We’re already three months into 2023 (we can’t believe it either!), so we wanted to do another roundup of a few health and wellness brands to keep an eye on for your future needs this year! Most importantly, they're some of our favorite B‑Corporations. As a certified B‑Corp ourselves, we’re in the business of treating planet earth as the stakeholder it deserves to be.
B‑Corp brands undergo a rigorous certification process and must be willing to have their practices independently vetted by a third party—with their results always visible on the B‑Corp Directory. It’s about codifying business practices to be a source of good for people and the planet, and we’re proud to be a part of this actionable, accountable community. B‑Corps strive to continuously build on these practices as they get recertified every 3 years.
Here are 5 B‑Corp brands that are committed to helping customers live a healthy, purposeful lifestyle in 2023 (and beyond) while meeting the highest-verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
If improving your sleep hygiene is one of your 2023 goals, Certified Organic and non-toxic mattress and bedding brand, Avocado has you covered. They are on a mission to make healthy sleep accessible and affordable, with mattresses designed in Hoboken and handmade in California, and environmentally conscious, ethical, and sustainable manufacturing practices across the entire supply chain. The first mattress company to become Climate Neutral Certified, their factories are powered by renewable energy and are approaching zero waste. Additionally, Avocado donates 1% of all corporate revenue to vetted environmental nonprofits. An incredible brand with fantastic products, you can rest and feel great about your eco-friendly bedding from Avocado.
