“You know, for us, it was never really an option to buy our kids products, like Capri Sun, that we felt were really loaded down with sugars and unnatural ingredients…”

Meet Amy & Tom Barnouw, the co-founders of Planet Fuel, an organic fruit juice company based in Fairfield, Connecticut. Tom and Amy are parents. Parents to three adorable little kids. They met out on the West Coast, are both lovers of nature and big supporters of environmental issues – she used to even work for environmental non-profits as a career before she became a mom. Planet Fuel, you could say, is their 4th baby, a company born out of the frustration of raising kids without enough readily available natural juice options in the marketplace.

Enjoy their story!

Planet Fuel is available in close to 70 stores throughout Connecticut and New Jersey, to purchase Planet Fuel for for more information, click here.
