“Best for Colorado will introduce our CSR Manager to peers who can share ideas and build a network of people who guide their companies and hold their colleagues accountable to use best practices.”

What matters most to us:

1908 Brands is growing quickly and we're focusing our B Corp efforts on building environmentally sustainable business practices. We've joined the PACE program and are working on waste, water and energy efficiency improvements as suggested by the assessors. We also joined the Eco-Cycle Green Star Business Program to work with a consultant to help train our employees on best practices, help us improve the lifecycle of our products, and help us create Zero-Waste events. We're donating 1% of our net revenue to environmentally focused non-profits including Leave No Trace, Community Fruit Rescue, Sheep Mountain Alliance and The Access Fund. We're scheduling financial health trainings for our employees to help them improve their ability to budget, stretch paychecks and plan for their financial futures.

What we learned:

Best for Colorado will introduce our CSR Manager to peers who can share ideas and build a network of people who guide their companies and hold their colleagues accountable to use best practices.

What we did as a result:

We connected to the PACE program, which has been awesome and has provided recommendations for improvements. PACE’s suggestions helped us create positive change in our working environment and it encouraged us to become a green star business and to live out how we encourage others to live.
