Seventh Generation unveiled today its first-ever all-digital brand campaign by agency 180LA, “Show the World What’s Inside.” The campaign educates and inspires consumers about the importance of knowing what’s inside their household cleaning and personal care products and how these ingredients impact the health and well-being of their families and the environment.

"This campaign hits people on an emotional level unlike anything we've done before," noted Courtney Loveman, Brand Mother at Seventh Generation. "It educates and ultimately inspires people to be the change they want to see in this world because change comes from the inside out."

Over the past several months, 180LA worked closely with new client Seventh Generation to develop, "Show the World What's Inside," a campaign that consists of a heavy digital push that uses banner ads and a microsite, http://www.showwhatsinside.com, allowing users to show what's 'inside of them' and provides important tools to take action.

A unique Label Reading Guide mobile application helps consumers navigate the cleaning aisle at the grocery store by providing an interactive glossary of commonly used on-pack terms and ingredients. An organic line of Ingredient shirts for babies, children and adults features a do-it-yourself ingredient label on the front and comes with a non-toxic marker, allowing consumers to list their personal "ingredients" and show the world what's inside of them. In addition, the microsite allows people to show their support for the Environmental Working Group, an organization whose primary focus is to protect children from health problems attributed to a wide array of toxic contaminants found in household products.

"Seventh Generation is far more than a line of fast moving products," noted William Gelner, executive creative director for 180LA. "It's a force for good, an agent for positive social change. They walk the talk. We are extremely proud to have been chosen as their lead agency partner."

The agency won the business on a purely digital pitch, led by recently hired digital director Conor McCann who joined 180LA from Crispin, Porter & Bogusky. Paul Sutton, also from CP&B, came onboard soon after winning the pitch. Both McCann and Sutton's work has garnered numerous awards, including a Cannes Titanium Grand Prix, London International Awards Grand Prize and One Show Gold for clients such as Burger King, X-Box Games and Volkswagen. McCann will lead the digital team with an emphasis on integration throughout 180LA's process.

"We're excited to have Conor and Paul onboard," said Gelner. "They bring so much proven experience in the digital arena and both have an incredible understanding of brands, agencies and the need for seamless integration. A few months in and we're already seeing this with all the Seventh Generation work."

Said Conor: "Being able to help a global agency like 180 with its digital offering is a great privilege. I feel very lucky to be working with these fine folks."
