MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
Earlier this year, when Misty Artesian Water relocated from Louisville, Kentucky, to new headquarters at 6595 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, the company refreshed its social agenda as well. Tapping into Atlanta’s abundant resources, the brand launched its nonprofit division, Ribbons of Awareness, to boost philanthropic endeavors around the country. Through unique product packaging that features ribbon-shaped bottles in a rainbow of colors, the bottled water company supports more than 1,000 causes, from cancer to mental health. The Mystic Entities, Ltd. subsidiary also donates a portion of annual sales to those in need and offers partnership opportunities to increase awareness and raise funds.
