Here Are Three Great Reasons To Buy In Bulk:
To save on money, time & carbon emissions
Most products when bought in bulk are generally cheaper. Buying in bulk reduces the hassle and expense of constant trips to the supermarket, which not only can save you time, it can potentially save you more money, reduce your fossil fuel and energy consumption, which consequently reduce carbon Emissions.
To prevent exposure to harmful chemicals
As the population continues to grow, there is an increasing demand for more food, and thus an increase in the amount of waste and garbage production and thus the number of landfills. The more consumers buy in bulk, the fewer garbage trailer trips to the landfill per year which not only saves space in landfills, but also reduces the need to build more landfills. According to Arjo Wiggins“Landfill releases methane gas, which is 23 times higher and more harmful to the environment than CO2.” Buying in bulk helps to prevent this.
To improve overall health
Plastics are one of the most widely used material in food packaging. In recent years, there has been a rise in health concerns regarding potentially harmful components such as bisphenol A (BPA), phthalate, PVC, or polycarbonate found in plastics. According to Bearst Cancer UK“the chemical bisphenol A (BPA), used in polycarbonate bottles and food containers is a hormone disrupting chemical. Recent research suggests that despite being marketed as ‘BPA free’, commercially available plastic products leach oestrogenic chemicals when exposed to every day use.” According to the NHS “BPA may mimic hormones and interfere with the endocrine system of glands, which release hormones around the body. Some scientists think that if it interferes with sex hormones, this could affect puberty or the menopause or cause cancers that are related to hormones.”
According to the Plastic Oceans Foundation “We are now producing nearly 300 million tons of plastic every year, half of which is for single use. Plastic pollution is not only impacting our waters and marine life, but also the human food chain and our overall health. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year. Once in the ocean and broken up into tiny pieces, plastic attracts toxic chemicals released over decades from industry and agriculture, the concentration of which increases as they move up the food chain. Exposures to these chemicals have been suggested to contribute to some cancers, and infertility, as well as immune, metabolic, cognitive and behavioural disorders. The entry of plastic pieces into our food chain is of concern to human health.” Buying in bulk helps to prevent & reverse environmental damage and thus improve overall health.
