What Does it Mean to be Certified B-Corporation and Why it Matters

Tired of greenwashing? Us too. It’s hard to figure out who’s making real efforts to be a sustainable business. B Corp ™ Certification to the rescue!! When you see this mark, you know a business is the real deal and you can feel good that they do good. B Corp ™ Certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to orange juice. It is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance. From the supply chain and input materials to charitable giving and employee benefits. B Corp ™ Certification proves a business is meeting the highest standards of verified performance. Our box partner Solmate Socks one of only 4,088 companies worldwide to receive this certification. To be certified, they had to go through a rigorous third-party verification process, documenting their dedication to environmental and social sustainability. With so much greenwashing going on out there, when you see a business has been B Corp ™ Certified, you can be confident they’re taking incredible efforts to do good for the planet. Watch the video below to learn more about what it means to be a Certified B Corps ™ To really dig in, check out their website https://bcorporation.net/

Charcuterie Board made from Premium Grade Acacia, sustainably sourced by Let’s Go

Eco (Toronto, ON) MSRP: $55 CDN

Acacia is a natural wood that is becoming popular for use in charcuterie and cutting boards. Acacia is a dark, tropical and strong hardwood that shares similar colors with teak and walnut but is a more sustainable option. Acacia is prized both for its beauty, strength and durability. Plus, at 1/2 inches thick, this charcuterie board can handle any accidental drops, chops or tug-a-wars. Every piece of Acacia wood has a unique look due to the variable pattern of its grain and its gorgeous tones and shades of colors that varies from light amber through to dark mahogany. The wood has a rustic appeal to it, making it a simple and timeless piece that blend easily with any style preference – from shabby chic to sophisticated and elegant. With over 1,300 species of acacia world-wide, acacia is an abundant and fast-growing species that is forest-friendly, not on any endangered list. These boards are food grade, FSC certified and grown without the use of pesticides, fertilizer or irrigation. With all these benefits, Acacia is quickly becoming a popular, beautiful and sustainable choice for kitchens around the world.
