In Garnier’s second year of partnering with the Australian Open, the brand has utilised the sponsorship to complement and amplify its existing Coast to Court creative campaign currently in market.
As part of this program Garnier is excited to have produced the first competition grade tennis net made completely of recycled plastics.
With over 800,000 fans estimated to attend the event in 2020, the Garnier Coast to Court activation helps tennis fans take a journey through Garnier’s mission to reduce the plastic waste making its way into our oceans and onto our beaches every year.
The experience invites fans to walk through the wave, feel the mist of water on their skin, learn about Garnier’s sustainable approach and, on their way out, take a unique photo and a sample of Garnier’s iconic Micellar Water – with its 100 per cent recyclable plastic packaging.
Speaking to the role of experiential marketing in driving and amplifying campaign engagement, Alexandra Shadbolt, Garnier Marketing Director, said: “Garnier is committed to sustainable sourcing and reducing our environmental footprint to support our future generations.
“If we can engage in a conversation and offer a fun and interactive activation that truly resonates with Australians, then it’s the first step in creating a more sustainable future.”
