23.05.2017 - "On Loan"

Norwegian front runner Lerøy launched a new food packaging campaign. We like it so much, that we decided to share it. It is a great and simple way to explain how aluminium is being recycled. Read it and be inspired.

To educate consumers, the campaign explains that aluminium is not owned by anyone, but is only on loan. Aluminium is 100% recyclable and is reused in various applications, for example in bikes, construction and cars.

The first step of the campaign is a little booklet that is attached to Lerøy’s ready meals, explaining where to throw out the container after use. Giving consumers the possibility to learn about packaging materials and making it easier to take responsibility is a big step towards a more sustainable future.
