During Black History Month, you can celebrate by supporting Black-owned businesses.
You might already have your own list of Black-owned businesses where you like to shop. If you don’t, we at Stash have asked our coworkers to compile a list of Black-owned businesses they love, and where you can shop this month. These companies are uplifting their communities by providing their expertise to make a difference:
Naturallee Natural by Lisa Bailey
Lisa Bailey is a highly sought-after editorial hair stylist in the beauty industry, specializing in natural hair care. If you’re not in the NYC area to experience her famous techniques in person, you can still benefit from her expertise.

Rugerks: Organic at its Best
Nadine and Kevin McLean
A love of cooking and healthy eating inspired the McLeans to start Rugerks Organic. The duo grows organic crops in their own backyard—and bring that passion for fresh produce to an online marketplace. Their goal? Providing more people with easier access to organic teas, herbs, spices, and more.

Posh Candle Co.
Posh Candle Co. is a one-woman show. Watts, who makes all her candles from 100% soy from American soy farms, also uses phthalate-free fragrances and colorful decorative phrases. Her hope is to inspire women to be their authentic selves and encourage a positive mindset. Watts also works to support projects from organizations and entrepreneurs that share the same passions.
