As part of a team of three, I wrote the copy for this ad to promote the William Wrigley Jr. Company’s “Sustainability In Action” campaign, as well as help edit the photo.
The text is as follows:
Wrigley’s believes in advancing the well being of people and the planet, now and for future generations, by making sound environmental, social, and economic practices second nature in everything we do.
Today, more than ever, sustainability is one of our leading priorities and we have committed our people, our resources, and our innovative energy to advancing the well being of our associates and our neighbors around the world. We are committed to reduce our waste, carbon footprint, and water impact by at least 3 percent every year, regardless of business growth. We are committed to using sustainable materials and partnering with sustainable suppliers. We are committed to further educating and promoting responsible use and disposal of our products.
The following was originally intended to run at the bottom of the ad:
