Piknik to Launch Innovative Sustainable Food Containers at The Inspired Home Show 2020

Busy schedules and a lack of healthy take-out options make living a health-conscious and sustainable lifestyle on-the-go difficult. As parents and busy professionals ourselves, the Piknik team has experienced the challenge of trying to pack healthy meals on-the-go first-hand. After a lot of brainstorming, research, and innovation, we’re so excited to launch Piknik at The Inspired Home Show 2020. Our innovative thermal food container, sustainable bamboo cutlery set, and durable cotton Piknik carrying bag, officially hit the market in summer 2020 and we can’t wait to show them off to housewares industry leaders, buyers, and influencers in Chicago! 

What We’re Showcasing:

We’re so excited for housewares experts to be some of the first to experience our eco-friendly food storage containers. Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll see...

Piknik Thermal Food Container

  • Our exciting new thermal food containers are the latest in stylish and sustainable foodware. The containers are copper-lined, food-grade, stainless steel, double-walled, and vacuum-insulated. The wide, shallow bowl shape allows for all types of food and utensils and keeps food hot or cold for hours. No more plastic! Consumers will also love the bold color options, including red, white, blue and grey. 

    Piknik Cotton Bag (Sustainability)

    • If you’re looking to cut back on plastics and waste, then our cotton bags are the perfect accessory for any Piknik container. The bags are made of 100% natural raw cotton, making the bags both sustainable and reusable. They’re designed to fit 1 or 2 Piknik containers and the round bottom and easy-carry handles provide added convenience.

      Piknik Bamboo Cutlery 

      • Our bamboo cutlery not only looks great but it’s made from 100% natural bamboo, so it’s reusable and eco-friendly as well. The stylish set comes with a fork, knife, spoon, and chopsticks to meet all your dietary and dining needs. Store them in a stylish and sustainable bag made from natural cotton and linen fibers.

      We’ve taken the best of what’s available from other foodware products and created a sustainable, innovative new way for consumers to support their commitment to a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.  

      Our wide, shallow bowl-shaped container was thoughtfully designed with sustainability, style, and innovation in mind.
