START A PETITION 25,136,189 members: the world's largest community for good

B Corporation LogoAlmost two years ago, Care2 became a B Corporation, joining a handful of other companies with the distinguished "B" certification.

Today, there are over 300 B Corporations - all have committed to a better way to do business. Each certified B Corporation has had to meet high standards of social and environmental performance and all are making a difference every day by strengthening local communities and protecting the environment.

We want to help get the word out, so starting this week we're launching our participation in a new marketing campaign with B Lab, the good folks behind the B Corporation certification. You can read about some great fellow B Corps on our Trailblazers for Good blog and you'll be seeing some new ads on the Care2 site featuring B Corps we think you'll like.

I believe business is one of the most powerful forces on the planet - and business that truly do good can be some of the most powerful forces to help create a more sustainable, just and healthy world. Companies that carry the B Corp logo are working to achieve this same vision.

Here are a few B Corporations working to make a difference:
  • Barkwheats wants to change the way people think about dog biscuits and kibble. They are not only a B Corp, but also Fair Trade certified. 95% of the ingredients they use comes from local sources and the other 5% comes from other Fair Trade sources. The packaging they use is also 100% compostable.
  • The team at Recyclebank has built a business on rewarding people for doing good. By placing microchips in recycle bins, they are able to track and reward points to households that recycle. The points can be used at over 2,000 different businesses.
  • Give Something Back is an office supply company that we use at Care2 since they offer green and recycled products and also believe in giving back to the community.

I hope that you'll check out these companies
and the other 300+ B Corporations who are using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

Care2 cares for all; so do you Randy with your painstaking findings. As a new member of Care2 and the Founder/CEO of Yes-Now, Inc. I find Care2 highly rewarding in terms of networking and beneficial information.
Lest I forget, Yes-Now, Inc. is a non-profit organization helping AIDS orphans and widows in Africa, as well as educating the people on how to go green.

This is not my preferred way of contacting Care2 but it may be the only one possible. Telephone contact says "No one in our directory has a name that starts with those letters" regardless of which letters I enter - no one has answered the two or three e-mails I sent to Care 2 with a question about how one can address a Care2 Greeting Card (a feature previously easily available). Sorry to disturb you, but this is my third try at contacting Care2 on this issue --- Tom Connors

Randy, I am highly honored by your acknowledgement. I believe in the saying that “Shining Stars are Hope Fulfilled, and Hope Fulfilled is a Pitcher of Joy.” Care2 is making us Shining Stars that fulfill Hope for others and enable them drink from the noble Pitcher of Joy. Therefore, I doff my hat for Care2, its entire staff and community.
