Heart of the City Litter in Auckland

Heart of The City, representative group for Auckland City businesses, worked with Colenso BBDO to discourage people from littering the streets of Auckland with an award-winning outside campaign. Colenso BBDO Auckland showed pedestrians just how much rubbish is dropped around one bus shelter in one week. Everyday the rubbish found around the bus shelters was picked up and placed inside the bus shelter.

The litter stunt was recognised as Campaign of the Month in July by Clear Channel.
