If you have seen me in the snack section at the co-op lately, then you know that I am seriously struggling with the packaging of snack foods. Specifically the packaging of the good all natural snacks that my family and I love to eat, things like organic pretzels and potato chips.
See, I'm looking for a good company who can do more: I'm looking for a compostable bag around my potato chips.
Sunchips made a biodegradable bag for their product a few years ago, but it was apparently too noisy for their customers. They seriously ditched the bag and went back to the old packaging because of how noisy it was... but it seems that they have been working really hard trying to come up with an alternative to the rigid jet engine sounding bag.
What I'm looking for one of the more environmentally friendly companies that make snacks to step up to the plate and prove themselves to me - prove that you are THAT worth it for me to buy your products.
I've been poking around for weeks now and I finally came across something that I can work with: Boulder Canyon chips. Check them out - they totally have an option for buying their product in compostable packaging! I immediately put in my request to our grocery manager to bring in this option at our store (actually, it was more like begging than requesting). If this product interests you, consider putting in a request at the store(s) that you shop at. More interest in the product because of it's packaging can only encourage more packaging of it's kind. Imagine how cool it wold be if most of the snacks that we bought were in compostable or biodegradable packaging...
Do you know of any other companies/products that have compostable or biodegradable snack packages?? If so, please share!
