What's up from Brooklyn... hope you enjoy!
We shot this in downtown Brooklyn. First time shooting a company video for us. Never knew shooting this would be so much fun...and take so long! We shot all day to get these 60 seconds. Long day, but a good day (except for those parking tickets).
Bklyn Bento on Good Morning America!
True story… Someone reached out claiming to be from Good Morning America (GMA) and mentioned how they absolutely love our products and wanted to feature them on their upcoming Kitchen & Home segment with Tory Johnson’s Deals and Steals.
Being from NY I’m skeptical of random calls like these. I think the call is total BS.
I also have a low tolerance for spammy phone calls but also don’t like hanging up on people. Luckily, I stayed on with them just long enough to realize they really were from ABC’s Network programming! 😱
Some kids dream of cool things like being an astronaut. I’ve always dreamed of this stuff… building a brand, winning sustainable design awards, and getting our products featured on the #1 highest ranking daily talk show!
Feeling so fortunate and blessed for the continued exposure our brand has been getting 🙏
Time to throw back a cold one, enjoy the moment and continue to pack and ship orders! 🍻
And the Winner Is…. Bklyn Bento!!!!!!! 🏆
Can’t believe we just won the SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AWARD at the #NYNOW Trade Show!!!!! Seriously freaking out!!!
We were so honored just to be considered for this award… to take 1st place is beyond exciting!
Big shoutout to the other finalists who were all AMAZING and are running socially responsible companies. So honored to be in the company of others who are also creating sustainable earth friendly products.
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AWARD
“The NY NOW Sustainable Design Award highlights and upholds brands and makers who have embedded sustainability, environmentally-friendly production processes and socially responsible or philanthropic models into their business practice. For the longevity of our planet, these practices are vital”
Time for another round 🍻
Food Jars: Insulated & Double Walled
We have our customers to thank for this product. We love hearing from our customers and value your opinion so much. I guess we have a lot of soup lovers that were buying our bento box. Following our customer's direction we came out with a Stainless Steel, Double Walled, Insulated Food Jar / Thermos that will retain your food's temperature (either Hot or Cold) for hours. And because it's Double-Walled the outside of the Food Jar will never feel Hot or Cold to the touch, and it will not form condensation or "sweat" on the outer wall; keeping your bag and hands dry.
The East River Collection (100% Leak-Proof)
Leak Proof. Oven Safe. Freezer Safe. Dishwasher Safe. These food containers are Leak Proof... for REAL. They won't leak one drop. The body is made of Stainless Steel and the lids are made of 100% Pure LFGB Silicone… the highest quality silicone available. Comes in a 4 Piece Set, 3 Piece Set and 2 Piece Set.
Our first product... the bento
Our humble beginnings began with this 100% Stainless Steel Bento Box. It was our first product... and it's still one of our favorites. As with many things in life, one thing led to the next and before we knew it we found ourselves expanding the product line to include Lunch Bags, Food Jars / Thermos, Stainless Steel Leak-Proof Containers and Bamboo Cutlery. Throughout this journey we continue to stay true to our simple goal of creating well designed, high quality products that are eco-friendly and promote sustainability.
Bklyn Bento At Shope Object's Trade Show (Pier 36 / NYC)
Great time exhibiting at Shoppe Object’s trade show; Pier 36 in downtown NYC. Only regret, never made it to the food truck parked outside. It’s on tomorrow’s agenda!! Thx to all the friends and buyers we met today 💕
Bklyn Bento Featured On CBS News
Thanks to CBS for featuring our bento as a top Lunch Box pick for "Back-To-School"
Logo Gets Burned Into Stainless Steel
No sure why, but we love watching the laser etch into the stainless steel. Reminded us of Pink Floyd's laser shows back in the day (if we remember correctly... haha). Those were good times with good friends. Enjoy the show. You'll want your speakers turned up for this one.
