Sustainability Never Tasted So Good!
BAR-U-EAT launches their new handmade organic granola bars sealed in plant-based compostable packaging to combat waste from the snack industry.
When Co-Founders Sam Nelson and Jason Friday set out to bring their organic snacks to market, they realised that there was a common theme among all snack bars — waste. Most bars that you purchase come in plastic or metalized wrappers that aren't recyclable. That means every time you unwrap your snack and toss the wrapper, that packaging sticks around landfills for many years to come.
With the snack bar industry being a 20.15 billion dollar industry and growing in the U.S. alone, that means there's a whole lot of waste coming from your favorite snack's wrappers. That's where BAR-U-EAT's plant-based packaging comes in.
The individual wrappers are made from virgin paper and wood cellulose from sustainably managed forests as well as a bioplastic made from sugarcane. The bites packaging are made with the same wood cellulose with the addition of a bioplastic partially made from corn.
You can rest assured that when you send BAR-U-EAT's packaging off to compost, they'll be returning to the environment to contribute to a healthier planet.
The bars themselves contain consciously sourced, simple organic ingredients free of any preservatives to give your body the fuel it needs as nature intended. They contain healthy fats and carbs with no more sugar than an apple, making these the perfect energy boosting snack to continue your day whether you're having a long day at work or are out conquering great outdoors.
The date, oats, nuts, and seeds bar has a texture that is a cross between soft egg-based bars and crunchy nut bars, giving you a snack that's not too soft and not too crunchy. When you bite into every bar, you'll get initial warm sweetness from the medjool dates followed by a slight crunch from the oats, nuts, and seeds and a tiny bit of salt on the finish.
They currently come in four flavors — Original, Coffee Pecan, Oatmeal Raisin, and Peanuts N' Cherries and are offered in both bar and bite form.
The bars in all flavors can be purchased individually for $2.49 or $28.95 in their 12 pack. The bites can be had for $7.95 each.
