BERKELEY, Calif (June 17, 2013) – PawNosh, an innovative new glass pet food bowl company, has launched on Kickstarter to help change the way consumers see pet food bowls. While most pet food bowls are plastic, stainless steel, or ceramic, PawNosh bowls are made from glass, which is the only food and beverage packaging material generally recognized as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

PawNosh, created by the husband-and-wife team of Don Takemura and Sachi Ushihara, was developed to fill a much-needed gap in the pet food bowl market. Don and Sachi set out to create their own products after not finding glass pet food bowls that are safe, sustainable, durable, aesthetically pleasing, and made in the USA. All PawNosh glass bowls will be made from 100% post-consumer recycled glass. They will be completely non-toxic, durable enough to be offered with a lifetime warranty against breakage, and designed and handmade in the USA.

The debut product, the PawNosh “Cubby” bowl, is designed for use by one to two cats, or one small dog up to 25 pounds. The second product, the PawNosh “Cubby Deluxe” bowl, is designed for larger dogs. It will retain all of the same great characteristics of the “Cubby” bowl, but will be deeper and wider in size.

“We’re very excited to launch PawNosh on Kickstarter with the hope of changing the way people see pet food bowls,” says PawNosh co-founder, Sachi Ushihara. “We think pet owners will agree that there is no bowl like it currently available in the marketplace. It was also extremely important to us that the bowls were made in the USA to achieve the highest quality possible and to support the U.S. manufacturing industry.”

PawNosh launches on Kickstarter, a crowd funding platform which allows project creators to get their creative and business ideas in front of a mass audience and attract funding from “backers.” Backers are instrumental in helping to turn an idea into reality. They provide financial support and spread the word about the ideas via social networks.
