Description / Synopsis

Show Aussies that what happens on land can affect our oceans and waterways. In print, we would inform Aussies, even surprise them, by illustrating that the distance between land and water, when it comes to litter, may not be as far as they think. At the very least, litter pollutes our water. But it also has the capacity to impact our marine life. In a surprising, engaging way, we showed Aussies that that seemingly harmless chip packet or cigarette butt can have far-reaching consequences.


The truth was that all Aussies, from Bourke to Bondi, have a deep-seated connection to the water. It is a part of our national identity and something we hold dear. We would leverage this insight and make Aussies see that litter has the unfortunate, but reliable, talent of ending up in our waterways. We looked to connect the actions of Aussies on land to the water.


To create some attention around the issue littering in Australia and in particular how fast food waste can contribute to this. To raise awareness of, and participation in, Keep Australia Beautiful Week 2011, where the theme was the oceans and waterways.
