A Declaration of Interdependence

As a proud member of the B Corp movement, we believe strongly in the Declaration of Interdependence. As a B Corporation and a leader of this emerging economy, we believe:  


  • That we must be the change we seek in the world.
  • That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
  • That, through our products, practices, and profits, our business should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
  • To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
