2023 B Corp Month



Every March, the global community of Certified B Corporations comes together to celebrate our commitment to using business as a force for good. As a B Corp, we recognize the power of business to create lasting change, and work to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. B Corp Month is a time to recognize the growing movement of businesses that prioritize social and environmental impact alongside profit, and celebrate the positive impact we are making in our communities and around the world.

We are kicking off this year's celebration with an exciting announcement: We have converted RBW Factory to 100% green energy!

The move to powering our 100,000 sq. ft. headquarters with sustainable energy has saved 835,324 kWh, the equivalent of an entire year of energy usage for 75 homes. As a B Corp, we strive to make a positive impact on both the planet and our community.

Going green was an obvious choice. We're thrilled to have RBW running on sustainable wind power with Hudson Energy.

We're eager to participate in initiatives that have a positive impact on our local community. Recently we had the opportunity to take part in community efforts with a contribution to the Kingston YMCA Farm Project!

The Kingston YMCA Farm Project provides greater food access and learning opportunities with their food production, farm-based education, youth employment, and winter cooking programs. Through urban farming and local outreach, the Farm Project has become a hub for community connectivity and engagement.

The Kingston YMCA Farm Project's youth empowerment program employs Kingston youth in meaningful work that positively impacts our community. Youth Crew members grow fruits and vegetables on an urban farm, run community-based farm stands, build garden beds for homes and organizations, prepare meals for Community Fridges, and so much more.

We are so grateful that RBW recognizes the power and importance of this program.

Organic waste comprises an estimated 20-40% of the solid waste stream that ends up in landfills. Organic matter breaks down slowly in landfills due to limited oxygen, contributing to methane gas production. Through making a small change like composting, we not only produce enriching fertilizer for our plants around the factory, but we also reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Small changes can make a big impact! We're taking steps to reduce our waste at RBW Factory by recycling and composting our kitchen and warehouse scraps.

Composting our kitchen scraps helps divert waste from landfills and provides nutrient rich soil we can use for plants around the Factory. It's a win-win!
