[NEWS] BUSINESS FOR GOOD: TRIPLE BOTTOM BREWING

 

From The Philadelphia Citizen

When Triple Bottom Brewing opens in the old Reading Railroad offices at 915 Spring Garden, it will hold more than just beer fermentation tanks—there will also be a washing machine.

You’ll have to find somewhere else to do your laundry on days you stop by for a beer, though; the washing machine, along with a dryer and a shower, will be in the staff room, an effort to support employees who may not have that luxury at home. It’s just one of the many ways the fledgling beer company is living up to its name.

The “Triple Bottom” indicates that Tess Hart and Bill Popwell put themselves squarely in the triple bottom line movement for their business—putting people, planet, and profit on an equal footing. “We want to figure out how a business can be profitable, but also be good,” says Hart. And what better way to do that, than with something they love: Beer.
