Green tips for your home: buy food in bulk

Buying Food in Bulk

You can implement many strategies to ensure your home is greener, environmentally friendly and less toxic, both for you and for the earth. This post will talk about the benefits of buying food in bulk.

Consider joining a food co-op, which is a volunteer-based, not-for-profit food provider. Most foods in co-ops are generally organic, are quite well priced and because they are organic, are much better for you and for the planet as they use a lot less energy to be produced and have less of a load on the planet, due to the sustainable farming practices used to grow organic food.

If you buy your food in bulk, you will achieve two objectives:
  • you will get the food cheaper than if you bought it in small lots and
  • you will use less packaging, which decreases your load on the planet. Bulk food buying is much more environmentally friendly as less packaging is involved and less energy is used to produce the food and packaging.
As you can see, there are so many ways to save the planet, which use up less energy, produce less pollution, save you more money and help your physical fitness. It's a win-win situation. So what are you waiting for?
