Nike’s Sustainable Business Department wanted to raise awareness of sustainability among consumers at the point of purchase. This would help Nike stand out in a very crowded space with a new point of difference. Lots of factors hinder additional marketing/promotion at this level, from retailer restrictions to limited floor space.
I pitched the concept of a system to rate the sustainability of each product through four core levels: water savings, CO2 reduction, recyclability and waste reduction. This allows consumers to quickly digest the unseen benefits of Nike’s apparel at the key 3-5 second selection process.
To keep it simple, I developed an icon rating tag that was easily implemented alongside the price tag. A new upper rack card was also created with simple, bold definitions of the four factors. We also referred consumers to a Nike URL and an in-store iPad/Kiosk with simple, bold action phrases to make a difference in their purchase.
The end result was a working setup in a local Nike Goddess store to run a 2-week limited test of the program. I designed and produced new tags, shelf cards, signage, and kiosk for the test, along with internal education materials for the staff.
