National Toilet Paper Day

Quilted Northern faced challenges growing in brick-and-mortar stores, with consumers less loyal and retailers favoring private label. Amazon needed to tackle low interest in buying toilet paper online. A partnership around a one-day promotion proved powerful: we combined Quilted Northern's promise of "Designed to be Forgotten" and Amazon's Subscribe & Save feature (putting toilet paper shopping on autopilot) to create an activation around the year's most forgettable day: National Toilet Paper Day. The results were memorable: big sales, new audiences and a pipeline of loyal subscription customers.

Walgreens Give H20PE to Others

Imagine the power of changing lives by just ONE purchase at Walgreens? We did, and set out to make a difference. Clean drinking water is scarce and nearly 1 billion people don't have access to it. In 2016, Unilever and Walgreens, in partnership with Me to We set out to change that and #GiveH2OPE to people in need. We drove awareness of the global water crisis and provided 13 million gallons of clean water to a community in Kenya. We drove 50% incremental dollar sales lift, and made purchases at Walgreens matter.
