Celebrate ‘well’ this season with B Corps
As we approach the holiday season this year, there has never been a better time to celebrate ‘wellness’ as one of the most precious parts of our lives.

As we approach the holiday season this year, there has never been a better time to celebrate ‘wellness’ as one of the most precious parts of our lives. And this doesn’t just relate to physical health and wellbeing. At Equinox, we believe in celebrating ‘wellness’ in all its forms – physical, mental and social. So, in the time of gifting, we wanted to celebrate some of our favourite B Corp businesses that offer products and services that support your wellness inside and out.
Often described as the Fairtrade of business, B Corps are ethical, environmental, socially minded businesses. B Corp is a rigorous global sustainability certification that assesses companies on their ethics and more importantly actions that promote and impact social and environmental wellbeing.
If you’ve ever found yourself wondering who made this product, where did they source the materials or is it sustainable, you’re probably someone that cares about the ethics behind your purchases. This is great! But it can be time consuming. So instead of checking the credentials of each and every business you buy from, simply shop B Corp and all the hard work’s done for you.
Looking for the B Corp logo is a great way of finding genuinely sustainable products in a sea of greenwashing.
Loads of B Corps are making wonderful gifts, that are ethically sourced, often made from sustainable materials and gorgeously guilt-free. So, do you know someone that’s trying to be less wasteful? This is the perfect time to buy them something from a B Corp. You could buy gifts that replace wasteful things like single-use items, you could look for sustainable materials like cotton or bamboo or opt for something like a reusable water bottle – it’s a great stocking filler.
To treat that special someone that wants to be more eco-conscious, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite B Corp brands. Because every time we shop, we get a chance to make a difference. And all of our shopping choices add up, so it’s important to make choices that promote wellbeing in the things we buy and the companies we choose to buy from.

Why not buy a subscription?
One of the best presents we can give this year is a subscription – you’ll be giving someone something they’ll actually use, there’s no waste and it might even make them think about their shopping choices too. Why not send the gift of wellbeing to your loved ones with a subscription of healthy kombucha? Now that’s better than socks, surely?
Also our friends at fellow B Corp Oddbox are also offering a special discount of 50% off your first box, on all subscriptions purchased in December. Oddbox rescues delicious fresh fruit and veg that may otherwise have gone to waste directly from farmers and delivers it to your front door in a weekly or fortnightly subscription. If you want to reduce your impact on the planet by taking action on food waste, join Oddbox’s mission and get 50% off your first box.
