Many of us take some time on Earth Day to consider how we're impacting the planet. Have you ever given it much thought?
You probably know that buying organic may help support healthy soil, and you probably know about GMOs. But there's another way to be conscientious about your environmental impact that often gets less press.
B Corportations have been around for years now, but did you know what that means? In order for them to get certified, they need to, among other things, prove their commitment to environmental values.
B Corporations actually go beyond just environmental impact; to become B Corp certified, companies must undergo "a rigorous assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment." Megafood, HerbPharm, Brew Dr. Kombucha, and New Chapter are just a few of the companies we carry who have been B Corp certified! You can find more companies, or see whether your favorites have been certified, on the Certified B Corporation Directory, and look for their logo on the products you buy.
This earth day, consider going an extra step in the way you shop and supporting companies who are looking out for the planet we all call home.
