In 2017, one backpacking trip changed it all. Despite the postcard-worthy scenery, what stuck with Off The Path Provisions founder Melanie was the garbage bag of meal packaging they accumulated.
In addition, the camping meals were not nutritious and had little flavour diversity. With her background in sustainability and love for cooking, she knew this was a problem she could solve!
Today, Off The Path Provisions offers sustainable and healthy meals for people on the go - in nature, at work, or anywhere convenient food tends to be unhealthy, bland, and in single-use packaging, with a portion of profits funding outdoor education and sustainability programs for youth.
I love this shop! I am a repeat offender. Such an easy process to purchase items here. I love to use the “filter” button to narrow down what I need, whether it is a brand or an item under $20. I honestly think you could outfit yourself for a hike just thru this site- so cool! Quick shipping and my favorite part … I love getting my personalized note from GGG crew members. Such an awesome touch. Keep up the amazing job GGG!!🧡
Hands-, feet-, head-, whatever- down, simply the best. You just can't do much better than GGG. The positivity is welcomed and infectious. From the descriptions of the products, the interactions on emails, the little notes on the receipts, the fast service, the QUALITY of the products... I have only good vibes for these guys. And I must have about 5 of those teeny tiny toothbrushes :-D Cheers!!!
Garage Grown Gear is such a wonderful shop for any ultralight backpacking enthusiast looking to support small companies! Their staff are so friendly and helpful, they ship very quickly, and they always have awesome gear from awesome little companies. They also provide all kinds of helpful information and fun reading materials in their newsletters. I recommend this place to all of my friends and I recommend them to you as well!
