Glasses of Drought

Agency Network: 
April 2019


Turkey is on the brink of serious water shortage, and the brand has launched a huge campaign calling everyone to start saving for future generations. One of the most evident signs of this shortage is the water levels in the lakes, where water levels have seriously dropped. So we have studied the topography of 5 lakes (Seyfe, Suğla, Ilgın, Karataş and Burdur Lakes) and turned their shapes into glasses, each glass representing a lake. The amount of water they hold is also the percentage of the water remaining in those lakes. So, if there’s only 64% of water left in Burdur lake, the glass can also hold that percentage of water.
The glasses were first launched on the 22nd March, World Water Day, which also happens to be the date of the biggest national economic forum; Uludağ Economical Forum.

All the glasses at the event were swapped with our glasses. Here we reached 2.200 people the major opinion leaders of the country: Members of the government, top academicians, company CEO’s and all the news channels. We hacked the event. As they tried to drink water out of a shallow glass, they could see our website.

Nice idea very well executed.
Not sure if the brand is relevant though.
Ok they will answer that using a washing machine saves more water than hand washing.
But still, a bit far fetched to say the least.
