For Immediate Release - March 20, 2019
(Guelph, Ontario)— In honour of B Corp Month and the launch of the Vote Everyday campaign, Guelph’s B Corp community has planned a scavenger hunt to show how many great B Corp businesses are in our city.
Many of these businesses you probably already know and love and, hopefully, this can be your introduction to those you do not. The scavenger hunt will bring awareness to the B Corp movement and offer a way for our local community to engage with the Canada-wide Vote Everyday Campaign.
As B Corporations and leaders in our local communities, we believe:
• That we must be the change we seek in the world.
• That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
• That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
• To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
The “Vote Every Day” campaign celebrates the importance of using business as a force for good, while educating stakeholders and consumers about the benefits of supporting Certified B Corporations by buying from, working for, and doing business with these companies.
Posters and a stack of score cards
will be available at select local businesses, as well as being available for download – completed cards can be handed in at Miijidaa. Our local B Corps have come together with some awesome prize packs for the winners! Social media will feature heavily as part of the scavenger hunt coverage to provide a glimpse into the activities in our community and to promote participating B Corp companies during the Vote Every Day campaign with the hashtags #heyguelphvotebcorp and #votebcorp. More information on the campaign can be found at https://bcorporation.net
The Scavenger Hunt will run from Tuesday, March 26, 2019 to Monday, April 15, 2019.
All submissions must be received at Miijidaa, 37 Quebec Street, by 6:00pm on Monday, April 15, 2019.
