Community Fridges

The Brief

Since 2013, Sainsbury’s has sent zero waste to landfill and part of this is due to sending edible food waste to local ‘Community Fridges’. The client team wanted a short, uplifting film to use on the Sainsbury’s corporate website, YouTube channel and Facebook page to publicise this activity more widely.

Our Thinking

We proposed a simple documentary approach, interviewing Sainsbury’s colleagues, local residents and community centre staff involved in a single fridge project. These interviews gave a warm authenticity to the film and were supplemented by fun, stop-motion style sequences which would also lend themselves to short edits for social channels.


Social campaign

As well as longer, 16:9 versions for Sainsbury’s website and YouTube channels, we also created shorter, caption-lead versions for use on Instagram Stories and Facebook as part of a sponsored campaign.
