When we set out to search and try zero-waste snacks we knew our prospects were slim. Packaging is a huge menace when it comes to the planet’s ecological health. Snacking guilt free without harming the earth is a bit of a task. It’s not always possible to rely on homemade snacks and fruits, so we have got a short and salty list of zero waste, on-the-go snacks for you.
