Certified B-Corporation

The Bear James Company is certified B-Corp through the non-profit B Lab, meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our customers.

We knew from day one we wanted to be a business for change, creating something we could be proud of, and something that leaves a larger legacy beyond an awesome website. B-Corp certification enables us to quantify and show the world how we care about our social and ecological impact as much as making money.

We’re proud to join thousands of Certified B Corps around the globe, including Ben & Jerry’s, Patagonia, Kickstarter, and The Honest Company. We genuinely hope that one day everyone uses business as a force for good.
