Mamava is excited to announce our new membership with Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility (VBSR). While we’re already a certified B Corporation, we are excited about this new partnership with VBSR as it not only reinforces are values, but it strengthens our ties to the community where we got our roots: Burlington, Vermont. If you’ve never been, Burlington (and Vermont at large!) is a pretty unique place, especially this time of year when the evenings turn cool, and the crisp morning air holds a sweet lingering smell of fresh apples and damp leaves.
And while the sweet cider and fall foliage may be what lures people here this time of year, year-round Vermont boasts an absolutely amazing community with a thriving presence of socially minded businesses. Companies as varied as Cabot Creamery Cooperative, Green Mountain Power, Burton Snowboards, andSeventh Generation, collectively represent just a handful of the amazing 760 members that make up VBSR. We couldn’t be more proud to stand alongside such values-aligned companies, working to really shed a positive impact on this planet.
As a start-up, Mamava is excited to both educate and learn from fellow VBSR members. As Allison Hooper, of Vermont Creamery states: “..if you wanna lead, you’ve gotta show up with other leaders and engage in the conversation.” And that’s just what we intend to do.
