)-- Skin Care for Athletes is pleased to announce that they became part of the Class of 2008 when they were Certified as a B Corporation in December.
B Corporations are a new kind of company which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
B Corporations help us tell the difference between a “good company” and just good marketing. This is important for employees who want to bring their whole selves to work and for consumers, suppliers, and investors who want to support companies which make a positive impact on society.
“We became a B Corporation because we want to be associated with like-minded companies that believe in social and environmental responsibility. At the same time, we are demonstrating our commitment to our community, employees, consumers, environment and suppliers,” stated Taylor Sparks, Principal Goddess/Founder.
Skin Care for Athletes is one of four North Carolina B Corporations. As of January 2009, there are over 160 B Corporations in over 31 industries, representing over a $900 million marketplace. Over the next few years, these numbers will grow to hundreds of B Corporations and a multi-billion marketplace, all building collective voice for “good companies.
