Toilet paper brand Charmin is leaving no stone unturned to provide a colorful ambiance even in your toilets. Joining in the seasonal spirit of tree lightings and window displays, Charmin decorated its fifth-annual seasonal restrooms in New York City by decking the stalls with a colorful array of toilet seat covers.
Moreover, the Procter & Gamble (P&G) brand had recently roped in beauty queen Kim Kardashian for New York residents and a crowd of excited holiday shoppers to officially open the fifth consecutive year of the Charmin Restrooms.
These restrooms will offer a free, clean and family-friendly place to “enjoy the go” during this busy holiday shopping season. (Read: Kim Kardashian Gets into Charmin Restrooms)[ Also Read: Period and Ovulation Mobile App for Women ]
The new designs, created on Kohler-donated seat covers, were crafted by participants in this year’s Charmin Go Nation competition. Erica C. representing Arizona was declared the challenge winner based on the judging criteria of creativity and state/district pride.
The Charmin Go Nation challenge, in which passionate potty-goers from across the country are vying for a chance to win the title of Charmin King or Queen of the Throne and take home a $50,000 stipend, began on Nov. 23 – opening day for the Charmin Restrooms – and will continue through Dec. 28.[ Also Read: Jennifer Lopez to Promote L’Oreal Paris ]
