For Good Campaigns #11
Break The Pattern – Electrolux
Forsman & Bodenfors initiated the Break The Pattern campaign together with Electrolux. They are using technology and up-cycling designers to create a new life for garments, by turning them into new creations. In this video, they depict heartbreaking views of the Atacama Desert in Chile where more than 59,000 tons of garment waste from Europe, the United States, and Asia end up, making it the second largest clothing graveyard in the world.
Except For Me – World Rises
In the Except For Me campaign, EP+Co and Worth Rises are working together to minimalize the information gap concerning the 13th Amendment, which legalizes the enslavement of incarcerated people. Between the days of 1 to 17 September 2022, they will share a different narrative.
In addition to this, photographs of Johnny Perez were published in New York and Philadelphia. Perez shares the perspective of an incarcerated person, based on his own experiences. On the final day of the campaign, Mural Arts Philadelphia, Anti-Coalition Against Recidivism, and LatinoJustice are organizing an event. This will include a public art installation designed to showcase the stories, faces, and voices of those who were formerly legally enslaved in the United States.

Since you’re here…
Our mission is to monitor Advertising to make certain that companies obey ethical standards of trustworthiness and transparency while communicating their commitment to addressing the great challenges of the New Millennium. From climate emergency to social inequality through all the issues included in the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda, we monitor the consistency of their statements, if they are ‘walking the talk’. With rising misinformation and commercial ownership, independent information is more and more rare. We think citizens deserve access to accurate analyses with integrity at their heart, so we can all make critical decisions about our lives, health and enviroment – based on fact, not fiction.
Our editorial independence means our content agenda is set only to voice our opinions, supported by in-depth research, free from any political and commercial bias, never influenced by interested owners or shareholders (which we don’t have). It means we can stand up to mainstream and give a voice to those less heard. We hope this will motivate you to make a contribution in support of our open, independent journalism. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support BeIntelligent from as little as €5 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
