NikeGREEN NikeGREEN is a one off retail project by sportswear brand Nike in conjunction with the 2012 Olympics. The project will consist of a mobile guerrilla store which will tour the UK, retailing a new range of footwear from Nike Considered Design, which uses recyclable and sustainable materials. The new range will cover a variety of sports featured at the Olympics and Paralympics, and will be available for the public to purchase from the temporary stores. The concept of NikeGREEN is based around the idea of considerate design. “Brands are no longer turning a blind eye to external factors that might affect their designs, as those external factors such as the environment, the economy, and society is what is shaping products.” (

The guerrilla stores will be disused shipping containers, which will be transformed into mini NIKEtown’s using recycled furniture. The energy to power the stores will be generated by an ‘ongoing marathon and rowing machine’.


NikeGREEN Range The main categories which NikeGREEN will focus on are: - Running - Cycling - Athletics - Basketball - Football - BMX All sports have been chosen for their popularity at the Olympic Games and for their reflective target market to that of Nike. The range will be Limited Edition and will only be available at NikeGREEN stores. 300 pairs of each category will be created, 150 for males, and 150 for females. The retail price will vary between £80.00 and £120.00, with 5% going to the environmental charity ‘Friends of the Earth’. Following the store tour, the range will available through the Nike website during the Paralympic Games and will be based on a bidding system, with any profit above the retail price going to ‘Friends of the Earth’. Due to the technology and material composition of the footwear, the range will take approximately two years to design and manufacture.

Locations NikeGREEN will be placed in 5 main cities across the UK during the Olympics. The locations specifically exclude London as one of the objectives of the project is to bring the Olympics to people across the country. To keep the environmental footprint to a minimum, Ireland will not be included within the campaign. All of the locations have been chosen with a number of considerations: - - - -

Public transport system is efficient; encouraging visitors to reduce their environmental footprint. Each city is easily and quickly accessible from surrounding cities. Each city has a reputable amount of tourists. Each city is popular with younger demographic groups.

The NikeGREEN route has been carefully considered and is the most environmentally friendly.

Shipping Containers Transumerism; a new form of consumerism which relates to a consumer who is affluent, style savvy and likes to be mobile. This consumer movement reinforces the want for mobile retailing. Refurbished shipping containers are fast becoming popular in retail, events and property. The concept relates directly to transumerism, with the idea of ‘travel equating to temporary freedom’. LOT-EK are a New York based architectural firm who pioneered the use of used containers for structural use. The company have created projects for Puma with ‘Puma City’ and clothing brand Uniqlo. Despite LOT-EK being more expensive than an alternative company, the mileage is considerably less. While New York to England is 3471 miles, Singapore (GRANDSTAND location) to England is 6739 miles. This will reduce the environmental impact of sea freight.

Marketing & Promotion Advertising Campaign

Nike’s advertising campaigns are some of the most successful in the world. The ‘Write the Future’ advert for the 2010 Football World Cup set a new world record for viral advertising, achieving 7.8 million views in its first week. The advertising campaign will be created from ‘recycled’ Nike clips and will be approximately 2 minutes long. The closing cut will simply say ‘Just Save It’, with the web address for NikeGREEN. This will encourage viewers to visit the website to explore the project. One of Nike’s iconic traits is innovation, so as TV advertising is now becoming outdated; the campaign will only be shown online. Wieden + Kennedy, Nike’s primary advertising agency, will create the clip. Nike will already pay W+K a retainer for their ongoing work. Project cost: £750/hour Project time: 4 weeks Total Cost: £1,212,800 YouTube Home Page Roadblock (front page of YouTube for 24hrs): £61,690 Home Page Roadblock x 10: £616,900 Nike will already pay Google for CPC’s (cost per clicks).


Promotion A twitter page will be established, which due to Nike’s global reputation, will spread through various networks. Nike will follow celebrities that are known for their active lifestyles, such as Fearne Cotton, Gordon Ramsay and Ellie Goulding. Publications such as Vogue and GQ, and editors like Hilary Alexander will also be followed. Through the following of the above people and organisations, this will encourage them to follow NikeGREEN, and thus their followers, creating a chain reaction. The website,, will feature the advertising campaign, and have links to the facebook and twitter page. The web page will be a sub page of the Nike website. Details on the website will include: Locations: directions Store information: opening and closing times, Reuse-A-Shoe campaign etc Product information Project information Since the range is Limited Edition, visitors to the website can sign up for email alerts for products they like, in regards to how many are left.


