Seattle Chocolate receives Environmental Excellence Award

CEO and creator of Seattle Chocolate, Jean Thompson, is the winner of the Port of Seattle 2020 Environmental Excellence Award for reducing shipment supply waste by 80 percent with reusable boxes, donating over 54,000 fresh food servings to local food banks and using compostable film wraps for over 7.2 million chocolates.

“Seemingly small things like compostable or recyclable wrappers are surprisingly difficult to source and execute, but are worth it to reduce our operation’s impact on the planet and give consumers environmentally friendly options as they’re shopping for chocolate.”

- Jean Thompson, CEO
