About Sun & Swell:
Sun & Swell has always been a company that stands for quality, organic, whole food that is free from heavy processing and harmful ingredients like preservatives, added sugars, and other chemical additives. Their journey started with a desire to make it easier for people to eat whole, real food- but it didn’t stop there. Sun & Swell has always wanted to be more than just a food company- they’ve wanted to stand for something. This led them to formalize their commitment to making the lives of their employees, community, and customers better by becoming a certified B-Corp and joining 1% for The Planet in 2017.
Over 75% of products Sun & Swell sells come in compostable packaging. Don’t have access to composting? No problem- they’ve got you covered! Sun & Swell offers a send-back program so that they can do the composting for you. Their eco-friendly shipping boxes use compostable tape, they offer carbon neutral shipping, and they avoid ink heavy printing and plastic inserts so that even their shipping boxes can be composted after use!
Sun & Swell knows that they’re just one small family company, and you are just one consumer, but we’ve got to start somewhere. Together we can do something much larger than ourselves.
