Happy Black Pound Day people!
For those who don't know yet, Black Pound Day is a movement that empowers consumers to buy from black owned businesses.
This movement is important because some black-owned businesses often get overlooked or ignored in their industries.
Black Pound Day is a monthly positive reminder that there are some fabulous black-owned businesses out there whose owners are working really hard. Businesses who deserve some recognition and the opportunity to show how much quality they provide with their products and services.
So we uplift and promote these businesses on this day and everyday thereafter, to ecourage a healthy economy and to make sure that money is circulating more equally.
Personally, I have my eye on products from these businesses:
And I keep finding more that I'd like to buy from too! There's such a wealth of talent out there and I'm so pleased to be involved in helping to uplift my community.
Please consider supporting this positive movement yourself, in any way you can.
In the meantime, please share with me in the comments any black-owned businesses you have discovered and are considering buying from.
