VisionDirect Announced as a Finalist in the 4th Annual Shorty Social Good Awards with their #ReefCycle Campaign


VisionDirect has been nominated as a finalist for the 4th Annual Shorty Social Good Awards with their #ReefCycle Campaign

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, October 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Shorty Social Good Awards recognizes individuals and organizations producing the best cause marketing campaigns. The #ReefCycle campaign, an upcycling solution to remove harmful gill nets in the Great Barrier Reef is produced by VisionDirect and WWF Australia has been selected as a finalist for the category, Best Business-NGO Partnership.

#ReefCycle was launched by VisionDirect in July 2019 in collaboration with WWF Australia. The purpose of this campaign was to raise awareness for the endangered marine life in the Great Barrier Reef. It features sunglasses, a product made of recycled commercial gill nets, which has been removed by WWF’s supporters.

Dermot O’Gorman, WWF Australia’s CEO said: “What a story behind these sunglasses – plastic once used to kill marine life becomes a product to protect your eyes. They are ideal for people who value saving wildlife, sustainability, and creative reuse. If unwanted nets are upcycled, instead of dumped, we can reduce the pollution choking our wildlife.”

VisionDirect’s CEO, David Menning, said that upcycling old nets are another way to give back to the community and unlock “a circular economy in eyewear”.

“We’re benefiting the environment by taking discarded materials that damage wildlife and creating something sustainable and worthwhile,” he added.

The initiative has been nominated for 3 other advertising and PR awards: Best Advocacy Campaign for PRIA’s Golden Target Awards, Best Campaign for Not-for-Profit for ADMA’s AC&E Awards, and Best Content Marketing Strategy of the Year for B&T’s Awards.

As a result of a clever marketing campaign, #ReefCycle has reached more than 7 million people and surpassed its original goal of 1000 pre-order to bring recycled sunglasses into production. Independent research found that people who were exposed to the campaign are more likely to engage in ocean-saving behaviors and adopt environmental protection activities into their communities.

The Top 80 Franchise for Veterans Announced by Franchise Business Review


Guide to the Top Franchises for Veterans

Guide to the Top Franchises for Veterans

Independent Survey of Veteran Franchise Owners Reveals the Best Franchise Opportunities Based Exclusively on Owner Satisfaction

The 80 companies named in this year’s report received the highest ratings from the veterans who own them on our independent satisfaction survey.”

— Eric Stites, founder and CEO, Franchise Business Review

PORTSMOUTH, NH, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Franchise Business Review, an independent market research firm that benchmarks franchisee satisfaction, has announced the list of the Top Franchises for Veterans for 2019.

Franchise Business Review, the leading research firm serving the franchise sector, provides ratings of franchise opportunities based solely on survey research that measures franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes rankings of the top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as guides throughout the year ranking the top franchises in specific sectors.

To identify the companies on the list of Top Franchises for Veterans, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months of data from over 25,000 franchise owners, of which just over 10% were veterans, representing over 250 brands. Franchisees were surveyed on their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.

Franchisees were asked 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

The data revealed that eight out of 10 veteran franchise owners would recommend their franchise company to another franchise candidate and indicate that they trust and respect their franchisor.

“The reality is that very few of the thousands of franchise opportunities available today are rated highly by their franchise owners,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “That’s the whole reason we do what we do, and that is to help prospective franchisees understand which franchises are the best opportunities, based on the actual performance and satisfaction of franchise owners. The 80 companies named in this year’s report received the highest ratings from the veterans who own them on our independent satisfaction survey.”
