Green Llama's Leap into Empowerment: Celebrating Our WBENC Certification

Green Llama is thrilled to announce our recent achievement of becoming a WBENC-certified women-owned business! This landmark certification from the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainability, equality, and empowerment in the eco-friendly cleaning industry.

What is WBENC Certification?

WBENC certification is the gold standard for women-owned businesses in the United States, designed to validate that a business is at least 51 percent owned, controlled, operated, and managed by women. This prestigious certification not only serves as a beacon of trust and reliability for consumers but also opens a myriad of doors for women entrepreneurs in corporate and government supply chains .

Why WBENC Certification Matters for Green Llama

For Green Llama, attaining WBENC certification is more than just a badge of honor; it's a testament to our dedication to fostering an inclusive, sustainable business ecosystem. This certification aligns perfectly with our mission to provide non-toxic, innovative cleaning solutions while advocating for women's leadership and participation in the green economy.

The Benefits of WBENC Certification

Becoming a WBENC-certified business grants us access to a vast network of support, including targeted business opportunities with major U.S. corporations and federal, state, and local government entities. It enhances our visibility and opens up avenues for networking, mentorship, and growth through various WBENC programs, events, and resources .

Green Llama's Journey to Certification

Achieving WBENC certification was a thorough process that involved demonstrating our commitment to the WBENC standards of female ownership and management. We underwent a meticulous documentation review and a site visit to validate our business practices and ownership structure. This journey not only reinforced our operational integrity but also strengthened our resolve to support women in business.

The Impact on Our Community and Customers

Our WBENC certification is a promise to our customers and community that Green Llama is a brand you can trust for quality, sustainability, and ethical business practices. It empowers us to contribute more significantly to the movement for gender equality in business and to inspire other women entrepreneurs to pursue their visions with confidence.
