This EARTH Month, Fort Negrita celebrates 9 years of earth advocacy.
The Fort was started initially as way to bring awareness to our community about an alternative to the crusty-wasteful-capitalistic-status quo, and the purpose is still the same TIL THIS DAY!
In 2013, we talked basic eco-friendly talk, then we punted to a disciplined zero waste lifestyle, and now we are a budding cooperative business.
Go back in time with us and take a look at our growth (and Ree’s hair changes 💇🏾) over the years.
