It’s a big week for Sink Spinner! We have been approved as a Pending B Corp! Why should you care? Keep reading.
When we launched Sink Spinner last year, we decided to not only create a product that would save time and money but one that would make the world a better place. We didn’t want to stop there, we wanted to build a company that was better in every way, that’s why we decided to apply to be a B Corp.
What is a B Corp?
A B Corp is a company that creatively and passionately supports the environment, people, communities, and the planet. Not only do they speak about creating a positive impact; they actually do it.
A new company in the first year of operations is not eligible to be a certified B Corp, but startups within their first year of business can apply for something called Pending B Corp status. We started our application almost immediately after filing our corporate papers. We updated our legal documents to include stakeholders that included people and planet as well as profit. To become a pending B Corp, we also completed our first assessment of our business against each of the criteria above.
What does this mean for Sink Spinner?
1. We are committed to making the world better.
2. We are legally required to consider the impact of our decisions on society, not just shareholders
3. We’d like to help other companies use their business as a force for good
4. We have already made commitments to reduce our environmental footprint and help customers save water.
What are the next steps?
Sink Spinner is an innovative company that cares about the environment and wants to protect it. Over the next 12 months, we will continue as a Pending B Corp. But our goal is to be fully certified as a B Corp, following all guidelines for full status and sustainability! We are excited for this journey ahead – one step at a time.
