As holidays approach, it is easy to get lost in the wave of meaningless consumerism. Fortunately, this does not have to be the case! Shopping for purpose-filled products that change our society has never been so simple!
Greyston Bakery proudly bears the legal status of a Benefit Corporation. B. Corps use business as a means of making real and lasting change.They view people and the environment holistically and attempt to positively impact both. Benefit Corporations are evaluated on their social and environmental sustainability, accountability and transparency. If you are interested in learning more, check out this link!
This legal status simplifies shopping sustainably and consciously, meaning you can give incredible gifts that truly make a difference this holiday season, without sacrificing quality. Greyston Bakery proudly stands amongst a host of change-makers, and we will be supporting many of these businesses when buying gifts for our loved ones. Some of our favorite apparel/footwear-selling B. Corporations are Patagonia, Project Repat and Dansko. For unique jewelry that empowers women, we are looking at Raven and Lily. And, of course, for all our party supply needs, we are purchasing sustainably produced products from Susty Party!
If you’re interested in supporting multiple Benefit Corporations at once, we have the perfect gift idea for you! We have partnered with the incredibly inspiring Alter Eco and our forever favorite Ben & Jerry’s to create the B the Change Gift Box or Basket. Both include Greyston brownies, Alter Eco Chocolate Truffles and a coupon for a free pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Can it get any better? Purchasing one of these options from Greyston Bakery allows us to continue baking to alleviate poverty, supports Alter Eco’s socially just and environmentally responsible practices and applauds Ben & Jerry’s for continuing to promote meaningful social change even as it has drastically grown in size. We stand together with businesses making a difference!
Have any ideas for a Greyston Brownie gift basket that incorporates products from other Benefit Corporations? We’d love to hear!
