For the Bark House family, being a regenerative company is about honoring authenticity and celebrating it with others. This is an essential engagement involving people, planet and prosperity. We are about reconnecting people to the natural environment and building whole communities. Our manufacturing processes and products improve water quality, hold free carbon in the built environment and build clean soil as opposed to landfill waste. We are creating a stronger local economy with right fit jobs that people have pride and true ownership in. Bark House exclusive product and process inputs have been verified through third parties as reflected in B Corp and the world’s first and only Cradle to Cradle PLATINUM Certifications; Architectural Record Product of the Year and Best for the World Awards. This Regenerative Business Award pulls it all together to truly express the outcomes of what it can mean for a business to take a stand for what people say matters to them – living a life of authenticity. The Regenerative Summit Founder, Carol Sanford, shared that if she was in a space with Bark House bark wall coverings, she would know that she had found a place where we belong.
