Korean premium mineral water, Minewater (mi-neh-water), launched a new campaign to help people in Africa suffering from a lack of safe drinking water. But even though 89 per cent of consumers surveyed said they wanted to donate, only 0.9 per cent actually did so.
Based on the insight that people are naturally rather lazy, Cheil Worldwide and Minewater decided to make donating easy by introducing the Minewater Barcode drop (Barcodrop) sticker on each of the newly redesigned Minewater water bottles. Each bottle has two barcodes, one, to buy the bottle of water for $1, and an additional water-drop-shaped barcode for donating 10 cents toward water aid for Africa.To donate, customers only had to leave the Barcodrop sticker on and get it scanned at checkout. If the consumer had no wish to donate, they could simply peel the barcode sticker off.
