B Corps are businesses committed to using their profit for good — these 14 are making some truly great products
NYC-based MPOWERD makes affordable, innovative products that help make clean energy accessible. Its best-known product is the Luci, an inflatable solar light. Particularly well-loved for their versatile applications for campers and hikers, MPOWERD is an increasingly recognizable name in the outdoors genre.
MPOWERD uses its lucrative sales in the developed world markets to power a tangible impact in the developing world— namely, the three billion people who live without access to electricity.
Its big sales drive down costs, and those savings are passed on to MPOWERD's clients in developing economies: "This allows anyone, no matter their circumstances, to own (or sell) our lights at prices they can actually afford."
Through this process and a myriad of others, the company delivers affordable, life-changing solar lights to off-the-grid communities around the world. It has strategic NGO partnerships in over 30 countries, emergency relief sales, and a customer-driven Give Luci program that encourages shoppers to purchase units for their global nonprofit partners.
