DC-based online plant shop, Grounded, hosted their first Earth Week to celebrate the business' successful two year anniversary.

Last week, we kicked off the Quarantine Awards with celebrities and influencers who won this inevitable lockdown. Aside from those who made a huge impact in quarantine, there are a number of businesses that racked in the money catering to the needs of its consumers.

Songstress Ari Lennox has been working to spotlight black owned businesses with her new Youtube series with co-host Shaughn Cooper. They have interviewed and released episodes highlighting a few businesses from her hometown Washington, DC from a local ice cream shop to a wildly new and successful online plant shop. Most recently, Lennox took her series beyond Youtube to partner with Google and US Black Chambers, Inc. to create a jingle for the black and woman owned plant shop, Grounded for Black owned Friday.
