The opportunity

World Oceans Week gave Corona UK (@coronauk) the opportunity to boost awareness of the critical issue of plastic marine pollution and gain mass support for its battle to save and protect the world’s oceans.

The strategy

Twitter provided @coronauk with the perfect platform to amplify its environmental message and boost engagement for its #ProtectParadise campaign. 

In the lead-up to World Oceans Week, @coronauk used First View and Promoted Trend Spotlight to put the issue of plastic pollution front of mind and gain maximum exposure for its #ProtectParadise call to action, which asked people to give up one item of single-use plastic for a month in exchange for a free Corona.

Next, Conversational Cards helped to drive engagement and boost the conversation throughout the week, as @coronauk encouraged audiences to Retweet custom hashtags to show which plastic items they were committed to cutting out. 

Support from trusted influencer Ben Fogle (@Benfogle), who was featured in all campaign video content, helped to raise further awareness across Twitter. And by highlighting its ongoing environmental projects with Parley (@parleyforoceans), @coronauk built even stronger connections with conservation enthusiasts.
