Why You Need A Travel Kit: Let’s Face It – It’s a Germy World

What started out as an idea to help keep Seat Sitter, Founder, Gina Hoensheid‘s family as free from germs as possible has evolved into something greater than her wildest dreams: a company helping many families across the world to keep themselves healthier and in less contact with germs on a daily basis. Gina Hoensheid came up with the idea of Seat Sitters, a healthy lifestyle and travel kit, long before Covid-19. Simply because as her growing family traveled, someone was always getting sick.

Now this entrepreneur says in the past year she has seen many “like” businesses come to the market. Hoensheid sees the market expanding because families want to stay safe but stands strongly in the belief of the quality and care of the product Seat Sitters has created.

The company’s stylish lifestyle and travel kits are lightweight and easy to carry and use no matter where individuals want to take them.

“At Seat Sitters we are proud to be an environmentally conscious green company and have gone to great lengths to create a reusable and recyclable products that reduces waste, states Hoensheid. “Our company is not just about us; we are about doing our part to make the planet cleaner and healthier for generations to come.” 

Hoensheid first launched Seat Sitters in 2018 as something you would take on an airplane.  Customers can use the travel kit on a bus, airplane, in a waiting room, spa or salon, restaurants, in a movie theatre, or on an Uber ride like a sanitation kit. Seat Sitters are designed to give the power back to the consumer to keep themselves and their space clean and healthy wherever they are going and that doesn’t always mean getting on an airplane as we once thought when we first developed the product. 

More recently Seat Sitters has introduced the Healthy Lifestyle Kit. The difference between these kits is the “Nut Free” sticker in the travel kit and the gloves in the lifestyle kit. Consumers can purchase the Healthy Travel Kit or Healthy Lifestyle Kit at Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Amazon, Brookstone and the Seat Sitters website at

Available in adult and kid editions, Seat Sitters are lightweight seat covers that protect against allergies, and germs. Each cover is made from eco-friendly, machine-washable fabric. The travel kit includes: 1 Seat Cover, 2 disposable tray table covers (with adhesive, to stay in place during flight), 2 Face Masks, 10 Pack Antibacterial Wipes, 1 0.5 fl oz Hand Sanitizer, 1 “No-Nut” Sticker. 

Not only does the company ensure a safe and healthy travel for customers, but the founder, Gina Hoensheid and the Seat Sitter Team, which is small and mighty, also gives back to multiple charities and her community. Some of the charities that the founder has contributed to include:  Miracle Flights, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, FARE, Granting Grace Foundation for Childhood Cancer, Girl Scouts, Make A Wish, The Pink Fund, and The Rainbow Connection.
