Earn Cashback this Christmas Supporting Black Creators on Etsy

Christmas is a time of joy, celebration, and giving. But it can also be a time of stress, pressure, and overspending. According to a recent survey, Brits are expected to spend an average of £602 each on Christmas gifts in 2023, an increase of 40% from an average spend of £429 in 2022. While this may seem like good news for the economy, it also raises some questions about the impact of our spending habits on the environment, society, and ourselves.

One way to make your Christmas shopping more meaningful and sustainable is to support Black-owned businesses. Black entrepreneurs make up a crucial part of our small business economy, contributing at least £74 billion a year to the UK. However, they also face significant challenges and barriers, such as discrimination, lack of access to finance, and limited networks. By buying from Black-owned businesses, you are not only getting quality products and services, but also helping to create a more diverse and inclusive economy.

Cashblack is a platform that rewards members with cashback when they shop online with Black-owned businesses. Cashblack partners with hundreds of Black-owned retailers across various categories, such as fashion, beauty, health, food, and more. You can browse and discover new and exciting brands, or search for your favourite ones, and earn cashback on every purchase. Cashblack also supports Black charities and causes, donating a percentage of its revenue to organisations that empower and uplift the Black community.
