FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Apple Rush Company, Inc.

Apple Rush Company, Inc. (Otcpink:APRU), a leading player in the functional beverage industry, proudly announces it has cleared up final details of brand ownership with Bob Corr and Corr Brands, Inc. Tony Torgerud, CEO of Apple Rush, has negotiated a historical closing on the rights and trademarks of Corr Brands, Inc. In the transaction, Bob Corr has agreed to transfer the rights of the Corr Brands, Inc. trademarks and to forgo any royalties from previous agreements to give Tony and Apple Rush the best opportunity to succeed moving forward. Tony Torgerud said, “I have been negotiating for a year with Bob and he finally felt it was time to work out an agreement that would benefit everyone. Over the next couple months, all the required paperwork will be filed for transference and updates on all intellectual property held by Corr Brands, Inc. Not having to pay royalties will add thousands to the bottom line.” This agreement solidifies the future of the “Rush” family of brands that have been in the market since 1972. Bob Corr stated, “I want to see Apple Rush succeed and I feel the timing is right to get this deal done. I retired a long time ago and it is now time to write the next chapters of this story and with Apple Rush having its own production capabilities and its own tunnel pasteurizer, it is an opportunity that shouldn’t be wasted. I have given up hundreds of thousands of dollars in royalties, licensing fees and shares to enhance shareholder value.” With our pilot production abilities, we hope to do some reformulations to introduce a 2024 version of Ginseng Rush and the relaunch of the original Apple Rush flavor line. Apple Rush has held a license for 13 states and International distribution for the last 8 years and now owns the IP without paying the $5,000 per state license, another bottom line gain for all of our stockholders. About The Apple Rush Company, Inc.

Fliphead: Redefining Fashion with Upcycled Garments and Couture

Spark Metro

In a fashion landscape increasingly defined by sustainability and conscious consumption, one brand stands out for its innovative approach to upcycling and eco-conscious couture. Fliphead, an Indian-based fashion label founded by two designers, Saumya from India and Mihkel from Estonia, is making waves in the industry with its transformative philosophy and commitment to reducing waste. Fliphead's journey began with a simple yet powerful idea: to reimagine fashion by giving new life to discarded materials. Through meticulous craftsmanship and a keen eye for design, Saumya and Mihkel have turned this vision into a reality, creating stunning garments that are both stylish and sustainable. At the heart of Fliphead's ethos is the concept of upcycling – the process of repurposing old or unused materials into new, high-quality products. By utilizing materials that would otherwise end up in landfills, Fliphead not only minimizes its environmental impact but also adds a unique and eclectic flair to its collections. One of Fliphead's flagship offerings is its range of festival clothes, which are designed to capture the vibrant spirit of India's diverse cultural celebrations. From colorful saris transformed into flowy dresses to intricately embroidered jackets crafted from vintage textiles, each piece tells a story of creativity and craftsmanship. In addition to its ready-to-wear collections, Fliphead also offers a couture service that is truly one-of-a-kind. Catering to clients who crave individuality and sustainability, the brand's couture pieces are made exclusively from upcycled materials, ensuring that each garment is as eco-conscious as it is luxurious. What sets Fliphead apart from other fashion labels is its unwavering commitment to sustainability and ethical practices. From sourcing materials locally to partnering with artisans who share their values, Saumya and Mihkel are dedicated to creating a positive impact on both the environment and the communities they serve. As consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental and social implications of their purchasing decisions, brands like Fliphead are leading the way towards a more sustainable future for fashion. With their innovative approach and dedication to upcycling, Saumya and Mihkel are not just changing the way we think about clothes – they're changing the industry itself.
