It’s B Corp Month!
If you don’t know what a B Corp is, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s the lowdown:
B(enefit) Corporations (now you know what the B stands for) are a group of companies of all sizes and revenue models, recognised for their best-in class environmental, social and working practices.
Basically….. B Corp is the gold standard certification for companies that put the planet and its inhabitants before profits. The B Corp certification looks at the entirety of a business's operations. Covering five key areas: Workers, Community, Governance, Environment, and Customers.
We became B Corp Certified as soon as it was readily available for us back in 2020. But that’s enough about us. This month we’re shining a spotlight on a few of our favourite B Corps…
Let's dive right in…
TeaPigs: Teapigs was the first-ever tea company awarded the Plastic-Free Trustmark from our friends, A Plastic Planet - which puts them high up on our list! Read more about their sustainability credentials here, and treat yourself to some tea with our 20% off B Corp code, BCORP.
ToastAle: We’ve always been a huge fan of everything that Toast Ale does for the planet, making their beers from surplus bread that otherwise would’ve gone to waste.
Pala Eyewear: Your go-to for sustainable eyewear, they use plant-based bio-acetate for all of their frames. More than this, they deliver lasting change, empowerment, and opportunity through funding eyecare projects across Africa.
Leo’s Box: Leo’s Box is a curated edit of sustainable skincare and home products from British brands such as REN, Homethings, and Upcircle. Members have access to a number of products that are handpicked by Leo’s Box at up to 70% off RRP. Non-members can buy the same products at RRP.
