AMITYVILLE, NY, April 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire - Iconic Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: ICNB) (“Iconic” or the “Company”), a leader in the development, design and delivery of alcohol and non-alcohol beverages, announced that it is kicking off its “Tree Planting Campaign for Earth Day 2022” on April 22nd. Through May 31st, Iconic will collaborate with the international, environmental non-profit tree-planting charity, One Tree Planted, to plant a tree in California in the areas devastated by the wildfires for every bottle of Bellissima it sells through splashwines.com.
Iconic’s “Better-for-the-planet” slogan is a key component of its brand promises. This is the second year that Iconic has embarked on its tree-planting campaign with One Tree Planted, successfully planting 10,000 trees in 2021.
In addition, TopPop, Iconic’s wholly-owned subsidiary, is an advocate of green initiatives. Its flexible pouch packaging delivers up to an 85% reduction in packaging materials versus polyethylene terephthalate plastic (PET) bottles. Every pouch purchased saves 3 bottles of waste. TopPop takes on various other methods to use less energy, waste, and material resources, including utilizing 100% solar energy to power one of its facilities.
“A key part of our brand promise is to be better-for-the-planet. We are thrilled to kick off our tree planting program on Earth Day for the second year in a row,” said Iconic Chief Executive Officer Larry Romer. “Planting 10,000 trees last year was an amazing success and we hope to exceed that this year. Yet, this is just a small part of all we continue to do to for the earth. Finding ways to be more efficient, more environmentally friendly, and more sustainable is imperative for us. Along with several of our products and manufacturing facilities taking sustainable packaging and clean energy to another level, we also continue looking for strategic partners to help us advance our mission. We can’t thank One Tree Planted enough for their efforts and for the great reforestation work they do around the world.”
