Back to the roots:
Getting as closer to nature and as ethical as possible they are committed to always choose organic, plant-based, and no added sugars, or no preservatives and flavors.
75% of their product's packaging are 100% compostable. They are slowly transitioning all their products to compostable packaging. However, in the meantime rest of the products are in Recycle #2 packing that is widely acceptable plastic for recycling.
Thier shipping boxes use compostable tape, offering carbon neutral shipping, and they avoid ink heavy printing and plastic inserts so that even their shipping boxes can be composted after use!
Sourcing the ingredients closer to their home from US farm in California is their first priority. If not California then a farm somewhere else in the US. When an ingredient isn't produced in the United States (like certain superfoods), they carefully choose importers that support ethical farming practices as well as their values and our mission.
They joined 1% for the Planet in 2018 as a way to formalize thier commitment to giving back to the planet and the community. As a member of 1% for the Planet, they commit to donating 1% of their revenue to environmental non-profits addressing two areas they are deeply passionate about:

Sun & Swell Foods Commitment:
Their goal is to ultimately transition all of the products over to compostable packaging. They packaged more of their product line in compostable packaging than any other food brand in the nation. In 2019, they were recognized for leadership by the food industry with a major industry award.
