About Frontier Bites

Frontier Bites were created several years ago when my brother Nate and I challenged each other to a baking competition to see who could come up with the best alternative to the over-processed energy bars that we regularly ate.

The rules were simple: less than 10 ingredients; gluten, soy and dairy free; no refined sugars and only ingredients you can find in your pantry.

In the end (drum roll please…) it was Nate’s Almond Blueberry Lemon bites that won the day and for the next year, Nate and I continued to tweak his original recipe until we got it just right.  From there on the Bites were a constant companion in the office, on hikes and on fishing runs.

Nate and I were excited about what we’d created and the feedback we’d received was fantastic, so in 2011 we decided to lay the groundwork to turn this dream into a business.

But that’s when our journey took a turn.  On August 15 that year, I was woken up by a call ultimately telling me that Nate had passed away in a river rafting accident.

In that moment my world was shaken – having lost my best friend and business partner in an instant.  It was a moment in life that causes you to question everything and re-evaluate your purpose and mission in light of the fragility of life.

At the time I had still kept my day-job as a civil engineer to help fund our new startup, but almost as soon as the accident happened, I knew that my mission in life was about to change – I decided to quit my job and finish what Nate and I had started and build an innovative healthy snack brand dedicated to life, good food and adventure.

From humble beginnings and a dream between two brothers, I am excited to be sharing our dream with you.  Nate and I wanted to create a better, more convenient snack that would fuel adventures big and small.  So whether you’re carpooling kids around town, burning the midnight oil at the office or climbing a mountain, Frontier Bites will be the fuel to help you get there.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Seed Eyewear – Bamboo Sunglasses that Help Preserve the Forests



Seed Eyewear - Bamboo Sunglasses that Help Preserve the Forests

Currently gathering funds through a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo, Seed Eyewear is on a mission to make sustainable and elegant bamboo sunglasses with a cause - with every pair of sunglasses purchased, you donate to plant 5 new trees.


The sunglasses offered in Seed Eyewear's first production run offer a unique take on some classic frame designs, with the main twist being that all the frames are made with 100% bamboo (making them lightweight and sturdy) and stained to either black or dark brown. They include spring hinges and double polarized Revo lenses.

The company is raising the funds to fund the first production run as well as hopefully plant 100s of trees in the process. It plans to partner up with multiple tree planting organizations, mainly focusing on helping communities in troubled areas that rely on their forests.

“We've worked with over a 100 fashion and style bloggers, artists and makers, to help us select the models and color combinations for our first Seed Eyewear collection. In the end we launched the campaign with 3 different frame designs, each in 2 different colors. “–Neza Bizjak

Seed Eyewear says they already have all the parts suppliers lined up and are ready to move as soon as the crowdfunding campaign closes – which is August 20th – to quickly send out the pre-ordered pairs of sunglasses to all the IndieGogo supporters

“We’ve made an effort to ensure all the parts are ready to go before we launch the campaign, the supply chain, the logistics and the partnerships with the tree planting organizations. The plan is to start with 2-3 organizations – we are currently working with ones focused on Haiti, Ethiopia and Madagascar – and expand from there to cover a more diverse set of locations.”–Tilen Krivec



During the campaign, you are able to pre-order from the initial Seed Eyewear collection at significantly lower prices and can choose from 6 different designs and color combinations.
