There’s a lot to consider when it’s time to upgrade your home decor. Quality, affordability, and sustainability are some of the heavy hitters. But it’s also important to think about whom you’re supporting. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and many of these businesses are owned by underrepresented groups. When you support them, you help close the racial wealth gap, strengthen local economies, and foster job creation. The arrival of Black History Month offers a great opportunity to do some shopping with a few creative Black-owned businesses while freshening up your home at the same time.
