Earth Month is just around the corner and I have a great way for you to make a small change. Go Bulk at your favorite Health Food Grocery Stores!
I love the Bulk aisle at Whole Foods. I walk up and down admiring all the fabulous healthy options and think to myself, now this is a great idea. Flour, rice, dried fruits, nuts, even chocolates and snack food. Not only is it cheaper this way, but more eco-friendly without all the packaging.
To help celebrate Earth Month, The Bulk is Green Council (BIG) is challenging consumers to take the pledge to Love Bulk Foods for a chance to win a variety of products to help fill your natural and organic pantry.
Pledging is easy. Sign this digital pledge at LoveBulkFoods.com and once a week during Earth Month a winner will be drawn. Do you want to see what you’ll win?

I love the idea of storing your bulk in glass jars. I recently started doing this with my organic cane sugar and plan on adding more as you can see. The trail mix and granola jars I leave out on my countertop because it is easy to grab when the kids and I need a quick fix which is often! My goal is to start buying more spices in bulk once I buy some smaller jars…I think that would be a great addition to my pantry!
Some facts for you:
- If Americans purchased all of their coffee from the bulk bins for 1 month (Earth Month), 20,000,000 pounds of foil packaging would be saved from landfills. That’s the equivalent weight of 7,667 compact cars.
- If the average American family bought peanut butter in bulk for 1 month, 122 pound of waste per family would be saved from entering landfills
- If Americans purchased all of their almonds in bulk for 1 month, 6,000,000 pounds of waste would be saved from landfills. That’s the equivalent weight of 522.5 elephants.
- Purchasing oatmeal from the bulk bins saves 5x the waste of its packaged equivalent
