3. Stock Up On Snacks Before You Go – Dawn Brighid

Having fun snacks in the car is part of the complete road trip experience. If you are driving or flying to visit family and friends for the holidays, it’s best not to rely on the gas station or the airport for healthy and sustainable options. Plan to stop by a co-op, health food store or your favorite grocery store before you head out. You can always check Eat Well Guide to find a store near you! Fruit, hummus, popcorn, or fair trade chocolate are all much healthier, sustainable choices than that.50¢ hot dog that’s been sitting for days (weeks?) at the rest stop gas station.

7. Shop Sustainably On the Road and When You Get to Your Home-Away-From-Home – Dawn Brighid

If you are spontaneous and up for an adventure, or didn’t plan your road trip snacks in advance, find some along the way! Type in your starting and ending zip codes to find sustainable options along your route with our Eat Well Everywhere travel tool! Time your pit stop to hit a delicious sustainable restaurant half way to Grandma’s or find a store to pick up some organic milk (or a hostess gift) once you get to town.
