Certifications aren't everything.
But when it comes to textiles, it's important for us to know that someone is backing up everything we're doing. That we're doing what we really set out to do. Made better, for you, for people and for planet.
It's why we chose to be audited by Fairtrade International. Why we use only 100% GOTS certified organic and Fairtrade cotton (the global 'golden' standard).
And why we went through the extensive process of being vetted and questioned. Providing proof of everything we are doing to become the very first Australian linen and sleepwear business to be Certified as a B Corporation.
We're pretty happy to say that we didn't just pass, but we are one of the highest scoring businesses in homewares across the nation, with almost double the points.
So what is a B Corporation?
Well... in their own words:
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
Certifying as a B Corporation goes beyond product- or service-level certification. B Corp Certification is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance.
The B Impact Assessment evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact workers, community, environment, and customers. From supply chain and input materials to charitable giving and employee benefits, B Corp Certification proves business is meeting the highest standards of verified performance.
It took a lot of work, but we're so proud to be able to start to show, just a little, of all we are doing behind the scenes to prove business really can be done better. To have a positive impact on people and planet.
