Certified B Corporations Launch the ‘Vote Every Day’ Campaign
Top Business Leaders Join Forces to Show People How They Can Continue Voting Their Values After Election Day
(New York, New York)— Certified B Corporations—a global community of more than 2,600 companies (including IceStone) using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems—have launched the “Vote Every Day” campaign following the midterm elections. The launch of the campaign comes at a critical moment when voters have just finished casting their ballots in one of the most consequential elections in recent history. Voting is one of the most important acts any person can do. Once ballots are cast on Election Day, people can continue to vote their values every day by supporting B Corps.
The Vote Every Day campaign was created to encourage people to support the same causes that B Corps practice which includes: reducing inequality, lowering levels of poverty, designing a healthier environment, creating more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose, and building a more inclusive and sustainable economy. B Corps are brands people can trust because they are verified to meet the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility, accountability, and transparency.
IceStone manufactures sustainable countertops and surfaces made from recycled glass, cement, and non-toxic pigments. Located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in Brooklyn, NY, IceStone also practices sustainability in it’s factory using a recycling water system, electric/hybrid forklifts, steam powered kilns, and natural light. Employees earn a living wage, and have ownership in the company. IceStone has been in business for 15 years, and to date, has saved over 16 million pounds of glass from being dumped in landfills.
