DiscoverBulk.com is teaching shoppers how to reduce their impact on the environment by making a simple switch to bulk foods products. The packaging methods used for bulk food products focus on using only enough materials to hold the amount of food necessary, which reduces excess boxes, bags, containers and other packaging waste. Some bulk foods are even packaged in sturdy, reusable containers that can be put to use time and time again.
Buying products at bulk food stores doesn’t mean purchasing items in large club-store quantities. Products in the bulk food aisle have been bought by the store in large quantities and are then broken down into convenient and easy to use sizes for the average consumer. This gives the consumer the ability to purchase only the amount of a product they need, which in turn reduces food waste, such as spoiled or outdated products that would end up in landfills.
Consumers have the ability to search over 4,300 bulk food items on DiscoverBulk.com, including
all-natural and organic items. These items are environmentally friendly because they are minimally processed, often without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals. Consumers can then locate a store in their area by doing a zip code search, which can provide them with a local store that can easily be accessed through alternative means of transportation such as walking or biking if desired.
DiscoverBulk.com is a recent recipient of a “Davey Award,” the largest and most prestigious award competition exclusively for the “David’s”
of creativity in the industry. Just as David defeated Goliath, with a big idea and a small rock, so do smaller companies produce big ideas on a smaller budget. DiscoverBulk.com received this award based on content, photography and design.
