Happy International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month from Trash Panda! We believe the best way to support women-owned brands is to buy women-owned brands, so we’ve created a list of some of our favorite products who have female founders. Not only do these businesses have amazing back stories, but they also prioritize real, clean ingredients. We know how important supporting brands like these are, as Trash Panda is also female-founded by our General Manager, Julia.
Celebrate Women’s History Month with us by giving these products a try - not just in March but all year round! You can also share the love by sending this list to a friend, or following these brands on social media.
To make the celebration even more exciting, we’ll be partnering with B.T.R. NATION for a giveaway! Details will be posted on our Instagram, so stay tuned for that. Read about their amazing mission and why we love them below.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip B.T.R Bar
We’re so lucky to be able to partner with one of our favorite brands. Founder Ashley Nickelsen is an ingredient-buff who wants to raise awareness around reading food labels (can you see why we love her?) B.T.R. NATION creates protein bars with a purpose - bars that aren’t loaded with sugar, chemical additives, or ingredients you can’t pronounce. Additionally, B.T.R. NATION works with and empowers other female-owned businesses. It doesn’t get much better than that. The giveaway will go live this Women’s History Month so check on Instagram for details. Buy the bars on their website or on Amazon.
Siete Grain-Free Taco Shells
Siete Foods are no stranger to Trash Panda approved lists. The Mexican-American brand makes grain-free products with whole ingredients that are truly delicious. Founder Veronica Garza was diagnosed with multiple debilitating autoimmune conditions as a teenager, motivating her to create food that heals, rather than harms. Take a look at these taco shells or cashew queso in the app! Browse all their products on their website or on Amazon.
You Again Mint Chocolate Baking Mix
You Again offers unique superfood baking mixes that will leave you feeling recharged and healthy. This mint chocolate mix may be used for brownies or cookies and includes ingredients like protein-packed spirulina and mushroom adaptogen corycep known to provide energy! You Again Founder Priya believes that wellness shouldn’t be restrictive - find their mixes on their website or on Amazon.
Jeni's Honey Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
Jeni’s ice cream redefines what it means for a dessert to be high-quality. With no use of synthetic flavorings, dyes, stabilizers, or emulsifiers, founder Jeni Bauer has changed the game. This honey vanilla bean ice cream is made with Fair Trade vanilla beans and organic honey, and if that doesn’t sell you, we don’t know what will. Find this flavor on on Jeni’s website.
Lil Bucks Original Paleo Cereal
Lil Bucks Sprouted Buckwheat Crunch is for those of us who enjoy a crunch - but don’t want all the added sugars or grains normally found in granola. Lil Bucks may be enjoyed on smoothies, toasts, pancakes, and more. This female-founded, unique brand is sure to be your next obsession. Owner Emily had sprouted buckwheat instead of sugary granola in Australia, and knew she needed to bring this superfood to the U.S.. Learn more on their website and shop Lil Bucks on Amazon.
NuttZo Chilled Almond, Maple + Matcha Bar
It’s no secret we love NuttZo products. While originally known for its blend of 7 nuts and seeds butter, founder Danielle LiVolsi has grown NuttZo to include nutritionally dense products like this Chilled Bold Bitez bar; their products are a perfect way to increase your plant-based protein intake.
Daily Crunch Cacao + Sea Salt Sprouted Almonds
Lastly, we’re featuring Daily Crunch. This unique almond snack is light, flavorful, and packed with protein. A perfect on the go snack, or a charcuterie board game changer. These Cacao + Sea Salt sprouted almonds will keep you energized and have you craving more! Founders Diane and Laurel sprout and dehydrate almonds (as opposed to roasting them) for added health benefits and a crunchier taste. Game changer. Shop Daily Crunch on their website or find them on Amazon.
Happy Women’s History month, everybody! We hope this list is a valuable resource and inspires you to give some new products a try. For more product details and our giveaway with B.T.R. NATION, head on over to our Instagram. See you next Trash Panda Tuesday!
