Circularity Marketing: Our Achievements in H2 2021
Earlier in the year, we published a round-up of our learnings and achievements in Q1 + Q2 of 2021. As 2022 begins, now is the ideal time to take a look back and see what we achieved with circularity marketing in the latter part of 2021:
New Specialisms and Services
Marketing Services for Sustainable Cities
Sustainability is no longer solely an environmental issue. As the need for change accelerates, we’re adopting more eco-friendly lifestyles and living in a more environmentally conscious way. To facilitate this, new infrastructures, residences and commercial sites are needed, which is why sustainable cities are a top priority in countries all over the world.

In 2021, Orange Bird launched dedicated marketing services to sustainable city developers, architects, consultants and visionaries. Already working with companies and individuals operating within this area, we’re thrilled to provide support to professionals and organisations who are making urban environments increasingly sustainable. To learn more about our sustainable cities services or to talk to us about an upcoming project, get in touch with the team now!
Circularity Marketing for Eco-Fashion
‘Fast fashion’ has a devastating environmental impact, which is why sustainable alternatives are essential. Consumers are demanding more eco-friendly choices when it comes to their style and, fortunately, designers, manufacturers and retailers are listening.
With Orange Bird’s specialist eco-fashion marketing services, sustainable brands can access the marketing expertise and experience they need to launch, grow and succeed in this competitive industry. If you want your eco-fashion brand to fly high in 2022, drop us a line!
Welcoming New Team Members
We’re always happy to welcome talented new birds to our flock and, in mid-to-late 2021, we were lucky enough to bring three new marketers on board!
Alex the Catbird, Darya the Ibis and Jenny the Egret joined the Orange Bird team, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience with them. Their combined specialisms of SEO, content creation, product management, market research, web development and client success complement our existing skill set and strengthen our ability to provide holistic circularity marketing services across a number of sectors.
Just like the rest of our flock, Alex, Darya and Jenny are customer-focused, value-driven and passionate about creating a sustainable future. To learn more about how we use our skills to support green businesses, get in touch with the team today!
Onboarding New Clients
In Q3 + Q4 2021, we welcomed two new clients to the agency: Climeon and Cascade Drives. Both based in Sweden, they’re leveraging our multinational, multi-language sustainable marketing services to increase brand awareness, generate leads and expand their reach.
A leading heat waste recovery cleantech company, Climeon develops innovative Heat Power Systems for use in maritime, industrial, oil and gas and geothermal applications. Turning waste heat into an asset, Climeon’s technology significantly reduces carbon emissions in industries that have a notoriously heavy footprint.

With support from Orange Bird, Climeon is increasing engagement within its target audiences, welcoming new leads and boosting their presence across social media. From site optimisation and content marketing to PPC and buyer personas, we’re on hand to provide the specialist assistance required.
We are extremely happy and honoured to serve Climeon and, in this way, indirectly, take part in the clean energy revolution; Climeon seems to be happy too! 😊
Cascade Drives is a cleantech company that replaces hydraulic drives and cylinders with next generation electromechanical ones. Currently, Cascade Drives is serving OEMs across numerous industries, including:
- Oil & Gas
- Transport and vehicles
By providing a more sustainable alternative to traditional hydraulic drivers and cylinders, Cascade Drives is helping businesses and industries achieve their net-zero targets. Furthermore, this next gen technology also increases productivity, reduces maintenance costs, extends battery range, eradicates the need for hydraulic oil and can reduce energy consumption by up to 60%.

Eager to increase brand awareness and generate leads, Cascade Drives called upon Orange Bird to develop, implement and manage bespoke social media marketing (SMM) on its behalf.
Reaching a range of buyer personas across its target industries, we’re using carefully selected channels to engage CTOs, Technical Managers, Electrification Managers, Innovation Managers, Sustainability Managers, Product Managers, Purchasing Managers and other high-level decision makers.
We’re super excited and proud to be supporting Cascade Drives with B2B sustainability marketing services and are inspired by their revolutionary tech. To learn more about their products, why not connect on LinkedIn?
Delivering Value to Clients

Hosting at the International Chamber of Commerce’s Climate Forum
In November 2021, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) held the ‘Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business’ Forum, during the UN Climate Change Conference 2021, COP26.
Orange Bird was personally invited to host a panel discussion, proposing ‘Can we use tech to connect skilled specialists and organisations for effective climate action?’, as the topic. Our founder and CEO, Alena Kuzniatzova, and Product Manager, Jenny Watkins, hosted the panel discussion, which identified key perspectives, goals and challenges for employers and job seekers within the climate movement.
Watch the Orange Bird panel discussion now:
In the second half of 2021, we’ve invested a lot of effort and resources into a Sustainability Movement platform and a Sustainable Real Estate platform. The former platform unites organisations, jobseekers, freelancers, agencies, investors and accelerators focused on climate action, while the latter is designed to showcase information and opportunities for everyone who’s interested in climate-resilient real estate.
We have not launched them online just yet and welcome partnerships and co-investment opportunities from other people and organisations who are concerned about uniting the climate movement and/or about spreading awareness about sustainable, future-proofed real estate. If any of these topics resonate with you, drop us a line!
Getting into the Festive Spirit
When 2021 drew to a close, as many of the Orange Birds as possible gathered together to celebrate our very own ‘Green Xmas’ in a very special place!
The ‘Greenhouse’ circular restaurant in Utrecht, NL, has an urban farm on-site (just like a real greenhouse!) and operates an 80:20 concept, serving 80% vegetables and fruits. The Dutch Orange Bird team enjoyed a sensational (and sustainable) meal before testing their mettle at a ‘Green Escape’ game.

To win, we needed to solve 9 puzzles focused on finding solutions to Sustainable Development Goals within 60 minutes. Not only did we have a lot of fun, but we picked up some interesting facts too. Did you know…
- An effective solution to SDG1 (no poverty) is microfinancing?
- Governments need to introduce healthcare insurance to achieve SDG3 (good health and well-being)?
- The first step to SDG5 (gender equality) is eradicating child marriages?
Our success within the game even means that the organisers will plant a mangrove tree on our behalf. Did you know that mangroves are the most useful trees in terms of ecology?

We hope all of our customers, supporters and subscribers enjoyed the festive season as much as we did. Leave a comment below and let us know what tweaks you made to make your Christmas more sustainable!
