Littering, de-forestation, plastic pollution…all of those things and more occur on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, not many people are aware of the seriousness of these things. So when it comes to raising awareness, sometimes the best way to grab someone’s attention, especially regarding environmental issues, is through humor.
These genius environmental commercials do just that —they grab your attention with humor, and make you remember how very real these environmental issues truly are.
Though a bit quirky, these commercials are educational and memorable. In a strange, but good way, they make you remember to be a more conscious person when it comes to the environment, and that’s a good thing.
So take a few minutes out of your day and watch a few—laughter is good for the soul.
1. Noice: Zero Waste Toothpaste

We love this hilarious commercial because it stars the co-founder of Noice (a zero waste toothpaste company) and how transparent they are with their ingredients—they hide nothing—just like Clement. If you’d like to try it out, it’s available on Amazon with a subscription option!
2. Honest Government Ad: We’re F***’d
This hilarious environmental commercial is brutally honest. A government spokesperson showcases all the horrible environmental issues going on throughout the world but later on encourages people to do something about it. The highlight of this video is toward the end, where we’re reminded of people trying to raid Area 51 instead of focusing on more important things. It’s definitely worth a watch.
3. Real Men Do Laundry
This environmental commercial is all about switching to eco-friendly laundry strips which are available on their Tru Earth Store and are much kinder to your health and the environment. The main character is incredibly cheesy and full of himself which makes this commercial hilarious. The funniest line in this commercial is “every time you click, a baby turtle gets to go to college” (referring to a 30 day free trial).
4. Kia Niro / Hero’s Journey

This environmental commercial stars actress Melissa McCarthy and was played during Super Bowl 51. In this commercial, Melissa keeps getting tasked to save trees, sea creatures and more—unfortunately, she getting hurt in the process which makes this commercial oh so humorous.

This waste management commercial has two dumpsters singing a parody of Sal-N-Peppa’s “What A Man” song, then cracking a cheesy joke. It’s so bad that it makes you chuckle.

This environmental commercial is so awkward that it makes you break down and laugh toward the end. It’s about a guy who is trying to get people to sign a petition to help the environment, but everyone ignores him. Finally, when someone does stop to talk to him, he has no idea what to talk about.
9. Final Straw Commercial

If you’re familiar with the product “Final Straw”, then you’ll love their funny commercial about avoiding plastic straws and opting for reusable ones. The Star of the commercial is a mermaid who kind of just hovers above the ground (mermaid tail and all).

The premise of this environmental commercial is to show the importance of putting trash and recycling products where they belong—in bins and not the ground—“life makes sense when everything is in its place”. You then get a good laugh at different occupations switching places and how awkward it would be in real life if that were to happen.
