We are now delighted to reveal the winning quote from our global #TagOurBag competition. Taking out the trash is now set to become a whole lot more fun for millions of people around the world thanks to the wit and creativity of Katy Edling, also known as The Quiet Rabbit, from Texas, USA.
Our international #TagOurBag competition challenged our consumers to create a witty, bold and inspirational message for our range of bin bags. We wanted to find out what makes our consumers tick, if size really matters or if perhaps less is more?
The winning quote ‘Making room for bigger dreams’ captured the imaginations of our judging panel.
Katy’s quote was selected from over 2,000 entries from all over the globe. Chosen by the #TagOurBag judging panel consisting of Anne Slaats Brabantia’s Communications Manager; Mechteld Petersen Brabantia’s Value Director, Joris Smeets Product Designer at Brabantia and key bloggers Laura Hitchcock from LittleStuff, Jo Yana from deco-design.biz, Irene Schampaert from Puur Confituur and Femke Dekker-ter Meulen from Femkeido.
Katy, a Visual Artist, Graphic Designer and Stylist, is known as The Quiet Rabbit, an art mission in which she documents her uninterrupted flow of peaceful and encouraging thoughts and quotes. Speaking about her winning quote she said: “Out with the old, in with the new! Whether you’re emptying your kitchen of outdated foods or simply decluttering your space, it’s nice to remind yourself that you’re making room for bigger and better things. I hope this little quote inspires you to keep your dreams in focus, no matter how small – because whenever you use your Brabantia waste bag, you make more room for YOU!”
She’s won up to € 1,000 worth of Brabantia Bins and will also receive a year’s supply of PerfectFit bags. Her quote and name will appear on millions of bin bags throughout the world, and will be available online and in stores at the beginning of next year.
