2020 has undoubtedly been a trying year for most of us. As we continue to face this global pandemic, it is equally important to stop and reflect on what this challenging time has taught us. One of these positive lessons includes a heightened awareness of how our lifestyle impacts our environment.

As the year comes to a close, more people are switching to b-corp brands for their shopping. What are B-corps? Why does it matter to gift B-corp products, and how is this going to change the way we live?

What are B-Corps?

These are certified businesses that rise to meet and address the growing consumerism issues and its repercussions on the environment. B-corps practice sustainability, public transparency, and legal accountability regarding their operations, balancing profit and purpose. They are game-changers in accelerating a shift in the global culture of how companies conduct their business to a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
