1. You’ll save money.
2. You’ll reduce the amount of food additives you consume.
Buying bulk whole foods, and making meals from scratch is a far healthier way to shop. Much of what is found in those bulk bins only contains one ingredient.
3. You’ll reduce food packaging — and chemical exposure.
Buying in bulk uses less packaging. Some food packaging can release its chemical components into your food, too. If you’re putting bulk beans into your own reusable bag, you won’t have to worry about that.
4. Only Buy What You Need
Need just a handful of sunflower seeds for a recipe? Get exactly what you need without having the rest of it, that you may never use, take up room in your pantry.
