Our Journey to B Corp - Part 4

A blog series. Read parts one, two and three.

What’s next

Over the next several months, you’ll be seeing more about our B Corp journey. We’ll also be implementing more surveys of suppliers, customers and employees.

You might have noticed something was afoot when we started hinting at our sustainability goals and employee-focused changes. Now that we’ve made the announcement that we’re working towards B Corp certification, we’ll share even more of what we’re working on. Some examples include adopting a responsible sourcing policy, investing in sustainable products and green initiatives for the home/in-office work environment.

Part of our B Corp journey will involve more transparency in several aspects of our business, particularly our charitable giving and goals around sustainability. We’ll be sharing more initiatives in the coming weeks, but here is a sneak peek at two really exciting announcements:

  • 1% of all online sales will be donated to charitable causes starting in Q3 of 2022
  • Sustainable alternative products will be added to the REVLAR product line by 2030

Stay tuned for more information about these goals and others!

Putting it out there

We plan to submit for B Corp certification within the next 6-9 months. That’s kind of a scary thing to put out into the world. There is some hesitancy to admit to a big goal in such a public way. What if it doesn’t happen? But, as Bruce mentioned, we’re learning the lesson of vulnerability.

We’re striving to be successful in this endeavor, and regardless of the outcome, the positive changes we’re making to our company are long-term. These efforts are making us a better company, and we’re committed to that work.
