Sway and Reef Check Partner Up for Kelp Forests

Sway creates seaweed-based replacements for single-use plastic packaging

Reef Check is honored to be chosen as one of three key partners through 1% for the Planet Member Sway, who creates seaweed-based replacements for single-use plastic packaging. Sway balances market-driven solutions with environmental partnerships and echoes Reef Check’s approach to finding ecologically sound and economically sustainable solutions for our planet by sourcing from regenerative ocean farms (which promotes climate-resilient employment and expands the market for their main crop — seaweed) while improving conditions for marine life and mitigating the effects of climate change.

Of this partnership, Sway says, “There are two vital components of the seaweed revolution: creating demand for regeneratively farmed seaweed, which is the direct impact we hope to make, and the restoration of our vital seaweed ecosystems. While Sway pushes for market-driven solutions in our day-to-day work, it is of utmost importance to us that we also find direct opportunities to support kelp restoration, which is why we value Reef Check’s work in this capacity.” 

Thank you to the team at Sway and 1% for the Planet for partnering with Reef Check!
