N A M A R was created by Nataly Neuman and Margie Stein, two friends who shared the same thought: small choices can make a big difference to our health and to our planet. Now, more than ever, we’ve begun to question how we engage with our planet, and each other. For change to occur, every individual needs to do their part. This sustainable, reusable product helps us get one step closer to minimizing the spread of germs and reducing waste to preserve our planet. N A M A R's simple, minimalistic design was created so we all can take the small step to changing the world.
During Margie’s first time out to dinner during the pandemic, she couldn’t help but think “how can I trust that these utensils that I’m using are actually being cleaned and sanitized?” As she was leaving the restaurant, she saw plastic forks and spoons left behind on a grass area where people had just finished eating take-out. This is when the idea of this product was born - an easy, on-the-go, personal and sustainable cutlery set that you can take with you ANYWHERE.
Nataly, with a business background and a Masters in Psychology has always had a deep concern for the environment. Once she heard the idea, she immediately took action. From creating the design to developing the branding, Nataly made sure that N A M A R would become a product that is compact enough to fit in your pocket and impactful enough to make a difference. Our goal is to educate others about the dangers of plastics and to show that sustainability can be luxurious!
