While petroleum plastic contributes to climate change at every step of its lifecycle, Sway’s flexible packaging solution is made with process in mind. We work to undo the harms of plastic pollution everywhere, from the ocean to your backyard. Rather than seeing the ocean only as a site of degradation, we believe an answer to our biggest climate challenges — on land and at sea — has been underwater all along.
As one of our planet’s most vibrant ecosystems, seaweed forests provide vital services both above and underwater. Seaweed also grows up to 60 times faster than other land-based crops, and can sequester up to 20 times more carbon per acre than forests.
Regenerative seaweed farms can uplift coastal populations harmed by the climate crisis.
Sway partners with communities that have been severely affected by global overfishing and changing ecologies. Cultivating seaweed is inexpensive, requires no pesticides or fertilizers, and demands little equipment.
Plastics are manufactured in a rigid system that has been fine-tuned for efficiency. Rather than competing against this infrastructure, our material works within existing infrastructure. This helps integrate regenerative practices throughout scaled value chains.
Sway is developing home-compostable, guilt-free packaging solutions for large corporations and small businesses alike. We design with accessibility in mind, aiming to foster a more inclusive environmental movement.
