Veolia Allows People To Step Inside Their Kitchen Bin Via Republic of Everyone

Veolia Allows People To Step Inside Their Kitchen Bin Via Republic of Everyone

Waste happens, but what happens to your waste? For the first time, you can spend a day in the life of a discarded tomato and see waste from a whole new point of view – literally.

A 360-degree VR video invites you to immerse yourself in the kitchen bin, travel through waste processing machines and see what it’s like to be turned into lovely, rich compost.

The video is part of Veolia’s latest campaign called ‘Rethinking Sustainability’, which uses a new visual identity to bring the waste journey to life.

The campaign demonstrates how Veolia Australia and New Zealand is making a difference to millions of people every day simply by creating what is called a ‘circular economy’.

Its aim is to get people rethinking about their everyday consumption by showing them how their waste can be transformed into something new.

Antony Schillaci, national sales, marketing and communications manager at Veolia ANZ, said: “The video gives the viewer the opportunity to understand the connection between their everyday habits, such as throwing food waste in a bin, and what Veolia is delivering behind the scenes to help process this waste.

“We wanted to bring it life, humanise it almost, and let the audience explore and understand the positive benefits brought about by looking at new ways of doing things.

“The message behind it is really about rethinking our resources and encouraging people to rethink their water, waste and energy habits.”

Veolia ANZ shifted its communication priorities in 2017, evolving its corporate message to tell the story of its dedication to sustainability, social responsibility and resourcing the world.

The ‘Rethinking Sustainability’ campaign by Veolia and brand and sustainability agency Republic of Everyone is a direct result of this shift, targeting a broader audience in order to challenge perceptions of resource management and sustainability.

The campaign aims to inform Australians and New Zealanders how Veolia positively impacts their everyday lives through extraordinary innovation and sustainability practices.

Republic of Everyone created the campaign concept and video, with sister PR agency The Bravery driving further awareness to the campaign through a school sustainability challenge in collaboration with football legends, the Newcastle Jets.

The campaign is also supported by a media partnership with the Newcastle Herald and a targeted social media campaign.
