While our businesses all do very different things, we all have one thing in common. We’re Certified B Corporations who meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance.
B Corp certification is to sustainable business what LEED certification is to green building or Fair Trade certification is to coffee.
We became a B Corp so that we could formally evaluate our efforts to build a business that offers more than just a collection of products. We are proud to evaluate and showcase the way our businesses impacts our employees, our community, and our planet. We want to help build a future where customers demand products and services are developed in environmentally conscious ways.
We can collectively make a big difference with the way we give gifts this season. When you’re shopping for everyone on your list this year - take time to learn more about the companies you’re supporting and look for the friendly B CORP Certification logo to know your money is going to a company that gives back to people and the planet.

TROPICAL TURMERIC CLEANSER - SERVES TWO 2 cups kale 2 cups coconut milk 2 cups pineapple 1 cup mango Juice of ½ lemon 1 Tablespoon fresh ginger ¼ to ½ teaspoon ground turmeric, to taste
You might think this smoothie would be really sweet with the pineapple and mango - but the fruit flavors are balanced out with cilantro and a hint of turmeric. Using coconut water as the base ups the hydration factor and it tastes clean and smooth without any ice or extra water. That’s the sign of a great smoothie recipe!
We’ll take any excuse to tap into our secret supply of ground turmeric that our friend Alice of Forestbound (fellow Fringe Union member) smuggled back for us from Sri Lanka.
From the smoothie novice, to blender pros, this book has something for everyone and would make a great gift for anyone trying to incorporate more smoothies into their daily routine.
