At Hive, we strive to reflect the world as it is through our makers. We’re proud to partner with the Black-owned businesses we’ve highlighted this month, but we know there’s more to be done. Having a platform of any kind means we’re in a position to elevate voices and candidly discuss inequity.
We’ve hardly scratched the surface with discussing Black environmentalists and the deep racial inequities in the food world. We hope you’ll join us in continuing these important conversations. To take action or learn more about the topics we’ve discussed we’re directing you to a few resources and organizations that can help.
If you’d like to navigate your own way through taking actions Impact Tree has a well-rounded list of reading materials, quizzes, donation recommendations, and more.
And if you’re looking for more curated recommendations, our sustainability team has called special attention to these resources for taking action in the food and farming space specifically:
Supporting Black-owned businesses goes well beyond a mention during February. So we encourage you to shop Black-owned all year long whether it’s with us or with another business. And as part of our commitment to continuous improvement, we’re always looking for more brand partners. So if you own or know a Black-owned business you love, send them our way at firstname.lastname@example.org
