Tree People / Single consumer

Agency: Lowe and Rivet
Client: Genesis Energy

Genesis Energy, New Zealand's largest electricity retailer, had to balance greater energy demands with a government-imposed decrease of its carbon footprint. Lowe and Rivet helped Genesis make going green easy enough for a child, through the Tree People Web site. Rather than promote age-old, easily dismissed ideas like shutting off lights when leaving a room, Genesis brought people together on an online social network. Users adopted a virtual native tree and every pledge and lifestyle change caused the tree to grow. Users could join groups, give to other people's trees and win prizes. A virtual forest of 13,000 trees sprang up, proving the power of small, concerted efforts by individuals.

Save The Children / Single nonprofit

Agency: M&C Saatchi Melbourne
Client: Save The Children

Save the Children (STC), the child develop­ment organization, operates in more than 100 countries. It tapped agency M&C Saatchi to broaden its exposure in Australia with an interactive, animated site detailing the work of STC's founder, Eglantyne Jebb. The site was called Lessons in Leadership from a Spinster in a Brown Cardigan, and touts STC's educational aspect by loading an animated, Flash-based open book upon entry. Twelve “lessons” on leadership are featured, highlighting the life of Jebb, the story of how STC was founded after World War I and the five fundamental rights she believed all children have. The site calls users to action and shows lagging donations compared to Europe and the US.
