Results and Effectiveness
The 'Global Warming Stick' campaign has led customers to form a more positive attitude toward Dunkin' Donuts in Korea and consequently, has decreased the usage of disposable coffee sticks considerably.
Dunkin' Donuts Korea handed out reusable coffee sticks to their customers. These reusable coffee sticks resemble the world's famous buildings or monuments. When the stick is dipped inside the cup, it looks as though the building is sinking under water. Therefore it is called 'Global Warming Stick'.
Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Everyday, 170,000 customers visit 730 Dunkin' Donuts stores within Korea. They consume 500,000 disposable coffee sticks every month. In response to this, Dunkin' Donuts Korea decided to cut back on the usage of disposable coffee sticks. Furthermore, it has planned to use coffee sticks as advertising tools to remind people about global warming.
The Promo / PR Ad titled GLOBAL WARMING STICK was done by Cheil Worldwide advertising agency for product: Dunkin' Donuts (brand: Dunkin Donuts) in South Korea. It was released in the Jun 2009.
