We make choices of gifts for our loved ones and we put a great deal of thought into the gift. But we seldom think about the company or the people who created or manufactured those gifts. In this blog we’ll share connections to B Corporations that not only create great gifts… but they are committed to B the Change and do good for the world in sourcing their ingredients, respecting their employees, caring for the environment, and valuing their communities.
AMS Fulfillment is a B Corporation, and we know the changes in corporate culture that go along with the commitment we have made. As a result of our experience, we recommend the high quality gifts produced by B Corporations. A gift made by a B Corporation carries with it a little extra ‘love’.
In recognition of Black History Month, our first recommendation is a Black-owned B Corp called SOKO. Here’s what they tell us about their business: “It’s more than a promise, but a premise. As a certified B-corp, SOKO is built to empower artisan entrepreneurship. Your purchases directly impact their local communities while supporting the global creative economy.” Follow this link to shop at SOKO.
Our next recommendation is for those who love chocolate. The B Corp is called Lake Champlain Chocolates, and here’s what they tell us about their business: “Today, our pursuit of the extraordinary continues and our B Corporation certification exemplifies this. We are committed not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world by supporting cacao-growing communities and using 100% fair trade certified chocolate, reducing toxins in the environment by sourcing organic ingredients, whenever possible, and continuing to make extraordinary gourmet chocolates for all to enjoy.”
Finally, we are happy to share the recommendations of a B Corp called Rubicon. They have listed five excellent B Corps that are perfect for valentine shopping. Here’s what they say: “B good to yourself! No, that’s not a typo. The “B” stands for Benefit, as in Certified B Corporations. As a Certified B Corporation, we’re working toward a better future for people and the planet. It’s our greatest badge of honor. We set our own rigorous standards not just for environmental performance, but also social metrics. We give back to the communities where we live and work.”
Happy Valentines Day to all of the lovers, the likers, the huggers and the smilers at AMS Fulfillment. We are the ones who will B the Change we want to see in the world!
