As Stonyfield Yo-Getter, this post is sponsored by Stonyfield Organics.
I’ve partnered with Stonyfield for nearly two years as part of their Stonyfield Yo-Getters blogger program. One of the reasons I am so passionate about this company is because of its mission to keep food and food production healthy while protecting the environment.
What started with just seven cows in 1983 has turned it the leading organic yogurt maker today. Thirty years later, Stonyfield still says no to to toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs – so important when I am deciding what to feed my kids!
“At Stonyfield, we’ve been on a mission to create food that’s good for us, our kids and the environment all along. 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 proud to join forces with a thoughtful group of businesses around the world who believe they have a responsibility to others. A responsibility to serve more than just shareholders. A responsibility to create social value. The movement is global, and the benefits are local for everyone.”
To recognize Stonyfield’s passion for the environment, its workers and the community, they were recently certified by the nonprofit B Lab. To be certified, a company meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency, which is why Stonyfield is now a Certified B Corporation (or B Corp, for short).
B Corps are better companies – better for workers, better for communities and better for the environment. Stonyfield is seated among a long list of 1600+ companies that strive to redefine success in business including King Arthur, Preserve (who makes toothbrushes from recycled Stonyfield yogurt cups), Pete & Gerry’s, Purely Elizabeth, Pukka and Method.
