We’re looking for the next breakthrough in healthy travel. So we partnered with EVENⓇ Hotels to find the next big wellness necessity with a brand new competition called Mission Wellness: Seeking the Next Healthy Travel Innovation. More than 100 businesses gave us their best pitch, and we’ve narrowed down the field to the final 12—which means it’s time for you to get a say! Check out Matchaful below (and take a look at the businesses it’s up against), and cast your vote by October 20.


Green tea energy on the go

The problem

If you’re a matcha lover, you know it’s not an “anytime, anyplace” kind of drink. The traditional ceremonial preparation requires several tools and steps, and the powder has to be handled carefully so it doesn’t get all over the place. Plus, not all cafes offer it, so unless you’re willing to use a less-potent prepackaged (and often sugar-heavy) version, you’re out of luck.

The solution

Say hello to organic, ceremonial-grade matcha packets you can pull out of your bag and use anywhere. Matchaful stick packs fit into your pocket and come ready to mix into any liquid, whether it’s your morning smoothie or a bottle of water at the airport. And there are no additives, sweeteners, or binding agents like maltodextrin or soluble corn fiber, just pure Japanese matcha.

The takeaway

Each packet gives you four to six hours of sustained energy and a boatload of powerful antioxidants—just what you need to keep you focused through long travel and work days.

Could this be the winner? Check out the competition and cast your vote here! (And do it fast—polls close October 20.)
