In 2010, Sarah Kauss started S’well with an audacious goal — to rid the world of single-use plastic bottles.
At a time when sustainable products weren’t stylish and stylish products weren’t sustainable, she created the world’s first reusable hydration accessory. A beautiful form that fused function with fashion to make doing the right thing a crave-worthy experience.
It started with our iconic 500-mL bottle. A triple-insulated trophy of industrial design that keeps cold cold for 36 hours and hot hot for 18. We then expanded beyond bottles and hydration into food, barware and accessories, in different colors, prints, patterns and textures. All created to give you more ways to use less. All designed to keep the things you love hotter or colder for longer.
Every day we’re inspired to bring style, innovation and joy to sustainable living. That means doing good, being good, to ourselves and the planet through the power of design and ingenuity. It also means we strive to positively transform the world, not only through our products, but through consistent action and giving back when we can.
With the world’s resources and our own personal reserves being spent, we believe that something as simple as buying a beautiful reusable bottle or bowl can make a difference. Every S’well purchased counts towards displacing millions of plastic bottles and also helps us pledge millions of dollars to organizations that help communities around the world.
At S’well, we hope to be a spark for change — the inspiration to live a little more sustainably in an unsustainable world.
