Since 2018 founders Jake and Amee embarked on a mission to craft the world first reusable bottle made from plant-based materials, while on their journey including social projects, economic justice, and ecological materials every step of the way. After 2 years of intense research Queen Margaret University graduate Jake and Edinburgh College graduate Amee managed to create the world’s first reusable bottle made from plant-based materials using naturally grown wheat straw. Creating their company S’wheat, they managed to craft the world’s most sustainable bottle. Designed in Scotland inspired by the diverse Scottish mountain ranges, mist-filled lochs, and ancient forests.
S’wheat is not only made from plant-based materials but also gives back to the environment, every S’wheat product sold takes the equivalent of 20 lbs of plastic out of the ocean, that’s 360 single-use plastic bottles worth, for every sale. However, founders Jake and Amee wanted to do more for the environment and make a real measurable difference that you can be proud of. That is why every sale also plants a tree, however the fascinating part is that you can track the growth of your tree in real-time and see where in the world it has been planted, this is available to anyone who purchases a S’wheat product.
S’wheat is committed to making a genuine contribution to the planet. They are setting an example for the reusable product industry. Each product they create is ethically produced, made from sustainably sourced materials, carbon neutral, and gives back to the planet. S’wheat gives their full attention to making the planet a cleaner and better place. S’wheat also donates a % of its profits to help protect wildlife and sea life all around the world. S’wheat aims to disrupt the single-use product industry by showing a cleaner and safer alternative to traditional means.
On their 2-year journey S’wheat has picked up a number of awards including awards from: Scottish Edge, Santander, Princes Trust, The Hunter Foundation, Natwest and more. Being recognised for their efforts was a humbling and driving factor to work even harder to make the world a cleaner place.
S’wheat’s inspiring friendship and close collaboration with nature has been ongoing for over 2 years. The brand’s practical, durable, eco-insulated and charming products have earned them a following that is both humbling and motivating. Research shows that S’wheat is doing something right too.

It confirms the values of what S’wheat is doing, and why the brand strives to create products that become long time favourites. Developing durable, practical, and most importantly sustainable products has been a true privilege for the brand and S’wheat is looking forward to growing with its strong community.
