We are all looking for ways to save money when shopping. Why does buying in bulk matter beyond cost-savings? Most of the products we buy are packaged and that packaging costs money and natural resources to make. Plus, it’s often immediately thrown away, creating waste for landfills. If you buy in bulk, you often reduce some of the packaging, which has a positive impact on the environment.
You can save on packaging and money choosing to purchase the larger container of shampoo, soap or other personal care items.
“Buying in bulk may also end up saving you time and gas as you make less shopping trips. But be sure to never buy in bulk items that you don’t use often. If the product expires before you can use it, you haven’t saved money or prevented waste.” Carla Davis - 5 Things To Buy In Bulk to Save Money + Reduce Waste (Systainability).
