Purposeful Palm series: Buy good

Purposeful Palm series: Buy good

As you might remember, last week’s tip for a meaningful workweek from the Purposeful Palm was to forgo meat. My favorite reader response was from Ernesto: “No way, Bea. I love parrilla [bar-b-q]! Try to get your little plant to give me some other advice.” After the Palm stopped chuckling, it agreed to stay away from suggesting a culinary sacrifice this week. Thus, the above tip on something close to the opposite: Shopping!

Here are resources to help you find black-owned businesses:
The Buy From A Black Woman Directory
New York Magazine’s 180 Black-Owned Businesses to Support
The Black-Owned Market
Etsy’s Black Owned Shops 
Black Enterprise’s Top 100 list 
Bank Black
Bon Appetit’s list of Black-owned Restaurants 
A list of 181 Black-owned businesses across the United States in many different categories

If you live outside of the United States and this tip doesn’t apply, consider purchasing from a group that is economically excluded where you live.

Enjoy your purchases and your helper’s high!
