Leader in shoe and garment care makes sustainable, ethical practices transparent, accountable

LOS ANGELES , Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Jason Markk , the pioneering footwear, apparel and accessories care brand, has obtained B Corp Certification , joining the ranks of more than 8,000 purpose-driven companies in 95 countries who commit to using their businesses to positively impact all stakeholders and the environment.

Jason Markk 's B Corp Scorecard is published on bcorporation.net . Part of the company's roadmap for operating with purpose in 2024 includes the removal of all VOC, PFAS, PFOA and PFCs (forever chemicals) from all of its formulas. Additionally, the brand will certify 90% of formulas as biodegradable, USDA Bio-based or EPA Safer Choice by the end of this year.

To become B Corp certified, companies must attain a minimum score of 80 on the B Impact Assessment — a rigorous evaluation by the non-profit B Lab to verify the organization's positive impact on its workers, customers, community, and the environment. The median score for the average business is 50.9.  B Corps enshrine their commitment to positive impact goals into their legal charter and must re-certify every three years. Every certified company's scorecard is published on the B Corp website.

"Since our inception in 2007, we have fostered a culture of care through our products and services," states Jason Markk Founder and Chief Mission Officer, Jason Angsuvarn . "Taking care of our belongings extends their life, reducing consumption and waste. Beyond that, caring for oneself, possessions, and the planet promotes balance, purpose and sustainability—caring is a virtuous circle."

Jason Markk's B Corp Certification creates business transparency and legal accountability, assuring the brand's distributors and customers it is living up to the highest social and environmental standards. It also provides the framework for continuous improvement.

"Everyone at Jason Markk is amped about achieving B Corp Certification," states Angsuvarn . "It took a lot of hard work. At the same time, being able to trumpet B Corp status isn't the end game; it's just the start of achieving more . I see the 'B Corp stamp' as a public declaration of our ongoing commitment to be the best company we can be when it comes to our products, people and the planet."
