What will the Flower Campaign consist of? It will consist of a combination of centralised and decentralised activities.We have developed a central “toolbox”with advertisements,Point of Sale materials, internet-banners, etc. This tool-box will be translated into the different lan-guages by the National Project Managers from Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Denmark and Italy. The toolbox is available for retailers, com-panies and organisations who want to do pro-motional activities for the Flower or for their own Flower-labelled products. If they do this in the Flower week 18-24 October 2004, they can ben-efit from the attention on the Flower created by other campaign activities in schools and shops and by PR activities and advertising.

Why a Flower Campaign? The ecolabel is part of a long term strategy for moving the market towards sustainable produc-tion and consumption. It can only fulfill its objec-tive if it is well known by consumers. The Flower has now reached a point where we have enough labelled products on the shelves to start serious promotional activities aimed at consumers. These activities have to be done in collaboration with license holders,authorities, retailers, con-sumer organisations and other ambassadors.
