Our 1% Pledge

OUR 1% PLEDGE

We are committed to supporting our community. 1% of every order will be donated to a non-profit organization. See more on your contribution here.

Let's take a sustainable step together. 

As a brand that values sustainability, we are always seeking ways to make our world a better place whether it be through promoting healthy lifestyles with our Bento Boxes or supporting the planet with reusable containers. We also believe that uniting together and supporting each other is the only way to make a better world tomorrow. It might be small but every step counts and we know that any positive actions can lead to a better tomorrow.

Starting December 2020, we will be donating 1% of our sales at TAKENAKA BENTO BOX online store to organizations who have been working so hard for our communities, planets, and people. Let's take steps together to protect our beautiful planet, to support people in need, to make a truly diverse world for the future. We will carefully choose and donate to organizations who we can trust, and you can see who we donate each month on this page.

We're so thrilled with contributing to the community together with you. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or feedback. Many thanks to all of you for your contribution with us. It means a lot.

Many Healthy Blessings,
TAKENAKA BENTO BOX

We have come very far but we’ve still got work to do. In order to reach equal representation in our lifetime, we need to build a Community of women who are curious about the possibilities of public leadership.

We are shocked and saddened by the recent increase in hate crimes and racially motivated attacks against the AAPI community.  The world is a colorfully diverse place. As a global brand rooted in Japanese culture, we respect all identities and embrace the beauty of diversity -- and seek to spread our love of bringing people together through the Japanese bento box. 
To support the movement, we'll be using our 1% Pledge to donate to the non-profit organizationStop AAPI Hate @stopaapihate, with the goal of being a cultural bridge to embrace diversity and spread awareness. 
Let’s support the AAPI community together.

No child should go hungry in a nation as wealthy as ours. But millions of kids are living with hunger right now. For June and July, we looked to do our part by donating 1% of our profits to the organization. As kids around the country gear up to get back to school, let’s help support a healthy foundation for children everywhere. No Kid Hungry is a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. After 25 years of successfully investing in local nonprofits and helping find the best approaches to eradicating poverty and hunger, Share Our Strength launched No Kid Hungry in 2010.
