To promote its star product, a t-shirt made out of 100% recycled materials, the company – Everybody.World – chose to make an ad also made out of recycled video and audio.
The “Trash Tee” is the star product of a company called Everybody.World. The t-shirt is made from 100% processed waste cotton fibers. When its founders Iris Alonza and Carolina Crespo – both ex-American Apparel employees – reached out to director Anton du Preez, the latter thought it was obvious that the ad needed to be 100% recycled as well.
Together with agency Johannes Leonardo, they created the first 100% recycled ad, made out of 14-year old stock footage and audio snippets of PSAs from the 1950s. Where new footage was required, they shot on vintage Kodak film.
