Time to Bulk Up

It’s time to BULK up! Heading to the grocery often means coming home with lots of unneeded packaging. The average American produces 4.4lbs of household trash every day, most of that from single use wrapping. Buying in bulk can shrink that to a more sustainable number.

So, bring your reusable bags and find a bulk grocery store with this app for all your grains, nuts, beans, etc.  Not only will it reduce your packaging garbage but it will eliminate food waste ‘cause you buy the exact quantity you need.  You’ll save money and now have the freedom to create your own custom trail mix!

Now ready to take it to the next level?  Try out the new “refill” stores specializing in bulk cleaning and bath supplies.  If there is not one near you, you can organize a bulk buy with a group of friends, neighbors or coworkers and order bulk goods online. Then host a party to divvy up the 50lb bag of jasmine rice and 1000-load laundry detergent.  Who said zero waste wasn’t fun!?
