20+ B Corp Companies to Brighten Your Workday

Think about the coffee shop where you grab your coffee or tea during the workday. Does the company running it share your values? You probably don’t know whether the worker handing over your drink makes a living wage, or if the shop prioritizes sustainability. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to find out: Use B Lab’s searchable B Corp directory to check whether the shop is a Certified B Corp.

Certified B CorporationAs part of our B Corp Month celebration in March, our team at The FruitGuys did just that. We used B Lab’s directory to find B Corps in eleven major cities around the country. If you work in one of those cities, these are ethical, sustainable spots to grab a coffee, meet up with coworkers for lunch or after-work drinks, learn about new programs for your office, buy workplace necessities, and more. 

Before we dive into the list, though, let’s talk about B Corp Certification and what it means for a business to be B Corp Certified. 

What is a B Corp?

B Corps are for-profit businesses that meet the highest standards of independently verified social and environmental performance, accountability, and public transparency. The nonprofit B Lab is responsible for the certification, and it only awards it to companies that pass through a rigorous examination of employee benefits, charitable giving, supply chain sustainability, and more. The FruitGuys is a certified B Corp, as are all of the companies on the list below. (You can see The FruitGuys’ B Impact Score from B Lab here.)
