Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 – October 15, is a time to honor and recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans. It’s the perfect time to seek out new art, literature, and food from a variety of Latinx cultures, to focus on putting money and effort into initiatives that support the diaspora, and to support Latinx-owned brands and businesses. With products like educational kids magazines that put a fun spin on multi-cultural learning to durable aprons and hydrating skincare, you’ll want to support these Latinx-owned brands all year long, not just during Hispanic Heritage Month.
