The Guardian



Engagement exceeded targets by 300 percent



While sales of coffee, tea, chocolate and other products that featured the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal were increasing, consumers had no idea what the seal meant. 


During a year-long native content campaign in partnership with the and the support of corporate partners Chiquita, Domtar and Avery Dennison, we told behind-the-seal stories. To keep the campaign fresh, we created a series of engaging videos, Follow the Farmer contests, Instagram takeovers, an interactive map and more. Views, likes and shares exceeded benchmarked expectations by 300 percent .

I have been fortunate to work with Carol Goodstein for more than 15 years and have greatly valued her creativity, vision, outstanding storytelling and writing skills. It was under her leadership that we had an award winning and highly successful social media platform with the Guardian, which resulted in an unprecedented level of engagement.
