Hispanic Heritage Month, or what we're terming Latinx Heritage Month is underway. The month pays tribute each year to the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latinx Americans—as well as a celebration of heritage rooted in all Latin American countries—from September 15 to October 15. One of the best ways you can support the community now and always is with the almighty dollar. From hair care to skin care to home decor, there are so many amazing Latinx-owned wellness brands to shop.
Unfortunately, since major retailers notoriously neglect brands owned by Black and brown people, it's not as easy to shop these brands as it could and should be. One group looking to fix this is We Are Women Owned, who is hosting a virtual pop-up, showcasing over 100 Latina-owned small businesses though October 15. Additionally, we've rounded up some of our favorite Latinx-owned wellness brands.
