Ahead of the cold and wet season of flu outbreaks, the Kimberly-Clark-owned Kleenex has readied something more than just a new bunch of strawberry-flavoured tissues.
Kimberly-Clark in a joint-promotion with Colgate-Palmolive have launched a coupon website in the USA, Pick Up the Values, to provide parents with tips and coupons for the companies’ personal care brands. This is expected to help mums and dads find better solutions for organizing the routine and budget of their families.
Ahead of the school year, Kleenex has centered its latest promotion, “Kleenex Xperiments,” around recreational science. The initiative is inspired by the fact that 58% of kids go to school when they are sick. So children do need something powerful to solve the nasal problems and prevent the spread of infection at school—Kleenex facial tissues. To reach the target audience, Kleenex commissioned young Einsteins with the task to prove that, as kids are more likely to believe their smart peers than traditional ads.
Kotex wants a woman to talk about her period openly, and to be not shy about this controversial theme. The feminine hygiene care brand has teamed up with Israeli agency Smoyz to launch another campaign dedicated to the theme on Pinterest (the agency says that it’s the first-ever promotional effort that uses this photo-sharing service, which is gaining momentum now). The creative team behind the project dubbed ‘Women’s inspiration day’ selected women, who shared the photos with items which inspire them most on Pinerest boards, and then Kotex asked a female designer to incorporate the new Kotex design into these interests, such as lanterns, bowls, vases, spoons, etc.
Brands use a plethora of ways to tell the world that they support sustainable practice and manufacture their products with nature in mind. They launch related campaigns, team up with global environmental organizations and release specifically certified products. Promoting the ecological philosophy around the globe, some brands are also targeting youngsters as consumers of tomorrow. PUMA has recently unveiled its new mascot Marmo and released a book about marine life featuring the red creature, and following the sportswear brand, Kimberly-Clark’s Kleenex Cottonelle is also presenting a new children’s book dedicated to the theme of saving orangutans.
