b corporations™ (b corps) are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for good, they meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. b corp™’s performance standards are comprehensive, transparent and verified. they measure a company’s impact on all its stakeholders (e.g. workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment). they are the businesses we admire, and strive to become.
and today, we are proud to announce that stasher is officially a certified b corporation®!
“being a part of the b corps™ family was top of mind for us, as we wanted to ensure that the dna of our company stayed intact,” said kat nouri, ceo and founder of stasher.
as a b corp™ we’re not only producing a sustainable product that helps the environment, but we are mindful and responsible of our brand’s influence on the community and environment around us.
“as our company grows, the founding values, and our passion in what we are building and the impact it will have will always stay top of mind,” nouri said.
here at stasher we’re constantly measuring our impact on both the community and the environment and aiming for the smallest footprint. our b corp™ certification is an indication of our commitment to doing business for better and redefining success in business. certified 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.
to become a certified b corporation®, stasher went through a rigorous assessment of our entire business (not just the product) including our mission, corporate accountability, transparency, civic engagement, suppliers & distributors, and more.
“we believe in creating something greater than ourselves, a movement to bring awareness and education towards the health and environmental consequences of plastic use by providing a better alternative,” nouri said.
stasher joins more than 1,800 certified b corporations® from more than 120 industries in 50 countries, including patagonia, ben & jerry’s, klean kanteen, seventh generation, and the honest company.
“liberating food from plastic is our mission. becoming a b corp™ is a symbol of our enduring values.”
