This past Saturday, The Moderns exhibited at the Slow Money Showcase in Brooklyn, New York at The Commons. The day featured presentations by ten entrepreneurs working to protect, preserve and enhance our food systems in sustainable and authentic ways.
For the past 20 years, The Moderns has been deeply committed to the environment, social equity, authenticity and food justice.We believe in the power of branding to bring critical masses of people to a great cause. Have you ever noticed that the products least healthy for people and the planet have the strongest, most recognizable brands? And that the products that are best for people and the planet have weaker, more obscure brands?
We aim to change that. The Moderns want to help the healthiest products compete with the most popular brands out there.
Some of you who were at the event may have also learned that The Moderns is trying to start an office-made movement. We brought our own office-made kombucha tea and compost gift bags to the event. A large bin was filled with our compost so that our visitors could experience the sight, smell and touch of our soil and we filled the compost gift bags individually upon request. In addition to our kombucha and compost, we also do our ow beekeeping, mushroom growing, and have hydroponics in the office. We believe that byimmersing ourselves in these things authentically, we can better understand our clients.
We are thankful for the many new like-minded friends that we made at the event and were inspired by the entrepreneur presentations. Janine participated in one of the afternoon’s panels: Making Your Dream Enterprise into a Real Business: Plan for Success. She shared thoughtful branding insights with the participants and exhibitors.
