The holiday season is upon us and we’re challenging you to rethink the way you shop. Whether you’re rushing around buying last minute gifts, or buying things for yourself in preparation for 2019 (because #NewYearNewYou), we encourage you to start buying from companies that use business as a force for good. That’s right, we’re talking about certified B Corporations.
Not sure what a B Corporation is? No problem, this video will sum it up for you:
Why does DivaCup care about supporting B Corps? Because we’re one of them! In April of 2018, Diva International became a certified B Corporation. Supporting B Corporations is an idea we’re 100% on board for all day, every day. Certified B Corps set themselves apart through balancing purpose and profit.
Whether you’re shopping for your loved ones or looking for some new stuff to kick off 2019, why not broaden your shopping horizons? We’ve composed a list of 10 B Corporations that will enhance your shopping habits with a whole lot of goodness.
1. ME to WE
You can get jewelry, tote bags, stationary and even chocolate! But get this: ME to WE creates options for you to make a difference in the world with each product you buy from them. For example, purchasing one of their beaded bracelets could help a child from Kenya go to school for 1 year.
It’s no surprise that we’re all about reusable period products. Lunapads are the perfect period mate. They make all sorts of cloth pads and of course, comfortable period underwear.
3. Grosche International
Tea and coffee lover? Us too! On top of having great tea infusers and French presses, they have the Safe Water Project. For every product sold, Grosche guarantees over 50 days of safe drinking water for people in need.
We don’t know about you, but we love the idea of subscription boxes, especially those with a purpose. Causebox is the only B Corporation subscription box service with curated goods from companies that are socially and environmentally conscious–the gift that keeps on giving.
Bet you didn’t know Athleta was a B Corp. On top of making ethically sourced athletic wear, Athleta is empowering women through P.A.C.E. and fair trade.
Patagonia is known for their awesome outdoor wear and their Patagonia Action Works program that supports grassroots activists who are working to find solutions to the environmental crisis. Patagonia also has the Worn Wear program that encourages consumers to repair, share and recycle Patagonia products. Check it out.
NaturaBrasil beauty products speak for themselves. Ethically sourced, vegan, not tested on animals and celebrates Brazilian biodiversity- enough said!
8. Plaine Products
This beauty products company packages its hair and body products in aluminum bottles to cut down on plastic waste. Once your bottle is empty, they send you a refill so you can keep using the same bottle.
9. Good Cloth, LLC
Good Cloth makes shopping for sustainable clothes easy as can be. Their goal is to continue curating products from sustainable brands that they trust and believe in. They do this with budget in mind, so it’s ethical shopping made easy on the wallet.
10. Lucky Iron Fish
This fish is the real deal. Lucky Iron Fish is an iron fish that is used as a cooking tool to give you your daily dose of iron. For every fish that is sold, Lucky Iron Fish donates one to a family in need.
These are just a few of the B Corporations we’ve become totally in love with and we hope you do too. We’re proud to be standing alongside these wonderful companies that are making change in a big way. Guess what?
