Stonyfield Organic is now a certified B Corporation!

Special thanks to Stonyfield Organics for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.


I'm so pleased to announce that Stonyfield Organic is now a certified B Corporation! 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. Simply put, B Corps are better companies for our environment, our communities, our world. 






As explained on BCorporation.net

"B Corps is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

B Corps are for-profit companies 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
."



The B Corp movement is one of the most important of our lifetime, built on the simple fact that business impacts and serves more than just shareholders—it has an equal responsibility to the community and to the planet.Rose Marcario, CEO of Patagonia


When I purchase a products from a B Corps, I know that my money is going to a company that makes good choices for my community and my world. These companies are the best in the business, and include Ben and Jerry's, Preserve (they make toothbrushes from recycled yogurt containers!), Pukka, Patagonia, Purely Elizabeth, King Arthur , Method, and Pete and Gerry’s.
