On the show, Megan, Jon and I discuss:

  • How b.good got started and how social good was mixed in right from the beginning.
  • How b.good is sharing its mission of health and sustainability with its customers.
  • How b.good invested in a farm off the coast of Boston to feed its mission and expand their work with at-risk youths.
  • What b.good has learned through the years about involving customers in their social good experiments. Mobile has played a key role!
  • How b.good balances talking about its food with sharing its philanthropic message when customers are in the restaurants.
  • The work of the b.good foundation and the challenge of making money and giving it away.
