How to ‘B’ a Better Consumer with B Corps

Stonyfield is now a certified B Corp!

This post has been created in partnership with Stonyfield. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting B Corp brands that are better for us and our planet! 

Looking to support better, more socially-conscious brands and feel good about it in the process? Of course you are. It’s 2017 and our voice as consumers MATTERS. The products that we buy tell a story about who we are and what’s important to us. Every time we swipe (insert?) our credit cards we are sharing with the world what we think is important: Organic, Grass-Fed, Fair-Trade, Local, whatever the phrase may be, with each purchase we can make an impact on our future.

With all of the many certifications and labels we see today, it can be hard to keep up with what’s what. One of the most interesting certifications I have heard of lately is called “B Corp” – the funny thing is, a lot of the brands you probably already use are certified B Corps: Method, Ben & Jerry’s, Cabot Cheese, and now Stonyfield Yogurt!

So What Exactly is a B Corp?

According to Stonyfield’s Website, “Certified B Corporations® are leaders of the global movement of People Using Business as a Force for Good. Certified B Corporations® meet the highest standards of verified overall social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.”

More or less, companies that are Certified B Corps actually care about the impact that they have on, well, everyone: from the people who make their products to those of us who consume them. These companies desire to “do no harm, and benefit all.”

Sounds pretty good, right? If I can help contribute to that movement all by choosing delicious, grass-fed yogurt, then sign me up!

Which brands are Certified B Corporations?

Stonyfield is a newly certified B Corp which means your daily yogurt + fruit + granola = being the change. Other popular B Corp brands include: Method, King Arthur Flour, Purely Elizabeth Granola, Pete and Gerry’s Eggs, Preserve, and Pukka Tea.
