In this episode I speak with accidental entrepreneur (her words) Stacia Jensen, who has started a sustainability revolution in the kitchen thanks to her beeswax wraps.
Stacia shares the origin story of how LilyBee Wrap got started in Hawke's Bay and the passionate community she has built around her products.
We also talk about what it means to becoming a B Corporation, a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. These businesses are required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community and of course the environment.
While for many businesses these requirements may seem onerous, Stacia sees it as both the right thing to do, being part of a movement of people using business as a force for good.
Something we can all consider. Let's take a listen.
