B Corp Consumer Guide

Good Day Girl is a proudly certified B Corp. This means we're part of an incredible group of businesses unified by the goal to balance profit with purpose, and use business as a force for good.

The B Corp certification process is tough. It looks at every angle to verify social and environmental impact, public transparency and legal accountability and makes sure nothing is left unturned. This tough love means that every certified B Corp really is a top-notch business and for us consumers, it's a green flag for where to choose to spend our dollar.

By supporting B Corp brands we are supporting a movement for good. So this month (...and beyond!) we've been celebrating some amazing fellow Australian B Corps and we invite you to do the same! Here's a guide for just some of the amazing B's you can look at for.

Alter Eco chocolates  "Enlightened indulgence" - yes please! These local B's produce delicious organic, non-gmo chocolates which contain no emulsifiers or artificial flavours - but they mean much more than chocolate. Becoming B Corp certified in 2009, they then became a Public Public Benefit Corporation in 2013. This means they hold themselves accountable to more than just profits and must meet the highest standards for verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability!
