- Greyston Bakery: Located in Southwest Yonkers, New York, this B-Corporation is best known for baking the brownies you enjoy in a Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream. The company prides itself on offering personal development tools and professional training to give anyone who works there the best chance of success. It accepts all applicants regardless of previous incarceration, homelessness, or drug use.
- Happy Organic is a three-generation business of beekeepers. First started in Mexico, the company began when the father of the family was diagnosed with cancer, and could no longer tend to the bees. So, his children found a way to use this same honey, and infuse it with CBD to improve his pain. As it turned out, there was a long list of therapeutic benefits to CBD and honey, which you can read about more on their site.
- Bombas: Another classic, Bombas got its start on Shark Tank. Despite Shark Daymond John saying he immediately tuned them out and was thinking about the next pitch, the quality of their socks won him over. Bombas has since expanded beyond just socks and is currently the most successful company to come out of the show.
- Patagonia: This is a company you'll see on many "best Shopify sites" because its shop is complicated (it has quite a few products!), but organized beautifully with sections and subsections. Not only does Patagonia guarantee everything it makes, but the team focuses on environmental and social responsibility, and pledges 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. As one of the largest outdoor brands, Patagonia does a fabulous job illustrating what makes the company unique and makes it easy to find what you need in just a few clicks.
- Cheekbone Beauty has a great story, and it makes sure to highlight that right on the homepage of its Shopify store. All of the company's products are vegan and cruelty-free, and it has a commitment to become waste-free by 2023. The kicker? Not only is Cheekbone's product sustainable and good for the environment (it uses 85% less plastic than traditional lipstick tubes), but the team donates 10% of their profits each year.
