With February just around the corner, we are looking forward to celebrating Black-Founded brands on BUBBLE for Black History Month! Black Founders should be supported throughout the year, however, Black History Month is a great opportunity to continue shining a light on the incredible Black Founders behind the delicious, clean-label goods found on the BUBBLE platform. BUBBLE proudly adheres to the 15% Pledge – a pledge promising to dedicate 15% of shelf space to Black-Founded brands. Currently, there are 18% BIPOC-Founded brands on BUBBLE, with 4.2% of brands being Black-Founded. BUBBLE looks forward to furthering this pledge and continuing to increase the community of diversely founded brands.
With wellness and inclusivity as one of the core values here at BUBBLE, we understand the importance of black brands in the wellness community.

AZZIZAH’S HERBAL GREEN POPCORN
In 2011, Founder Azzizah longed for a quick and easy snack that was delicious but also helped power her through her busy schedule. She quickly discovered that adding spirulina–a well known superfood, loaded with protein B vitamins and iron– to her air-popped popcorn, gave her the boost she needed! Her herbal green popcorn is spirulina-based, combined with herbs and spices to give it a kick of flavor. Add in some nutritional yeast for cheesy flavor, and you’ve got an afternoon snack that is fresh, nutritious and completely vegan!
