About B Corp™

Big Green Smile was set up with one goal in mind – to make it easier for people to buy planet-friendly products whatever their budget. B Corp™ certification is a promise to our customers that we’ll stick to our values, and that we’ll keep pushing to improve.

There are now more than 6,000 B Corps™ across the world. Together, we’re making businesses fairer for workers, customers, communities and the environment. For us, that means everything from only selling eco-friendly products, to paying our staff a living wage, delivering great customer service and working towards net-zero.


What is a B Corp™?

The ‘B’ stands for ‘Benefit for all’, which sums B Corps™ up rather well. To become a B Corp™, companies have to meet high social and environmental standards. It’s a rigorous process – we had to provide evidence on a huge range of topics, from water & energy use to diversity & inclusion.

But that’s the whole point – if you spot the B Corp™ logo on a brand’s site, you can trust they’ve earned it. And crucially, to become a B Corp™, companies have to legally commit to making a positive impact on society and the environment.


Not surprisingly, many of the brands we stock are also B Corps™, including Faith in Nature, Bio-D, Cheeky Panda, Klean Kanteen, Weleda  and Beauty Kitchen. In fact, we sell more than 700 products from certified B Corps.


What’s next?

B Corp™ certification is just one step in a long journey, so we’re certainly not going to sit back and say ‘job done’. For one thing, we’ve got big plans to reduce plastic even further, and we’re on track to reach net-zero for our Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030.
