You may have noticed by now, but I am a Canadian. I absolutely adore living in beautiful BC and as much as I enjoy visiting and networking with my neighbours down south in the US of A, I cannot imagine living any where else on earth. Recently, however, I was introduced to Thrive Market and the fact that they don’t [yet] operate in Canada makes me cry a little bit every time I think about it.
This incredible source of healthy, natural, wholesome and organic products is the best way I have ever found to shop at the highest end of quality on a wholesale price budget. Their prices are literally half that of average retailers. It pains me that I can’t buy absolutely everything from them, but I can share their goodness with you, my lovely readers.
Let me tell you a little bit more about Thrive Market, please.
Choose Your Values
When you sign and and start shopping, you can sort through the catalog based on your food values. Whether you are Vegan, like me, or Vegetarian, or Paleo, or Gluten-Free or simply just focused on getting everything organic, you can sort accordingly to have all your many, many options generated for a super simple shopping experience. Within those many, many options that you will see will be included all of my personal favourite brands, and so many more. And it’s not just food – all the best natural skin and hair care products are there right alongside natural cleaning products! The market is online, and they offer free delivery on orders over $49, so you don’t even have to waste gas and time going to the grocery store. I’m so jealous; not joking.
Be Socially Conscious
Thrive Market makes my heart pitter-patter when I think of all the wonderful goodness they are doing. While they are busy providing you with healthy organic products, they are increasing the consumption of sustainable products throughout the USA, thereby reducing the amount of not so environmental comparative products. According to their media kit, it goes further than that!
Thrive Market is an environmentally responsible and sustainable business. All packaging, boxes and inserts are made from recycled paper and are recyclable. Thrive Market is committed to supporting other sustainable businesses by working with eco-friendly vendors and suppliers who share our values. Thrive Market is 100% carbon neutral through carbonfund.org. This certification covers national shipping, packaging materials, warehouse utilities and the commutes of Thrive employees.
They also give back to the community. I really love this part. For every paid membership they sell, that give a free membership for a low-income American family. Thousands of Americans who are forced to survive on a diet of lower-priced, highly processed and artificial alternatives that are found at traditional supermarkets, can now thrive on a diet thanks to their easy access to healthy and natural products. Isn’t that lovely!?
Save Your Dollars
I know you have been waiting to hear about how this is going to cut your grocery bill in half, and that’s why I save the money talk for last. Here’s the deal: you get instant access to all their wholesome goodness prices at 25% – 50% lower than traditional retailers just be signing up for their membership program. For an annual fee of only $59.95 you can start saving up to half of the cost of all your groceries all year long. Seriously. I’ve looked. It’s amazing. Let me say that again:
For less than $5 a month ($59.95 annually), members can shop 4,000 of the highest quality food, supplements, home, personal care, and beauty products from more than 400 of the best brands on the market, all delivered straight to their doors at 25-50% below retail prices.
I can’t even explain to you how quickly I would sign myself up and every single friend and family member I have if it was possible up here in Canada. But I can’t, so I truly hope you will! If you do, please let me a message in the comments below about all the amazing savings you are enjoying!
