I have been researching and compiling a list of Black-owned businesses that are environmentally friendly.
Disclaimer: I will be adding to this list over time. This list is not done. So, please let me know of any businesses to add (via here, Instagram, or my email). The items on this list aren’t necessarily “zero waste” or plastic-free, but are in the green space.
