Black veganism is on fire! More than ever, you can find products from Black-owned businesses that specialize in vegan food, makeup, haircare and more.
Even if you are an occasional vegan, many of the vegan goods by Black companies are better than their conventional counterparts - and the best part is they are cleaner and healthier. Just by searching Black veganism on the internet, you will find blogs, podcasts and websites with a variety of information from eating a low-cost vegan diet to starter shopping guides.
