5 Black Women Owned Ethical Businesses We Love

The Root Collective was founded on the principle that people matter. The way we spend our money affirms that principle, and in light of many of us working to become anti-racist allies, we want to share several Black women owned ethical and sustainable businesses. 

As you browse, be sure to read the stories behind these impactful brands, and give them a follow on social media! 

  1. Batiqua - Fair trade Batik textiles curated by Zimbabwean-born entrepreneur Linda. 
  2. Omi Woods - Jewelry that is ethically handmade with fair-trade African gold and globally sourced conflict-free fine metals.
  3. Mented - After realizing it was hard to find a perfect nude lipstick, friends KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson created a makeup brand to suit women of all skin tones.
  4. Two Days Off - A sustainable line of thoughtful pieces created by Gina Stovall and produced in limited edition batches in Los Angeles.
  5. BLK + GRN - A marketplace that connects Black people with natural lifestyles to high-quality, toxic-free brands.

Happy shopping!
