Didn’t get enough of the colorful culinary collection that is #LunchOnIce? Here’s more, snapped on gorgeous slabs of IceStone in White Pearl, Jade Snow and Persimmon (the latter two are discontinued colors). Hungry?
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.

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!
Last week, IceStone participated in an interactive panel conversation entitled “Created In Brooklyn,” at the Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Part of a series, the discussions were curated by local photographer Randy Duchaine, and focused on makers in the borough and how they help make Brooklyn extraordinary. We were joined by a rep from our Navy Yard neighbor, Brooklyn Grange, as well as an artist (Susan Woods) and a violin-maker, Samuel Zygmuntowicz. The well-attended program featured beautiful photographs by Randy, a Q&A session, and a bit of networking afterward. Upon leaving, we caught the tail end of lively swing dancing on the plaza, complete with a jazz band! #GottaLoveBrooklyn
