How Brands are Bringing the B Corp Movement to Life
Silk is trying to do its part by developing plant-based food systems that work in harmony with nature and help restore the land. Its plant-based beverages have a lower carbon footprint than US conventional dairy milk. Silk balances all the water used in its manufacturing facilities to make its products, restoring it back to nature. As the first Charter Sponsor of the Change the Course program in 2013, Silk has supported over 35 projects in water-stressed locations helping restore more than 8.7 billion gallons of fresh water.
So Delicious Dairy Free
A brand that welcomes everyone to its table, So Delicious Dairy Free is working to improve the well-being of its farmer partners through a new, long-term project. In August 2021, the brand launched the Good People Loop, a program that starts with empowering our coconut farmer partners across our supply chain with a holistic training approach offering education, resources and tools to support their social and economic empowerment. Starting with coconuts, by promoting organic farming and helping coconut farmers implement more sustainable, regenerative farming practices, So Delicious Dairy Free aims to increase crop yields by 50 percent and increase our coconut farmer partner income by 100 percent over the next five years, to help alleviate poverty and give them a fair shot to thrive in the global economy.
Horizon Organic has a strong commitment to people, the planet and animals. As the climate changes, the brand’s actions and the way they farm must evolve with it. As pioneers in the organic industry, Horizon is devoted to raising the bar to ensure they are respecting the world while creating the best milk possible. Horizon Organic, the largest USDA certified organic dairy brand in the world, has committed to becoming carbon positive across its full supply chain by 2025. For Horizon, carbon positive means achieving net-zero carbon emissions and going above and beyond by removing or preventing additional carbon from entering the atmosphere. Achieving this commitment will make Horizon Organic the first national dairy brand to be carbon positive.
