Single-use plastic waste is no stranger to the vast ocean that makes up the majority of our planet. Unfortunately, the oceans are fed nearly thirteen million tonnes of plastic pollution every single year, affecting not only the health of our environment but the marine life beneath our sightline. This leaves many to turn a blind eye to the significant impact even a single piece of litter could have on our planet.
At SnacTripster, we believe that the planet is something to be cared for and appreciated, not something thoughtlessly taken for granted. Our mission is not only to reduce the overall use of single-use plastic, but to take the initiative to clean up some of the damage that’s already been done.

Our small (but mighty) team of seven set out to meet at New Smyrna Beach where we spent the day reducing plastic waste, and ridding the beach of other harmful scraps of plastic pollution. We believe that initiatives such as this will help our local beaches, and continue to spread awareness about the dangers that single-use plastic poses on our environment.

At SnacTripster, we aim to discover new ways to reduce plastic waste. For this reason, we provide both a durable and reusable food travel container that aims to eliminate the single-use plastic waste that other food travel products typically create. Single-use plastic wrappers, bags, and other food seals are produced at a rapid rate, and typically end up either in landfills or in the ocean. At SnacTripster, we build airtight containers to last a lifetime. We strive to make food travel fun, accessible, and eco-friendly. Travel with kids has never been so easy and nutritious. All you have to do is pack a snack and go.
