Supporting and uplifting Black-women creators and makers is at the forefront of our mission. Last month, we kicked off Black History month with our launch event at WeWork White House in DC, was the culmination of all the research, pitching, and networking done behind the scenes in order to bring the platform to life.

Join us on this visual journey through our inaugural launch event and meet the artisans, vendors, and supporters who make up the BLK + GRN community.

BLK + GRN: natural products by Black artisans

We’re so grateful to everyone who attended our first event and made it an incredible experience from start to finish. Without the support of the community, our platform wouldn’t be able to exist -- thank you!

If you missed this event, we not only have more on the way, but we have many ways you can get involved:

  • We will be a featured vendor at the Black Love Experience on Saturday, March 17 2018 at the Anacostia Arts Center. The first 10 people to register with our discount code: GRNBLE2018 will get $10 off.
  • BLK + GRN will be featured on a LIVE segment of Good Morning Washington on Wednesday, March 7 at 8:45 a.m. Tune in  ABC7 or NewsChannel 8 to catch us!
  • Follow us on FacebookIG, and Twitter
  • We’re hiring! We are looking for a fly wellness-minded woman who loves products, loves people, and is on her own wellness journey. If this sounds like you, send a statement of interest to

From finally putting faces with the names of the artisans whose products we carry and meeting supporters from social media in person, to feeling the #BlackGirlMagic permeate throughout the space, the launch event was not only a success -- it was a dream realized!

If you want to support Black-women brands and love BLK + GRN’s mission, switch out the products you purchase for yourself and your home on a weekly or monthly basis with products from our artisans. They are not only created by Black artisans, they are also high quality, eco-friendly, and all-natural products. Any order over $50 receives free shipping, every day!
