Good Clean Love Becomes a Benefit Corporation
EUGENE, ORE– Eugene-based Good Clean Love was one of 24 companies which became a Benefit Corporation. These companies were ushered in on the first day of a new Oregon state law, which allows businesses to build social and environmental responsibility into their bylaws. Oregon joins 19 other states, including California and New York in enacting Benefit Corporation (B Corps) legislation. Oregon already boasts 37 nationally certified B Corps, which are significant contributors to the Oregon Economy with $309,790,109 in revenue.
The number of companies who believe in the power of business to solve social and environmental problems is becoming an army of goodness across the nation.
Benefit Companies now have the legal structure to build their mission into the daily workings of their business in order to create a materially positive impact on society, the environment, the community and the workforce.
Wendy Strgar, founder and CEO of Good Clean Love is thrilled to be one of the inaugural Oregon Benefit Companies. Strgar says: “Our mission has always been about love. We work every day to make sure that every aspect of our work, from how we choose suppliers to how we recycle our boxes is driven from the idea that we are privileged to be of service. Aligning ourselves with this very progressive business movement is an honor for us at Good Clean Love.”
This change of corporate structure comes at a new phase of development, as Good Clean Love products are now sold nationwide through Kroger stores and leading natural retailers including Whole Foods and Pharmaca.
Good Clean Love is now located at new global headquarters at 207 W. 5th Ave in Eugene, Oregon.
