Motherlove is now a certified B Corporation!

 

We are thrilled to announce that Motherlove Herbal Company is now a certified B Corporation!

What does it mean to be a certified B Corp?  The B Corporation designation is awarded to companies which use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

It’s like Fair Trade certification but for the whole business, not just a bag of coffee.  B Corps are important because they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.  There are over 1,300 Certified B Corporations from more than 120 industries in 41 countries with one unifying goal – to redefine success in business.

To become a Certified B Corporation, Motherlove went through a rigorous evaluation to determine if we met B Corporation standards for certification.  The standards are comprehensive and measure a company’s impact on all its stakeholders.  Unlike traditional corporations, B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (like our employees, our customers, the environment, and our community).

Sustainability.  Accountability.  Social and environmental responsibility.  These are values that run deep at Motherlove.  Since our earliest days over 25 years ago, when Kathryn Higgins started Motherlove in the kitchen of her family home, these values have guided us in decisions large and small.  They are the “why” behind everything we do.

We're so proud to be recognized for living these values, and we love sharing how we're working every day to be the most sustainable, responsible business we can be.  Here are a few highlights from our work toward this vision:
