House of Hiranandani, a premium real estate developer, recently launched the #RhymeForEarth campaign to raise awareness about serious environmental challenges. The initiative ‘Rhyme for Earth’ propagates the need for a sustainable lifestyle. It is the first action-oriented step towards inspiring everyone to make a change in their day-to-day lives and contribute to a cleaner and greener tomorrow. The campaign #RhymeForEarth was unveiled recently by presenting a 10 feet installation made with plastic waste at the Hiranandani Estate in Thane during the Cyclothon event held by the developer.
The #RhymeforEarth initiative aims to raise awareness about the need for environmental protection. According to United Nations research, up to 13 million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year, and the plastic will outnumber marine life in the oceans by 2050. According to another Lancet study, poor air quality kills over a million people in India each year. The #RhymeForEarth movement is a thought-provoking initiative that provides a reality check on the devastation of nature. Its goal is to motivate individuals to live more environmentally responsible lives.
The campaign is based on popular rhymes but with a twist. Each rhyme is a hard-hitting narration by kids highlighting environmental issues Rewriting popular rhymes creates recall and who better than kids to establish the serious message about their future and the world that they would be living in. The campaign has been shot at real locations such as a garbage dumping ground, a beach with trash all around, and a busy, heavily-trafficked street with vehicle noise, which are relatable situations and environments today.
Prashin Jhobalia, Vice President, Marketing Strategy, House of Hiranandani, “Sustainability has been at the core of the brand, and the focus has always been by creating a balance in nature with multiple green initiatives. Every year we try to strengthen our efforts towards our biggest belief: A Better Planet. ‘Rhyme for Earth’ is a unique concept through which we intend to attract everyone’s attention to degradation caused to the environment. Along with creating awareness, we also intend to bring about a transformational change in our everyday lives that can positively impact our surroundings and, thus, create a better world for our future generations. We believe the campaign thought is simply outstanding and has immense potential for each one of us to think and bring a change for a better tomorrow.”
Speaking on the campaign, Chetan Asher, CEO and Co-Founder – Tonic Worldwide said, “There’s no doubt that rhymes are one of the simplest ways to boost memory and recall. And we just did that with Rhyme for Earth. In a sea of communication about sustainability, the challenge is to inspire action. Using rhymes with a twist the communication is intended to engage across age groups.”
