Happy National Coffee Day! How do you take your java? We just like “iced” coffee!
Did you know the White House came to IceStone? Back in 2011, Nancy Sutley, then-Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, toured our facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard as part of a push to urge industrial companies to recycle and adopt other green measures. Local television station NY1 was there to capture the historic moment! #tbt
What’s in A Name?
Well, around here, it’s a celebration! We recently unveiled to the IceStone team the moniker for our newest color, formerly known as “619.” If you’ve seen our other social media channels, like Instagram and Facebook, you know we’ll make any excuse for a fancy cake, so we held a christening of sorts for the new hue. You’ll have to wait a few weeks for the big public reveal, but here’s some sneak peeks from our party!
Yes, IceStone headquarters may be located inside a factory, but we can get kinda fancy when it comes to lunch! We call it #LunchOnIce, and often it’s a painstaking venture to stage a perfectly crafted #foodie shot, especially when hunger calls. But there are so many colorful, durable surfaces to dine upon around our offices, it’s now become an art!
Tonight, the NFL kicks off its 95th season, signaling to some, the real end of summer. We’ve been celebrating the gridiron’s green commitments, most closely to home with our Alpine White’s installation at the newly- LEED Gold certified Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Check out our other social platforms this week for more interesting details on venues, teams and organizations going the extra (green) mile in sustainability and energy efficiency.

"More than trees grow in Brooklyn." That was current borough president Eric Adams’ sentiment during last week’s "Brooklyn Made" press conference. The event signaled the launch of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s initiative to certify businesses, brands and products based on a set of factors measuring their commitment to the globally-popular borough. IceStone was part of the initial class of "Brooklyn Made" inductees — we’re silver status! Read more from Brooklyn Paper.
how we feel.
Sucks to be the earth
Factories are such magical places…and it takes a good eye, perfect timing and great light to capture unique moments not everyone gets to see. Our intern, Michael (#IceMike) documented his travels around our Brooklyn Navy Yard facility during his short tenure here and his takeover of our Instagram account. He was able to shoot some great photos of our raw materials and the process of bringing IceStone to life. We wish Mike the best as he heads off to college, and we invite him to come back anytime!
