Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

At nutriburst it is our mission to educate, support and inspire our customers.  After the devastating death of George Floyd, we felt that it was necessary to curate a list of ways that we and our community can help.   We live in a world where the concentration of melanin in our skin can determine our rights, our opportunities and our lives.  Shying away from this fact doesn’t and will not pave a way for change. The success of equality will demand years of work, this isn’t a moment but rather a movement, and will require people from all corners of the globe in all aspects of society.  Together we can tackle this devastating injustice.  We believe that education is a great route to racial equality, so read below for some suggestions on what our team are currently interested in.
