Chilly's: Dear big water – if you can't beat them, lead them

Chilly's, a reusable bottle brand, created prototypes of its bottles and reskinned them to fit big water brands in an attempt to form a partnership on World Refill Day in the UK and get consumers talking about the brand and reusability.

Chilly's "Dear Big Water": If You Can't Beat Them, Lead Them.

No beanstalk falling to the ground.

The truth is, there are other ways for challenger brands to win.

And this is one of them.

A brand that gave its Goliath a helping hand, not a slingshot.

And in doing so, found a completely new way to win.
