What is a "sustainable snack," anyway? To us, a sustainable snack has packaging that doesn't have to go to the landfill, is mindful of every step of the creation process, has healthier ingredients, and usually gives back to worthy organizations, too. It's care for people and the planet, all wrapped up in a tidy little package. As you're shopping, keep a lookout for labels and certifications like organic, fair trade, and Certified B Corp to be sure they're on the right path. 

Does that seem like a lot of research for a grab-and-go-snack? Don't worry, we've got you covered with our picks that are so delicious, they'll be in your regular snack rotation. We've spent countless hours doing research, decoding certifications, checking rankings, and testing them out ourselves –– all so you don't have to!
