Black Businesses to support this season

I wrote this on Buy Black Friday but why restrict oneself to one day, we have a season ahead and it’s great to support Black-owned cruelty-free vegan or vegan-friendly businesses any day. Many of us shop online from the US.
Shipping is only horrendously high from big white-owned businesses and for the kind without tracking but my stuff got here so far with the cheap shipping (it’s actually airmail) and it was fast enough.

Repost from Natalie Cartledge on facebook:

As a black vegan,I always try my best to support our people’s businesses,especially when it comes to beauty products. I thought that the most difficult thing was to find black owned items that were also cruelty-free. I was very lucky to find a few businesses that are both black owned and cruelty-free.
Nubian Heritage
Afrikan Republic
Alaffia
Shea Moisture
If you know of more black owned businesses that are also cruelty free, please let me know

Ginger+Liz and TheLipBar are vegan-friendly. Or look out for books, art, accessories or fashion. There’s a free ebook thrown in the previous link πŸ™‚ See a long list of merchants below.

On Ferguson, I’m hoping blog readers would look at the tweets and likes. There are so many good articles by Black voices, which are the ones that matter now. I’m under the weather and my voice hardly matters anyway.
