THE BRIEF

Drive awareness of Back Market in the UK, highlighting the impact of buying new tech and disrupting a linear economy to make it more circular.

How we approached it

Most people know the impact of fast fashion, but very few realise the tech industry contributes 4% of global carbon emissions (air travel contributes 3%, FYI).  

Focused on alerting and educating mainstream audiences about the impact their new devices have on the planet and why they need to change damaging obsessions with all things ‘new’. 

We needed a pipeline of impactful stories, from consumer research exploring the nation’s tech-buying habits, to celebrating a circular Christmas and campaigning for the Right to Repair. We got people and the media talking about tech’s role in the climate crisis - and what each of us can do to make a difference. 

As a scaling global business, this was supported by a strong pipeline of business news including a Series E funding round and new partnership announcements.

Through W+P’s impressive network, they provided incredible opportunities to tell our story, creating those ‘wow’ moments that got people talking globally.

The results were incredible – they achieved vast earned media reach that set the media agenda. Ultimately, this provided me the ultimate success metric, linking the brand to a wide variety of new consumers.

“I've engaged many PR companies over the years, it's always a great sales presentation followed by an expensive ongoing retainer. W+P is delightfully and refreshingly different, it's as if the team are a part of ours.

I hope others don't find out just how good W+P is, we really want to keep them all to ourselves”
