Did you celebrate Earth Day? You still have time. Even if you miss today, you can show you love for the planet…and Black business. Here are 5 ways to ?? ?celebrate:⠀
1-Support An Environmental Justice Non-Profit – We Act for Environmental Justice is my favorite. (We Act) @weact4ej expands political participation among communities of color and low income residents in order to impact environmental planning and decision making. ⠀
2-Use a reusable razor. OUI the People – @ouithepeople will have you waiting for this reusable razor that saves the environment and reduces razor bumps. Single use shaving items contribute to thousands and thousands of pounds of waste in landfills each year. OUI the People’s beautiful and functional toolkit helps cut down on plastic waste while feeling great.⠀
3-Clean with biodegradable plant-based household cleaners – Pur Home – @purhomeclean makes non-toxic household cleaning products. PUR Home started from a desire to use truly green household cleaners. PUR Home is committed to creating simple and sustainable products.⠀
4-Buy and grow a plant. Eco Vibe – @ecovibestyle is so much more than plants. ECO: Focused on the environment and sustainable, ethical practices. VIBE: The feeling, the style, the look, the energy, and the experience. They also give back 1% of sales to local environmental causes. ⠀
5-By ethical fashion on a mission – Grant Blvd @grantblvd is a Black owned ethical fashion brand on a mission to create living wage employment opportunities for ALL marginalized folks, particularly those who have formerly been incarcerated.
