As we head into the 4th of July weekend, we’re feeling excitement, patriotism and we’re ready to celebrate! We’ve been rooting on Team USA in the World Cup and we’re definitely feeling the USA love around Dogeared these days. But, it’s YOUR love has kept our dreams alive! Because of you, our commitment as a certified B Corporation to create a beautiful community and meaningful handcrafted designs in the USA has never been stronger.
Dogeared was founded on the principle of putting positive, peaceful and loving energy into the world. From the beginning, we have handcrafted our jewelry locally, employed sustainable business practices & partnered with non-profits.
Today, Dogeared is proud to join the community of nearly 900 Certified B Corporations in over 29 countries to launch the first international #BtheChange campaign in an ongoing, global effort to celebrate and reward people using business as a force for good. B Corporations use the power of business to affect change in the global community’s social and environmental problems.
The #BtheChange movement is an effort by the entire B Corp community who have met the most rigorous standards for social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability as businesses. Dogeared has been certified for over 3 years with a commitment to the world that we’re a company that cares.
Dogeared will continue to serve as a leader and help influence other companies to use their business as a force for good. A special thank you to our customers for supporting a better way to do business. By taking a deeper look into the products you buy and the companies you work with, you already play a key role in the #BtheChange movement. Without you making conscious and informed decisions, none of this would be possible. Thank you.
To celebrate the launch of the first ever #BTheChange Day, Dogeared created a Limited Edition Online Exclusive Be The Change necklace, encouraging you and others you to make a statement & make a difference to be the change you wish to see in the world.
$5 from each purchase will support B-Lab, the non-profit dedicated to growing this global movement.

Dogeared loves being a B-Corp! We’re held accountable to being good corporate citizens and that means we get fun visits from our friends at B Lab to see how we’re holding up our end of the bargain. B Lab team members, Jessica and Victoria, stopped by our office last week to check things out. They got a first hand look at what we do for our teams, the planet and our communities. We passed! And Jessica and Victoria took advantage of making their own wish before leaving..a Dogeared tradition! Learn more about B Lab and B-Corps and what we’re all about at http://www.bcorporation.net
As a certified B-Corp, Dogeared is always keeping a pulse on really cool ways to serve our local communities and make a difference. We are believers of a healthy and sustainable future, not just for business, but for our planet. So it was no surprise when our co-founder and avid road cyclist, Merlin, jumped on the opportunity to support the Climate Ride. This 6-day, 327 mile journey is an amazing movement that encourages a healthy lifestyle and fitness while promoting a movement towards a more eco-friendly environment for the future. Now that is something we can get on board with!!
Each cyclist raises funds months prior to the event to help fund the organization’s movements towards sustainable and clean energy. Merlin ended up raising over $4,500 this year! Over $450,000 was raised for Climate Ride and its beneficiaries on this particular ride. Funds support sustainable endeavors that range from protected bike lanes to environmentally-friendly legislation, from saving our forests to furthering the cause of socially responsible business via B Lab and others.
Fellow members of the B Corporation Community participated as a team and successfully completed the West Coast ride and wrote about their experience here: ‘B The Change: The Blog’
