As an educated consumer, the best way to influence change is by the way you allocate your spendable income. With each purchase at the grocery store, you are supporting a companies bottom line. Best case scenario as a consumer is to find companies that have values that align with your own. Purchase their products and share with your friends and family why you love their products and the mission behind the corporation. I choose to support businesses that are a Certified B Corporation!
Congratulations to Stonyfield Organic! After meeting the performance and legal requirements, Stonyfield is officially a Certified B Corporation!
“At Stonyfield, we think about the impact of everything we do—from what’s in the cup and how it’s made, to how it gets to you. We’ve been on a mission to create food that’s good for us, our kids and the environment all along. We don’t have all the answers, but we believe it’s important to take care of the world around us to make food that you can feel good about feeding your family.
We are very proud to join forces with a thoughtful group of businesses around the world who believe they have a responsibility to others, to serve more than just shareholders and to create social value. The movement is global, and the benefits are local for everyone.” ~ Stonyfield Organic
“The B Corp movement is one of the most important of our lifetime, built on the simple fact that business impacts and serves more than just shareholders—it has an equal responsibility to the community and to the planet.” ~Rose Marcario, CEO of Patagonia

After spending an evening with Gary Hirshberg, the co-founder of Stonyfield while I was on the Stonyfield Farm Tour. His passion and dedication to create a wholesome product while making the earth a better place was immediately apparent. His testimony about how Stonyfield Organic came to fruition gave me hope in humanity. There are big corporate executives that give back and are invested in the well being of each and every one of their consumers and employees. I encourage you to seek out a Certified B Corporation to show your support for their business.
