Looptworks Named Best For The World™ 2021

July 14, 2021

We’re especially proud to be a B Corp on days like these. Today, B Lab announced that Looptworks has been ranked in the top 5% of B Corp companies worldwide in the Community category. This ranking designates us a Best For The World company for our positive impact. Here’s a brief look at what got us here.

Our products have one of the lowest carbon footprints on the market.


Our upcycled products not only have the lowest carbon footprint of any products on the market, they conserve massive amounts of water, embodied energy, carbon emissions, and physical waste. It’s important to note that our impact goes beyond our singular effort — we partner with large multinational corporations and small companies to help them achieve their zero waste to landfill and zero carbon footprint goals, leading to significant impacts.

 

We partner with community-focused nonprofit organizations.

We work with organizations that create jobs and provide job training for adults with barriers to employment. We consistently strive to integrate people with diverse voices and backgrounds throughout our entire process. By baking these partnerships into our supply chain, we create positive impact with every order, project, and contract.

We strive to use suppliers that are majority owned by women or BIPOC.

Currently, over 30% + of our suppliers fall into this category. Additionally, we aim to choose locally owned suppliers to stay engaged in our community and support the local economy.


We pivoted our product offerings to supply local groups with masks during the pandemic.


During the pandemic, we saw an urgent need to serve the hospitals, nursing homes, first responders (police, fire, and rescue), corporations, and individuals in our communities by making masks and gowns. We also partnered with the Portland B Corp community to provide masks to those experiencing houselessness and underserved youth through partnerships and donations to Central City Concern and the Boys and Girls Club of Portland.

We focus our business on being a force for good — every single day.

We’ve built Looptworks to solve the problem of textile waste — a problem which has created a negative impact both socially and environmentally. By ensuring we always keep the solution central to the work we do, making a positive impact has become inherently embedded into everything we do.

We want to extend a huge thank you to our customers and partners! Each and every one of you is making a positive impact by choosing to play an active role in closing the loop on waste.
