.1 BEAR is extremely proud to be a certified B Corporation. Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. It’s a holistic, rigorous and independent certification awarded to businesses that have an explicit social or environmental mission. After an 18-month process, we are proud to be part of a community of leaders that drive a global movement; 2,700 companies in over 150 industries, spanning 64 countries with one unifying goal: to redefine success in business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
.2 As a certified B Corporation, we have a legally binding fiduciary responsibility to take into account the interests of workers, the community and the environment. We track our environmental footprint across all facets of our business, from sourcing the highest quality ingredients, to our conscious design and sustainable packaging. We actively educate our suppliers and partners on our environmental objectives and consistently develop new ways to minimise our ecological impact. We are committed to improving our business practices and neutralising resources we have used in our processes through initiatives such as recycling, planting trees, carbon offsetting flights, minimising our water, electricity, carbon dioxide and waste, and giving back to the community.
.3 We use fully recyclable and recycled pharmaceutical grade amber glass jars with natural FSC certified paper stock. All of our products are free from animal derived ingredients, GMO’s, and harmful toxins including BPA’s and phthalates. We are proud to be working with Australian modern conservation movements, WildArk and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, to help protect and conserve the wonders of the natural world and the wildlife that inhabit them.
For each product you purchase, BEAR donates a fixed dollar amount to WildArk and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. To celebrate #BCorpMonth we encourage you to search for and support certified B Corporations to help restore the stability, integrity and beauty of our planet.
