Earth-Friendly Products and Services from 1% for the Planet B Corps
This Earth Month and always, let’s remember to consider the environmental impact of everything we purchase and do. When you support a Certified B Corporation, you already know you’re supporting a company that values people and the planet. The B Corps in this guide take it one step further — they are also part of the 1% for the Planet initiative, which means they give 1% of their sales to approved environmental nonprofits.
We’ve put together a guide to some beloved products and services from B Corps that give back.
