Good For Michigan is proud to be the B Local for the state. B Locals are place-based communities of people using business as a force for good. At the core of every B Local are Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies that use the power of business to create a shared and durable prosperity for all. B Locals exist to create connections, increase the positive impact of their B Corp community, and raise awareness of the B Economy.
