BULK! Itâ€™s so important that Iâ€™m writing my entire second blog post about it. Even if everything you need isnâ€™t available in bulk where you live, chances are this is where you can find a lot of things you do need or want.
When it comes to shopping sustainably, bulk is the ultimate lifesaver. While items bought in bulk likely still came in disposable packaging, the customerâ€™s choice to buy in bulk as opposed to individually wrapped products reduces the amount of packaging used. The truth is, unless youâ€™re growing all of your own food, itâ€™s practically impossible to buy food without someone producing some type of trash along the way. But it doesnâ€™t have to be this way, and by refusing this unnecessary packaging in everyday shopping, a consumer is voting for change.
