I have always admired B-Corps. What are B-Corps? "These companies meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems". Together, they lead a growing worldwide movement to use business as a "force for good". There are 2,180 B-Corps and the most famous one is TOMS Shoes that donates a pair of shoes everytime a purchase is made. Now, TOMS has gone "Beyond One for One". I also admire Green Businesses and GBN: Green Businesses Networking. I am inspired by SEA: Social Enterprise Alliance - members form an "active community that is at the forefront of the social enterprise movement. From enterprising non-profits and mission-driven for-profits, to supporters, consultants, academics and others, SEA’s membership is as diverse as the movement itself. What unites SEA members is a vision of social enterprise to address basic needs and create opportunity for all through effective, efficient and sustainable solutions".
My idea is to connect these three amazing organizations together and multiple the good that they do. If you are a B-Corp or want to be part of LOHAS: Lifestyle of Health And Sustainability, join the group. Align your actions with your values and be the change you want to see in the world.
