While we’re still working hard on the B Corp process, we’d like to share our current in-tandem project that we’re really excited about.

We’re volunteering our resources to help get this off the ground and raise awareness about B Corps in Maine. Curious to learn more about this, or if it’s something your business would like to be part of? We’re happy to share a sneak peek into these early stages! By: Becky McKinnell
