What is a B Corp?
Becoming a B Corp means we are dedicated to find a better balance between purpose and profit. Certification is administered by the non-profit organization called B Labs. It not only helps us validate the positive impact we are having on our community and keeps us accountable into the future, it highlights the areas we need to improve. This certification underlines our active commitment to meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
We are committed to incorporate sustainability, less impactful processes, and recycled components into all our products. As a manufacturer, our B corp certification pushes us to reduce our impact throughout the entire supply chain.
Our products are not just built better, they are built responsibly. Built with purpose, to perform better and last longer so you buy less often.
Our Impact Score
Our score is based on the B Corp assessment which evaluates how our company’s operations and business model impact our workers, community, environment, and customers through a rigorous surveying and point system. Passing our impact assessment with a score of over 80 puts us in the company of other amazing brands like Patagonia and Ben & Jerry's.

Reducing our Pawprint
Since taking ownership of our properties we’ve added low water landscaping, efficient thermostats, recycling bins, and replaced all lighting with LED’s. Making targeted investments in our energy efficiency helped us cut utility costs. For things like ocean freight, we invest in carbon offsets. We’ve been able to reduce our carbon footprint by reducing energy usage.
