Let’s be real — aside from the intimate quality time, scenic views and good music, the best part about road trips are the snacks. Unfortunately, many grab-and-go snacks don’t prioritize health or eco-friendliness. Don’t fret, we’ve got you. Here are a few brands that put the planet and people first. Oh, and their snacks are top of the line.
This climate-neutral brand (a brand that offsets all of its carbon emissions by investing in carbon reduction or removal projects) has a wide variety of fair trade, organic and non-GMO sweet treats. From chocolates to nut butter bombs, Alter Eco has your sweet tooth covered.
Project 7‘s products are fair-trade, low-carb, low sugar, plant-based, organic, and non-GMO. Their sweet treats and sugar-free gum live up to their “wildly impossible” super tasty claim. Plus, they support seven different non-profits focused on education, reforestation, clean water, anti-bullying, eradicating homelessness and malaria, and feeding the hungry.
Ever heard of edible up-cycling? Well, ReGrained is changing the industry by up-cycling the left over grains from beer brewing into delicious snacks that range from snack puffs to cereal bars.
