NEW YORK, Mar. 27 /CSRwire/ - DailyFeats, which helps people reach their goals through small, positive steps, is proud to announce that it is now a Certified B Corporation. B Corporations are a new kind of company which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.  Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment. There are currently over 515 Certified B Corporations from sixty industries, representing a diverse multi-billion dollar marketplace. In the long term, B Corporation status will lead to a legally recognized new corporate form with tax incentives, procurement preferences, and a social stock exchange for sustainable businesses. 

DailyFeats believes that together, we can create the change our society needs—to protect our health, our wealth, our emotional well-being, and the strength of our families and communities—by starting from the smallest actions and working upwards.

DailyFeats helps people reach their goals through small, positive steps. Available free at dailyfeats.com for web and iPhone, DailyFeats celebrates small but significant actions, or "feats," that contribute to people's goals for health and well-being. DailyFeats members earn points for those actions, share them with friends, and redeem their points for rewards or donations. DailyFeats' purpose is to make positive action part of daily life, motivating people to realize the potential of every day.

How does it work? When you come to DailyFeats and set a meaningful, positive goal—like losing weight, being a better parent, or giving back to your community—we'll help you break your goal down into a set of manageable "feats" to do every day. As you check in your feats, you'll share your progress with friends, exchanging ideas and building inspiration—and you'll earn points to redeem for savings from national brands, or partner donations to nonprofits.

"We are thrilled to have DailyFeats on board as a B Corp," said Jay Coen Gilbert, B Lab Co-Founder. "DailyFeats’ work helps people meet their wellness goals and create social good, which brings a strong new voice to our community."

"DailyFeats is excited to be a Certified B Corp, to join the growing movement of businesses like ours which operate to make profit, and to make a positive impact for stakeholders and the world." said Veer Gidwaney, DailyFeats CEO and Co-Founder.
