Smart Set is a B Corp

Smart Set is pleased to announce our certification as a B Corp, signifying our commitment to making the world a better place. B-Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Think of Fair Trade certification for coffee.

Smart Set, Inc. joins only six other Minnesota companies to acquire this certification, and the only printer on the list.

What makes us different?

Eighty percent of all paper used in our printing is done with 100% post consumer recycled or FSC certified. Smart Set is the largest local purchaser of 100% pcw recycled paper in the Twin Cities, an option provided to our customers for no additional cost, so you don’t have to decide between helping the planet or helping your bottom line.

Service to non-profits

Thirty percent of our business comes from non-profits, other B-Corps, or for-profit social change organizations. Smart Set has been involved for many years with companies and organizations bringing positive change to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, probably one of the economically challenged communities in the United States. Clients include Native American Natural Foods (a fellow B Corp), Thunder Valley Community Development Corporation, Lakota Language Immersion Childcare, Oglala Lakota College, Tanka Fund, and others. They also work with many local environmental and social change groups.
