Detroit, MI (November 17, 2020) – MK Advisors, a woman-owned small business which enables and enhances the adoption of net-zero technologies, today announced a partnership agreement with the Environmental Media Association (EMA), a diverse subsection of entertainment industry influencers, entrepreneurs in business, and green icons dedicated to the mission of promoting environmental progress. The global strategic partnership allows the Environmental Media Association (EMA) to assist in the expansion of MK Advisor’s presence in South Africa and in the Pacific Islands.
“We are excited to partner with EMA because through their innovative mission,” said Michelle Klassen Merrigan, Founder and President of MK Advisors. “EMA has successfully threaded together the environmental community with those who have a responsible platform and a personal mission to create a collective movement for sustainable change.”
The collaboration leverages the respective strength of MK Advisor’s voice in its ventures, such as the soon-to-be-launched Mana Boxes. These quarterly subscription boxes feature handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces created by local women artisans in South Africa. Each item is carefully handmade by a woman entrepreneur or artisan, and every subscription empowers these women to continue to support their families, communities and future growth of their businesses. In the wake of COVID-19, many small business owners across the world are struggling to make ends meet. Mana Boxes strives to support some of those who are most in need, all while providing unique decor, fashion, and conversation-starting pieces. Learn more about Mana at bit.ly/ManaBoxes.
