We know, we say it a lot. But what does it really mean, and why do we wear this status with so much pride?
Every certified B Corp uses its profits and growth to propel positive change and impact for their employees, communities and the environment. That’s the bottom line.
Here’s a few of the key reasons why we love being a B Corp:
B Corp is aligned with our founding purpose
To do good in the world, to encourage sustainability, to reuse and recycle, and to support people and communities.
Every aspect of what we were founded on is mirrored in the pillars of any B Corp company. So now we have the official stamp, it’s a great feeling to know we’re continuing to grow in a positive direction while remaining true to our initial purpose.
Being the change we want to see
It’s important to us that we’re transparent. We’re not just all talk or here to greenwash. Every day we take action to recycle and rehome used books and media, saving them from waste. Our B Corp status helps us to proudly and openly discuss the steps we take to become a better business while giving you the confidence that we mean it.
Sharing a space with other great brands
Not only do we love being a B Corp, but we also love learning all about our fellow brands too. Sharing a space with those who share our values keeps us focused, inspired, and constantly learning new things. From Happiful to KeepCup, B Corp is a great place to be and we love being part of this community, all working towards creating a more positive future. It’s all about those #littlewins.
Building our community of like-minded readers
It’s true, we love to shout about being a B Corp. Can you blame us? What’s more, we’re so grateful that our customers, followers, and our people are engaged in the discussion too. We love to hear about how you feel good shopping with us, and maybe even trading with us over at Ziffit. Every book bought or sold to be reused is a little win for us, you, and the planet. We’re so happy to hear from you; whether you’re dropping us a DM, tagging us in posts on Instagram, or writing an email, keep sharing the B Corp love and telling us what you think!
For us, B Corp isn’t just a badge, a label, or a fancy status. It’s a recognition and representation of the core of who we’ve always been, what we always do, and where we’re continuing to go.
