SW’s Mission is sustainability, and one critical aspect of sustainability is managing our natural resources. SW targeted packaging as an avenue for improvement to be more sustainable, this included everything from the packaging materials to the inks used in the printing. We did this by taking steps to verify that our materials come from certified sources who take forest stewardship seriously.
