandnick, chief creative officer, TBWA\NZ: “It’s one of those issues where it’s tough to get people to take action, it needs some big attention grabbing stunts and a smart way to remind us all to eat our older food first, before it needs to be thrown out.

“This campaign was super technical for the team to deliver but a really vivid reminder, that if we don’t eat it, we waste it – and that’s terrible for a family’s budget and really bad for our environment.”

LFHW also went big with several giant monuments of mouldy food. A huge apple covered in mould by the waterfront in Wellington reminded Kiwis that “nobody likes a bad apple,” while a massive piece of mouldy toast in the train station nearby inspired people to “break the mould.”

The campaign culminated with the revived NZ Lamb & Beef’s 16-foot tall lamb chop in Te Komititanga Plaza at Britomart, of course, with a mouldy twist. Now gone off, just like all their campaign billboards and posters, the lamb chop towered over the public covered in faux mould. Accompanying signage read “the meat of the matter” – which is surely fitting for the way this for-good organisation approached solving this prevalent issue.
