Peace Love & Oats, Chilled Creamy Oats
"Retro owl packaging targets women who remember mornings of sweet oatmeal as a kid, while showing our snack to be a wise, healthy choice as an adult. Each of the packages features a different owl and boldly displays the flavor with a subtle oat texture. Can you dig it? Then dig in!"

Go, Feed Your Ethos
"Go began with one insight: all the gear in the world is worthless if you don’t have the energy to use it. That’s why Patagonia brings their knowledge of technical performance to the world of performance nutrition. Modular point-of-sale displays are made of cardboard recycled from Patagonia’ warehouse and echo the mountains of the parent brand’s mountain range logo. An efficient alternative to sugar-soaked energy bars currently on the market, Rute gives you the energy you need, only without the sugar crash. Reflective inside coating is repurposed as an emergency survival mirror. Effervescent hydration tablets enliven you with a natural burst of energy inducing electrolytes an caffeine when added to your 32 oz. reusable water bottle. The container is made from recycled Patagonia jackets and easily clips on to your carabiner. Nomad is loose granola is packaged in single serving shots and packaging can be composted after use, or used as kindle for a camp fire.
