The Brief

For over 15 years, Fenesta has been providing Noise and Dust free homes through its innovative high-performance products, helping improve lifestyle of millions across India. Over the years, Fenesta through its targeted campaigns has stood against the key pollutants which invade homes taking away the much-needed peace and tranquility. According to research, people switch to Fenesta due to various reasons, however, Noise always tops the list. 

The Alarming Situation: 3 cities of India are among the World’s Nosiest 

  • Noise pollution is an often-overlooked source of environmental stress that can raise your risk of serious health conditions, including heart disease. Research has shown that there has been an increase in hearing loss in adolescents during the past three decades. What is even more frightening is that a loss of hearing may go undetected for many years after chronic exposure to high levels of noise. The effects of particles from air pollution are largely to do with inflammation, whereas noise exposure increases stress levels leading to physiological arousal, such as raised heart rate and blood pressure.
  • These health problems can affect all age groups, especially children. Many children who live in a noisy environment have been found to suffer from stress and other problems

Key Strategic Questions:

  • Since Fenesta has stood against noise for over a decade, can we take it forward to start a movement?
  • Can we create a ‘Social Property’ beyond the brand story?
  • Can we trigger a thought which can start a movement against noise?
  • Can we own an idea which can be sustained, expanded and make an impact in fighting the most unnoticed pollutant?

The Idea:

There is enough research to illustrate how constant exposure to noise can affect our physical and emotional health. But the real issue is that we always blame each other. It’s never us but them. We started this movement to bring about a change which begins with us. We urged people to Share their Voice against Noise.  Do their bit and Be part of the movement.


Communication Strategy:

Highlight the situations arising out of most common behavioral and cultural practices which have become the biggest contributor of the rising level of noise in the cities across India. Break the mindset of – Not-me-but-them- attitude to pass the message based on facts to make it authentic and amicable
