Case Study: Grønt Punkt's Influencer Campaign

The Challenge

Grønt Punkt (Green Dot) is an Oslo-based organization that operates a recycling lottery program. In the program, Grønt Punkt encourages consumers to recycle cardboard milk and juice cartons with their names and phone numbers on them for a chance to win 1,014 EUR. They wanted to create a campaign that was driven by user generated content to spread awareness of the program.

The Solution

Grønt Punkt created an influencer marketing campaign where they collaborated with 35 Instagram influencers to achieve their overall goal of reaching out to young people on social media and encouraging them to recycle. The influencers posted creative photos and videos of them participating in the recycling program, while sharing their content with the hashtag #returkartonglotteriet.
