🌶 The Farmers Market🌶 is one of my favorite places to be because the majority of the produce there are package free! Many people think it’s expensive to shop in bulk or package/plastic free, but in reality it saves you so much money and helps the environment! .
Next time you go into a grocery store and compare the prices of a bag of anything (rice, seasoning, fruits, veggies) with its bulk or package free counter part. The majority of the time it’s less to shop in bulk. .
Many find it expensive because as humans we over consume and buy more than we need, and then most of the food we buy goes to waste! Did you know over 40% of the food we produce in the US goes to waste! Sad with all the hunger we have in this world!
It’s something I had to learn really quick when switching over to a plantbased diet. I usually only buy for 2-3 days because fresh/organic produce only last for that long. With this style of shopping I shop 2-3x/week but only spend around $30-$40/week. AND most importantly, I don’t waste anything because I eat what I buy right away! Zero food waste, less plastic in landfills and oceans and Morse money in my pocket! WIN WIN WIN!
