Recycled paper

Published/Aired: 
August 2006
Description: 

The idea was to advetise Green Choice's environmentally friendly products by making ads that were themselves environmentally friendly. Posters were printed on reused scrap paper that had been previously destined for landfill. This poster was printed on office waste paper, eg. faxes, photocopies and emails.

this one is the best. you can still tell that the paper is recycled without it overtaking the visual, great concept.

If this campaign was printed on recycled paper, why is the ad artwork BEHIND all of the scrap paper copy? Shouldn't the new printed ink of the bottle be OVER the copy on the scratch paper? Maybe I just can't tell from these views or I'm missing something.

Interesting concept though.

I don't think green (cyan + yellow) will cover black.

It's probably just my not really being able to view them close enough. Perhaps if I could look at the real thing, I would see it. The one that really gets me is the toilet bowl cleaner. It is playing tricks on my eyes and looks like the bottle is behind the fax lines. All in perception!

Will the consumer notice the recycle paper? Is a billboard, consumer suppose to view it from far range, so i dont think it will work interactively with the consumer. Nice concept thou.
