What are B Corporations?
B Corp is a movement that seeks to redefine success in business so that companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but also to be the best for the world, and to deliver positive impact for people and the planet, as well as generating profit.
Certified B Corporations (B Corps for short) are for-profit businesses that include social and/or environmental outcomes as part of their mission. They are certified by B Lab a nonprofit organization that certifies companies as meeting the highest standards of environmental and social performance, accountability and transparency.
The Stitched team has worked hard to meet the standards required to join the B Corp community as a Pending B (it's a little bit like Patent Pending). In a year's time we hope to graduate to full certification.
Why did we decide to join the movement?
B Corp is a movement built around doing things better, which fits our mission. We care a lot about the impact Stitched has on society and the environment, and it seems our customers do too - they care about the things they buy, where they come from and how they're made. Responsible buying and the responsible business isn't going away. That is why we will tell you as much as we can about how and where your products are made. Where we don't have the answers, we'll try to find them. And with the support of the B Corp community, we will strive to increase the positive impact our business has on the world.
