The world’s leading cider brand, Strongbow Apple Ciders, has launched a new global marketing campaign, called ‘Nature Remix’ together with their agency Cloudfactory. Through a series of coordinated “acts” in seven cities around the world, the campaign aims to reconnect city dwelling consumers with nature, making their everyday environment a more enjoyable place to live.

To launch the Nature Remix campaign, Strongbow Apple Ciders created an orchard in central Johannesburg, South Africa. Local gardeners planted apple trees in a derelict urban space, and built a giant tree whose branches grew through the windows of an abandoned tower block. Filmed by award winning director Fredrik Bond, the first act of the campaign forms the basis of thethe new TV commercial.

All trees used in the campaign were donated to the university fruit garden, bringing nature to the city and leaving a tangible legacy.
