the origin of trayGUARD

The idea of a disposable protective cover for an airline, bus and train tray table first came to co-founder Jason Drebitko while on a business trip to Los Angeles. Traveling frequently for business and pleasure, and reading about the challenges of staying healthy when traveling, an idea was born. With a wife who is also a physician and a germophobe, and two children, he and his family found themselves always trying to stay healthy and be preventative where possible. Although often working with a laptop on the airplane, he always hesitated to use the tray table as it was inevitably sticky and soiled with the last passenger’s food and who knows what else. It was then that he wished he had an antimicrobial cover that could slip over the tray and be disposed of when leaving the airplane. In developing the product, co-founders Jason Drebitko and Alexys Wilbur learned that not all antimicrobial fabrics are created equal. Extensive research led to sourcing the ideal fabric- a non-woven material made from recycled plastic bottles, which uses a patented copper and ion technology to actively kill a number of potentially harmful microbes including the bacteria commonly found on surfaces in shared public spaces.
