B the Change: Our 2015 Benefit Report

As a certified Benefit Corporation, we release an annual report every March that communicates our successes (and where we have room for improvement!) to the community at large. Please feel free to leave any questions or suggestions you have in the comments of this post — we’d love to hear from you!

What’s a certified B Corp?

B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. It’s a certification that looks at an entire business — not just individual products. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Why is GladRags a B Corp?

We choose to be a certified B Corp because it holds us accountable for our actions, and encourages us to confront every opportunity with the questions: does this reflect our values? How does this serve people and planet? You can read more about why being a B Corp matters to us here.
