今夏蚊虫来袭,可不要担心,近日,斯里兰卡的Mawbima周报发行了一种“驱蚊报纸”,读报还可防蚊,真是一举两得!

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

In Sri Lanka, where the deadly dengue virus – born from the flying pests – has reached epidemic proportions, Mawbima (a nationwide newspaper) together with Leo Burnett Asia, initiated a campaign to do its part in the fight against the deadly disease.
During the country's national dengue week, Mawbima produced the first mosquito repellent newspaper in which all of the type was printed with an ink combined with citronella essence.
Though the publication increased the copies, the edition sold out with a sales increase of 30%, and the overall readership rising by 300,000.

在斯里兰卡,来源于飞虫身上的致命登革热病毒肆掠,Mawbima(一家全国性的报纸)与李奥贝纳广告亚洲分公司共同发起一场运动,参与抗击这种致命疾病。
在斯里兰卡全国防登革热周,Mawbima发行了第一份驱蚊报纸,所有的印刷文字都用一种混合了香茅油精华的墨汁印刷。
虽然出版增加了印刷份数,但是售出的数量却增加了30%,总的读者人数增加了30万。
