I created this post in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are always my own.
A big high five to Stonyfield Organic for becoming a certified B Corporation! What’s B Corp? Basically a B Corporation is a for-profit company that is certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,600 Certified B Corps from 42 countries and over 120 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business. B Corps are better companies – better for workers, better for communities and better for the environment.
I am happy to support B Corps because I know that my money is going to a good product, supported by a good company, that makes good choices. Some other B Corps include Preserve, Pukka, Purely Elizabeth, King Arthur , Method, and Pete and Gerry’s. Preserve makes toothbrushes out of recycled yogurt containers. Pretty awesome right? Most of us probably recognize Method and use their soap and cleaning products.
I encourage you to do some research and see the good that companies can do.
Crowdsourcing: Did you know what a B Corporation was before you read this post? Happy Monday everyone!
