One great and relatively painless way to help the environment is buying bulk foods. Nowadays there are plenty of great bulk options from shopping at warehouse clubs or choosing to buy things like nuts, rice, and oatmeal from the bulk bins found in many local supermarkets.
How Buying Bulk Helps The Earth :
· 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. That¹s the equivalent weight of 522.5 elephants. (Crazy, right?!)
· Purchasing oatmeal from the bulk bins saves 5 times the waste of its packaged equivalent.
