I've heard MPOWERD is a Certified B Corporation. What is that?
To borrow from the B Corp website, we're what Fair Trade is to Coffee, or what USDA Organic is to Milk. In other words, Certified B Corps were born out of the idea that in the modern age, companies should care just as much about helping others as they do helping themselves.
To prove we mean it, we're audited by the third-party B Lab, in which we have to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. How are we doing? See for yourself.
We're also legally registered as a benefit corporation, and our latest benefit report is available here.
How do you make a difference?
Since MPOWERD began in 2012, we've been focused on providing a real, immediate solution for the 1.5 billion people still living without access to electricity. We built a sustainable business model that allows us to provide lights to everyone, no matter where they live or how much they make, at a price they can actually afford. Simply put, we use high volume retail sales to lower costs, and pass those savings on. So the more we sell at home, the more we're able to give to those in need. To learn more, check out our story.
How can I get involved?
If you've bought from us before, you already are. Profits from every light sold go towards getting more lights to those that need them most.
Want to take it a step further? Our Give Luci program lets you purchase lights sent directly to someone living in energy poverty through one of our NGO partners. Learn more about Give Luci.
