With one week left of 2016, it seems that everyone around us is reflecting on the past year. S’well HQ is abuzz with pre-New Year partying, and nearly every member of Team S’well has been overheard recounting their favorite memories from the past 365 days. Between new collections, artist collaborations, charity partnerships and industry recognitions, we have a lot to celebrate. We’ve seen so much change, growth, and success this year, and it’s only fitting to look back on all of the wins as we set our sights on next year’s goals.
