Ecosurety and Hubbub recycling campaign shortlisted for a Business Green Leaders Award

The #BringBackHeavyMetal consumer awareness campaign undertaken in 2017 to increase UK battery recycling has been recognised at Europe’s most prestigious and high profile green awards.

Shortlisted in the new category of Environmental Awareness Campaign of the Year, the #BringBackHeavyMetal awareness campaign was designed to encourage more consumers to recycle unwanted domestic batteries and used a combination of social media, video, a dedicated website.

The campaign also championed a ‘battery amnesty’, whereby consumers could return their used batteries to a host of retailers including Asda, B&Q, Currys PC World, The Entertainer, M&S and Morrisons. This resulted in a 64% increase in collections at one national retailer.

Innovative and collaborative

The Business Green Leaders Awards bring together the best and brightest from across the green community to celebrate the projects, individuals, teams and organisations that are redefining what it means to be a successful business.

Managing director James Piper commented “We are absolutely thrilled that #BringBackHeavyMetal has been shortlisted for another prestigious award with our partner Hubbub. As we prepare to run the campaign again in 2018, this is a great reminder that innovative and collaborative campaigns can make a tangible impact.”
