Singlebrook recently connected with Guayaki Yerba Mate through the B Corp network. We’re fans of their organic, caffeinated herbal beverage, yerba mate, and have become even bigger fans after learning about the company’s efforts to preserve the habitats and cultures of the areas of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay that supply their mate. Their interactive Impact Report is an innovative way of showcasing these efforts.
Preserve Gimme 5 is a program that turns disposable items that commonly end up in a landfill into recycled plastic. The program uses a free iPhone app--Preserve Gimme 5, that allows users to locate the nearest #5 plastic drop off center where they can recycle Brita water filters, yogurt cups and other containers, as well as Preserve toothbrushes and disposable razors.
Preserve is the manufacturer of high-quality, super eco-friendly home products, including toothbrushes, razors, kitchen items and tableware. Preserve products carry catchy tag lines like “Powered by leftovers” and “Powered by yogurt cups” (through a partnership with Stonyfield Farm yogurt). Their products are all made in the USA, and Preserve is a B Corp, so you know they pass high standards to certify their sustainability efforts.
This past June we co-hosted a public event with our friends and fellow B Corp, Comet Skateboards and members of the B Lab staff. Photos from the event are available on Facebook. It was a gathering to learn about the B Corporation movement.
