our story


Bennu is the leader in green social media marketing. Our company was started in 2010 by a diverse group of social entrepreneurs who met while pursuing their MBA’s in New York City. Having previously worked on groundbreaking sustainability projects, the team was united by a common passion: using business to tackle social and environmental problems.

Bennu’s inspiration originated from the disturbing amount of waste – particularly plastic bottles – being sent to landfills as trash. With tens of billions of potentially useful bottles wasted each year, Bennu launched by developing recycled promotional products that prevent landfill dumping, save energy and serve practical consumer needs. At the same time, our goal was to educate people about the environmental, social and economic value of sustainability. Social media presented the ideal communication channel to engage a community who shared our values and beliefs.
