Essity encourages us to keep green habits post lockdown
One of the positive things to come out of Coronavirus is that many of us started to appreciate our green spaces more than we had ever done before.
We were proud to support health and hygiene company, Essity who are the parent company to Cushelle, Bodyform, TENA and the key supplier of toilet paper to the NHS as they highlighted their plans to engage with the topic of sustainability within the sector.
To shine a light on the moves, we built fresh research looking at our changing sustainability habits throughout lockdown – highlighting how this period made us reflect and think about our impact on the environment more. As a result, the data showed that many of us would vote with our wallets when it comes helping the environment in the future.
To bring the story to life we teamed up with the founder of the Eden Project to discuss what truly needs to change in order for us to stick to our new found habits, with Essity calling on industry to do more to help consumers.
We’ve also aligned with campaigner and activist Ella Daish, who has been fighting for positive change – especially in the period plastic space.
Finally, we brought in Jo Pybus from Essity to showcase the importance of why business needs to start taking more action in order to help consumers make the best choices.
