Water bottle design to raise money for environmental charities
on Thursday,April 22,2010 20:04
In celebration of the 40 year anniversary of both Earth Day and the company's founding, Finlandia Vodka has announced four new water bottle designs to benefit global environmental programs.
The graphic elements of the bottles were designed by Finnish graphic artist Klaus Haapaniemi. They represent aspects of Finland's heritage, including the midnight sun which shines for 73 days each year, Norse mythology, barley fields and fresh glacial water.
The bottles will sell for $28 each, and the profits will be split among four different environmental protection groups.
Finlandia associate creative director Jennie Meador said that "the money raised will provide for some tremendous projects around the globe," adding that Haapaniemi's designs would give the fundraising efforts a major boost.
"His designs have brought our brand stories to life. And, with proceeds going to such great charities, this program really respects the nature of the Finnish spirit of sustainable living," she said.
Finlandia will start selling the water bottles at their website on May 3.
