As a way to continue to support the Black community, we’re introducing a new series where we’ll be highlighting Black-owned businesses: their stories, products, and services. Up first is BLK + GRN, an all-natural marketplace by Black artisans that aligns with our ethos here at Poosh.
Founded by Dr. Kristian Edwards, BLK + GRN, “connects Black people with natural lifestyles to high-quality, toxic-free brands that share in our mission of health, wellness, and community cultivation.” Henderson used her background as a public health professor and her lifestyle expertise to launch the site and she became an e-com entrepreneur in 2017.
The e-commerce site now features more than 70 Black artisans from around the world, with products ranging from beauty and wellness to home goods and gift ideas. Support small businesses, create change, and buy cleaner and healthier alternatives to everyday personal and household items with our top picks below.
