Sway’s design uses seaweed-derived material that is bio-based and designed to be carbon-negative, meaning it removes carbon from the environment when it’s made rather than adding to it.
As more local governments pass measures banning those flimsy polypropylene bags, the need for a single-use solution is clear. After all, unplanned shopping trips do happen. But continuing to buy more and more “reusable” bags isn’t sustainable either.
Plastic bags can harm our oceans—so why not look to the oceans for a solution? Sway uses a bio-based, carbon-negative seaweed-derived material to make bags that look like plastic, but are way more eco-friendly.
There was a time when you didn’t think twice about the materials used to wrap your products or food. Now, one can safely hope, everyone knows plastic is a problem. Whether that leads to wiser, long-term behavior is a design challenge.
