Keen to invest in sustainable clothing brands that are doing their bit to counter climate change? Look no further, as we've rounded up our go-to B Corp brands truly doing their bit to build a better tomorrow.

This March marks B Corp month, an entire month dedicated to celebrating the certification and inspiring people globally to shop more sustainably. The theme of this year's B Corp Month? "This Way Forward," encouraging others to look to B Corp businesses and the changes they are making to better both business and the planet. 

Bringing together companies across 96 countries and 162 industries - all who tirelessly work to improve their impact. “During B Corp Month, we want to shine a spotlight on B Corps – innovative companies that are leading the way forward across the world, having a positive impact on people, communities, and the planet,” said Juliette Caulkins, Executive Director of B Lab Europe. 

Not sure what a B Corp is or why is buying from certified B Corp brands so important? In short, it's a certification which indicates that a business is genuinely doing good. Buying from them is important because, if the UN's IPCC report taught us anything, it's to be kind. Not just to ourselves or each other, but to our planet, too, with the "code red" report last year showing that it's nearly too late. 

Sadly, shopping sustainably can feel like a minefield at the best of times. How do you avoid greenwashing? And identify brands endorsing fast fashion? And spot ethical clothing brands from the not-so-ethical?

By looking for the B Corp stamp of approval, that's how. While it's not the be all and end all - there are many smaller, independent sustainable brands that don't have a B Corp certification yet - it is a really easy way to identify if a brand is actually doing good sustainability-wise, and opting for businesses practices that don't harm our planet.

Keen to read up on what it actually means and which B Corp brands are our favourite? Keep reading.

B Corp brands: so, what is a B Corp?

Fun fact: as of February 2024, there are 8,254 certified B Corporations across 162 industries in 96 countries. In 2022, the UK reached 1,000 certified B Corp businesses - which is a lot. But what does being B Corp actually mean?

As stated on the Certified B Corporation website, B Corp brands:

"Meet high standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy."

Or, in simpler terms, a B Corp brand is a sustainable company that puts sustainable practice first.

And people are certainly starting to understand the importance of B Corp, too, with new statistics from the B Lab brand showing that one in seven people have heard of the B Corp movement in Europe.

3. Allbirds

Allbirds have been making merino wool footwear - what they call 'the world's best natural materials' - for years now, and were certified B Corp in 2016.

Working with engineer and renewables expert Joey Zwillinger, they made Allbirds - shoes made from mother nature's materials that don't harm the planet. Win, win.

How do you become a Certified B Corporation?

Good question.

According to the B Corp website, the assessment 'evaluates how your company’s operations and business model impact your workers, community, environment, and customers. From your supply chain and input materials to your charitable giving and employee benefits, B Corp Certification proves your business is high standards of verified social and environmental performance.'

So, essentially, it takes a deep dive into your business model and practices to make sure every step of the process is sustainable for both people and planet. B Corp brands treat employees well, and the planet well, too.

Only brands verified by their 'B Lab' actually make it to B Corp status - it's notoriously thorough and difficult to get the badge of honour, making sure only businesses who are genuinely going the extra mile are accredited.

It's not-for-profit and wants to inspire people globally to use business as a force of good.

Plus, B Corp brands don't claim to be perfect - actually, far from it. The stamp means they're doing the best they can - and a fair bit more than most brands without the stamp - and, as per the Propercorn website, a certified B Corp, are 'alike in their motivation to do more and grow in the right way'.

Why should you buy from a B Corp?

So, why is buying from these businesses so important? Silly question, really: we're facing a climate crisis and, if we don't change our ways soon, risk destroying our planet.

Shopping with brands making a difference is not longer just a nice way to reduce your carbon footprint - it's essential for everyone to survive.

How do you identify a B Corp brand?

It's pretty simple: just look out for the below logo on the packaging or website of your favourite brands.

Most of the time, it'll be displayed with pride the bottom of their homepage, on their social media, or on their packaging. Keep an eye out.

B Corp brands: The B Corp logo
