fort negrita celebrates 9 years

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.

    Thank you for teaching the ladies in Fayette and Grandbois how to use the reusable cloth pads
    Having the pads is helpful because sometimes It is financially dificult for them to buy the disposables
