As a B Corp-certified company, Captain Blankenship’s approach to transparency is comprehensive. Products are traceable through each production stage, and are manufactured in responsibly-operated US facilities which undergo regular third-party audits to ensure environmental compliance, fair and safe working conditions for workers.

Emissions

Captain Blankenship operates in alignment with the goals of the Paris Agreement and is proactively working to reduce its carbon footprint across sourcing and manufacturing by working with responsibly operated farms and co-ops to source its ingredients and manufacturing its products at facilities that are actively trying to lower their emissions.

Other initiatives that support the brand’s goal to lower its carbon emissions include having its fulfillment center and manufacturers in the same town, which removes the need to ship products long distances, operating in facilities that are 100% powered by wind, and working with a freight carrier that reduces emissions by batching shipment.
