E-Shaped Carton Calls Out Environmentally Friendly Position

Simple and direct, new packaging in the shape of an 'E' for E-Cloth reusable microfiber cleaning cloths cuts through the clutter of cleaning products, offering a chemically-free way to clean.

E-Cloth, a Boston-based brand of premium, eco-friendly reusable microfiber cleaning cloths, has introduced a new brand positioning and look created by Pearlfisher. Using only water, E-Cloth products trap, hold, and eliminate dirt, and, according to the company, are proven to kill 99% of bacteria where cotton cloths and chemical products kill only 66%.

According to Pearlfisher, E-Cloth’s new identity cuts through the jargon of a confusing and crowded category with extreme simplify, an idea that is born out of the product itself. A transformative brand expression—a packaging structure that takes the form of an upper-case “E” places a bold and single-minded emphasis on the brand’s hitherto and most underutilized brand asset.

Ashleigh Steinhobel, Senior Strategist for Pearlfisher, says, “We know that people are trying to be more conscious and considered when choosing their cleaning products, but we’re still overloaded with options, have cleaning cupboards full of plastic bottles, and an approach that sees us still overly reliant on chemicals, or actually, just moving the dirt around.

E Cloth 2“The big opportunity for E-Cloth is to challenge everything we think we know about household cleaning, driving a shift away from our chemically-enhanced ‘spray and wipe’ culture and changing our mindset from excess to essential by unlocking the power of microfiber and water. Visually this comes to life through a design expression that gives meaning to the first letter of the brand’s name, ‘E,’ cutting through with extreme simplicity to stand out as today’s most purposeful and definitive go-to cleaning brand.”

Explains Rich Wilson, Design Director for Pearlfisher, “Across the range, we’ve used the brand’s ‘E’ wordmark as a strong hook that visually manifests into a distinctive packaging format. It also verbally manifests into an ownable language that defines and spells out E-Cloth’s many and varied qualities: ‘easy,’ ‘efficient,’ ‘environmental,’ and ‘enduring.’ This language is used on- and off-pack across the brand’s website, social media channels, and advertising campaigns to communicate the brand’s point of difference in a highly saturated market.”

Marketing Manager for E-Cloth, Anthony Vann, says, “Our new, modern identity and innovative packaging design is ready to sit pride of place on people’s shelves. Pearlfisher has done an excellent job of making E-Cloth stand out and in communicating the brand’s USP [unique selling proposition] of being a more desirable and sustainable way of cleaning.”

The new-look E-Cloth is available in all major retailers as well as online.