Apps The NikeGREEN project will be incorporated into the Nike True City App, with information about the project, and directions to each store. Depending on where the user is, the closest city to their location will be suggested first. From the True City App, there will be a link to the official NikeGREEN App, which users can download free of charge. The NikeGREEN App will offer a range of features, including: - Energy Scorecard: visitors to the store who use the fitness equipment will have their time put onto a scoreboard within the App. - Bookmark Feature: App users will be able to bookmark items which they are interested in. - Athlete Playlists: The playlists, which will be distributed with the packaging within the store, will be available on the App. - Just Save It: The advertising campaign will be included with the App. Both the True City and NikeGREEN apps will have information about the Reuse-A-Shoe campaign, to encourage visitors to the take their old trainers along to the store.


Bloggers Due to the rise and world-wide use of the internet, new forms of journalists have been born: bloggers. NikeGREEN will invite 4 important bloggers to the stores to review and blog about the project. The bloggers being invited are as follows. Susie Lau Susie Lau, known as Susie Bubble has become one of fashion’s most iconic bloggers, and is one of a few bloggers in the world who is able to make an income purely based on advertising through her blog. Based in London, she blogs about everything in the world of fashion, and regularly attends catwalk shows across the globe through invitation only.

Laura Bailey has been known to vocally campaign for ethical and fair trade fashion. Jonathon Baker This blogger produces research for retailers, design companies and industry suppliers. His blog encompasses commercial interior design and visual merchandising. Blogger Expenses: £1000/each = £4000


Guerrilla Marketing Guerrilla Marketing has become an effective method over the years as it aims to get maximum results from minimal resources. NikeGREEN’s guerrilla marketing campaign will involve a flashmob: a group of people who suddenly assemble in a public place for a short amount of time, for entertainment purposes. NikeGREEN’s flashmob will consist of 2 groups of 10 runners who will be jogging through the city centre towards the location of the store from popular destinations, for example; in Newcastle, runners will jog from the train station and Eldon Square (a large shopping centre). The runners will wear Nike running apparel and the new footwear. The apparel will be manufactured using the Nike Considered Design Index, but will look like regular Nike apparel. One of the key elements of this campaign is to maintain Nike’s aesthetic qualities while having the underlying qualities of ‘considered design’. So as to gain attention, text will be printed on the vests with phrases such as: (Front) “Have you seen how big my...” (Back) “ cotton content is?” (Front) “ Did you know ...” (Back) “...I’m made from 8 plastic bottles?” The recruitment process will use the power of social networking to attract running participants. A facebook page will be created, promoting the flashmob, and giving details of information that needs to be submitted from each applicant. NikeGREEN will contact applicants to finalise details. Customised Nike top: RRP £40.00 Manufacture: £10.00 Total: £10.00 x 100 runners = £1000



Packaging As opposed to the conventional shoe box, NikeGREEN footwear will be packaged in a vacuum formed clear recyclable plastic. The design will have an integrated handle at the top and will hinge at the bottom. A small hole in the packaging will allow for a metal chain to be looped through with a USB stick hung from it. The USB stick will be manufactured from recycled materials and will have the NikeGREEN logo and a Limited Edition number laser engraved into it. The USB will include a playlist of 10 songs from a variety of athletes performing at the Olympics. Packaging Material: PVC Cost (inc. VAT): £7.72/unit = £13,896

Transportation Sea Freight As LOT-EK is based in New York, the shipping containers will be shipped from New York to Liverpool using sea freight.

This brochure uses a paper called Dalum Cyclus which is manufactured from 100% recycled materials. “Dalum Papir is known as one of the world’s most environmentally-friendly paper manufacturers, producing fine printing paper based on a 100% recycling concept. This means that only recycled fibres are used in the production of Cyclus, and that all residual products from processing the used fibres are also recycled, e.g. as a raw material for making leached filler and as raw material for the cement industry, and as biological sludge for fertiliser. Our environmental commitment is met through the composition of our products and the production process. Producing fine paper from recycled fibres generates major savings in resources, both in terms of energy and water.�
