Why B Corp is Important to Us
Bodhi was the fifth company and the first tourism business to be B Corp certified in Costa Rica. Even more exciting, we were the very first surf and yoga camp in the world to earn this distinction. We feel that it definitively puts this amazing life project and experiment, Bodhi Surf + Yoga camp, into the ranks of the many companies we admire - those that use their business as a force for good and create benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
It's important to note that companies choose to become B Corps of their own accord, and do so for a multitude of reasons: to start a movement in their communities or industries, to differentiate themselves from competitors, or simply because it makes better business sense. For us at Bodhi Surf + Yoga, becoming a B Corp seemed like the logical next step in solidifying the values and actions of corporate responsibility that have existed as long as our company itself. We also believed that the B Corp certification, through B Lab's triannual review process, would help us to continue developing and improving our business by providing accountability and validating the steps we've already taken.
How Does this Benefit Bodhi Guests?
When you choose to vacation at Bodhi Surf + Yoga camp, you are, in essence, putting your money towards sustainable tourism and responsible business practices. By supporting a B Corporation, you can be confident that you are contributing to the efforts of a company that supports its community, treats its workers fairly, and cares for its home environment. You are also rejecting the traditional business model that values profits above all else and fails to consider the entire impact of its operations. Your patronage makes you part of a movement that aims to shake up the existing system and create a market where companies compete to be not best in the world, but best for the world!
