VANCOUVER, BC- In a world filled with eco-myths and ever-changing advice on how to lead a sustainable life, Tru Earth, the global household cleaning product company committed to eradicating plastic containers in the household, is stepping up as the beacon of truth. Today, Tru Earth announced its first-ever rebrand and campaign, 'Tru Clean,' aimed toward debunking common myths about eco-friendly habits and providing customers with clarity, reliability, and genuine solutions for cleaner and more sustainable lifestyles.
Based on a deep understanding that, while many individuals express a desire to adopt more eco-friendly practices, skepticism often acts as a significant barrier to meaningful change. The 'Tru Clean' campaign will address this challenge directly by uncovering common misunderstandings that cloud people's views on sustainable living.
As stories evolve over time, myths gain momentum, leading people to believe in little untruths, exaggerations, and dramas. As an example…MYTH: recycling laundry containers means they won't end up in landfills [TRUTH: only 30% of those put in bins get recycled].
Tru Clean Creative
At the heart of the campaign lies The Tru Clean Lab and the introduction of Dr. Tru, a dedicated myth-buster. Through innovative storytelling, the campaign unmasks the reality behind cleaning, cleaning products, and the issue of problematic packaging. Whether it's the misconception that spaghetti sauce will stain white clothes forever or the belief that traditional cleaning products are the sole solution to cleanliness, Dr. Tru and the Tru Clean Lab set the record straight.
"At Tru Earth, our commitment to the environment is unwavering," said Ryan McKenzie, CMO and co-founder of Tru Earth. "The 'Tru Clean' campaign marks a significant milestone in our journey. With Dr. Tru leading the charge, we're making a tangible impact by debunking myths and empowering individuals to embrace sustainable living. It's more than just a rebrand; it's a paradigm shift in perceptions and actions toward a greener planet."
In addition to running on YouTube and social media channels, video creative in :15 and :30 spots entitled "Spaghetti" and "Sustainability," will run in broadcast and across digital and streaming platforms. Tru Earth plans to amplify its message through PR efforts and various activations, such as trade shows, retail partnerships, and targeted marketing.
"We saw a huge opportunity for this campaign to be an entertaining voice of reason in the middle of all the confusion about how to live sustainably," said Peter Levin, executive creative director at FINN Partners who led the creative campaign development. "The campaign is unlike anything we've seen in this space and that fits since Tru Earth is a company unlike any other in the space. The easiest and most rewarding campaigns are those that support a great product and a great company. We hope the work educates, entertains, and inspires a new way forward for our customers."
