Subscribe To Blk Box And Receive Monthly Deliveries Of Black-Owned Products
Looking for a way to support black-owned businesses during this turbulent time? Meet brother and sister duo, Seth Ellis and Simone Ellis, co-founders of the first-ever subscription box service promoting black-owned businesses. Based in Houston, Texas, the family business is building steam and making a name for themselves across the country.
Blk Box, whose motto is “our community, our culture, our brands,” was created to provide economic empowerment to the Black community. Every month, Seth and Simone pick high-quality products from black-owned businesses that arrive at your doorstep. Products can range from apparel and accessories, to food-related favorites like pancake and waffle mix.
Some of the featured products that make their way into the monthly boxes include The Black Coffee Company, Vicky Cakes, AudreyJames Co., and KYVAN® Foods. You can learn more about these brands on the Blk Box website, including links to purchase directly from the retailer if you love their product.
“Every time you open the box, we want you to feel like you’re getting a brand new gift,” says Simone Ellis.
If you are ready to sign up, the Blk Box is available for either month to month, three-month, or six-month subscriptions ranging in price from $35 to $208. Products are automatically delivered on your schedule. With no obligation, you can modify or cancel your subscription anytime.
“I want to find a way to keep the dollar circulating within the Black community for a longer period of time,” says Seth Ellis. “When that happens, there is a lot of growth in the community, and there is a lot of positive transformation. It’s a labor of love.”
