About this project

Literally anywhere.... such freedom!
Get your FINAL DAY SPECIAL today!! Less than 48 hours left to grab the best discount available anywhere. Two (2) GreenTravelers for only $70! Or one of two Bundle Packages! See below for details.
We created the GreenTraveler to offer a solution to people who leave the house and want a convenient, travel-friendly way to take food on-the-go without messes like these:
How often do you wish you had your favorite food with you to avoid going hungry or spending money on over-priced restaurant food?
While trying to use other portable containers, we were tired of leaks, spills, having only one compartment leaving our food soggy, inconvenient shapes and sizes that don't fit in a bag, and throwing away disposable to-go containers that didn't work very well anyway.
Thinking back, you may have memories of battling some problems that standard food containers pose...
With GreenTraveler everywhere as your primary container you may be amazed how many uses it has - keep liquids in, keep rain and water out, store food and beverages, use for first aid or baby supplies, or for any items you need protected.
For us at GreenTraveler, the world's most convenient, waste-free, portable container is a cylinder with carabiner loops and 6 compartments that won't leak, spill or break. It was modeled from a water bottle, which we carry everywhere to avoid disposable plastic bottles... the same problem.
For this size and shape plastic is still the best material. But don't be afraid of it. We made sure it has no BPA or phthalates so it won't leach chemicals in your food, even in a microwave. Chances are you are already eating out of plastic with food you buy at the grocery store or your containers at home. The plastic used in the Original GreenTraveler is approved by the food safety foundations for food around the world.
To see these features in motion, see our rendered animation in this short video:
Do you leave your house sometimes? Do you eat? Do you want to save money? Then this is for you. It is not only for adventure travel or active lifestyles, although adventurers will love it. It is for the commuter who goes to a job all day. The student who goes to school. Hobbyist photographers or fishermen. The GreenTraveler is for people who leave the house and want good food wherever they are.
The world has taken notice.....
How does it work?
The Original GreenTraveler may feel like a puzzle the first time, but once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder why it didn't exist before.
The Original GreenTraveler replaces many items you may use every day.
Until Nov 22nd, the Original GreenTraveler is being sold on a Kickstarter discount from retail price to reward those early adopters that support us in making this project a reality! See the rewards available to the right.
We are thinking that if you love the GreenTraveler, you will also love some of our rewards ...

We couldn't have done this without our awesome media firms helping us get the word out!
We have a consultant living next to the manufacturing facility who is nearly like a partner, conducting continuous 3rd party quality control. But what if your GT breaks or you don't like it?
Manufacturer's defects are covered for a month. Just send picture or video of the defect to us and we will get a replacement part sent to you.
GreenTraveler covers its products under normal use for life. We want you to enjoy our products your whole life and never see them in a landfill. We also offer a recycling program to provide a replacement part with free shipping if you ship the broken part to us (or send a photo of it in the proper recycle bin). See our website for warranty details.
We hope you'll enjoying using your new adventure toy. Take it everywhere and see how useful it can be.
Connect with us on social media and stay tuned as we have new innovations coming to you!
We have planned for a couple years in the future with logistics, partnerships, financial proformas, and designs of new products we will launch. All we need is the successful launch of this first product with initial funding for injection molding and we can give you much more convenience while traveling.
Then and Now
This project just kept calling us to be born! This is our first Kickstarter, but not our first business. As serial entrepreneurs with finance experience, we put all our intelligence, time, and money starting in November 2015 to make it a reality with full force.
Risks and challenges
Coming from investment banking and business development backgrounds we know what makes a business successful and what makes them fail. We are aware of the growth stages and are planning for them to eventually grow to become a mature, multinational enterprise.
Our product has shown proof of functionality and a need in the market place, even to some that weren't already aware of their need.
We have pre-planned everything we can think of with redundancy, including: legal advice, product labels, boxes, secondary assembly logistics, customs brokers, and fulfillment centers. We do not expect any hiccups, but the first hurdle will be manufacturing high-quality products to perform as designed. We are happy with the prototypes the manufacturer made so we expect the die creation to go smoothly as well.
Chinese New Year may set back our timeline a couple months if we don't get the quality we want before then.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

To view and add-on your insulated carrying bag increase you pledge $23 and leave a comment at the bottom of the announcement post here:
To view and add-on End Caps to allow just liquid-tight reliability for just the center body of the GreenTraveler, add $8 to your pledge and leave a comment at the bottom of the announcement post here:
We will also send a survey at the end of the campaign to allow you to confirm or change your order.
Hope to make it as simple as possible.
The Original GreenTraveler design by itself is not insulated as that adds significant cost, bulk, and weight to the product. In the question above is an option to add-on an insulated carrying sleeve. If you really want to keep food hot or cold for a couple hours longer, we now offer that.
We have three prototypes of the latest design that have been tested extensively by 5 different people in various situations with no leaking problems and we have had over ten prototypes made before we came to the current design which passes our tests. We will test the saleable protect extensively using 3rd party testing centers early next year, if all goes well with our campaign.
We endeavor to ship direct from our manufacturer and would love to make it happen before Christmas as a stretch goal, but no promises. We must be sure to have a high quality product before shipping. All our shipping is international.
The glass transition temperature (softening temperature of ABS is approximately 105 °C (221 °F). Which means that it can (theoretically) withstand boiling water. We have put hot soups and tea in it many times with no problems. It is microwave safe but it cannot be used for cooking.
Yes. We sell all our parts individually.

Every buyer will be able to choose a color. Currently we have 8 colors to choose from but we think that is too many, so please vote on your top three (3) and we will try hard to satisfy everyone.

We have a very close relationship with our manufacturer in China. We tried very hard to find a manufacturer in the US, where the majority of our customers are, but they either (a) couldn't handle our size and volume, or outsourced to China anyway. So we found an on-the-ground quality control consultant we trust who has a close, long-time relationship with the injection molding manufacturer.
