Our friends at Frontier Co-op offer this tip: Because you can get just the amount of the exotic spice or grain you need for that magazine recipe or to experiment with small quantities of spices you haven’t tried before, bulk offers an exciting way to expand your food horizons and keep your spice pantry clean and neat.

As more of us shop for green products and make wiser energy choices, buying in bulk is becoming a popular option. Bulk products reduce the amount of waste going into landfills and take less energy and other resources to produce while offering shoppers lower prices.

Since Americans generate about 😯 million tons of waste from packaging every year which is almost a third of the country’s waste, it makes sense to buy in bulk and reuse storage containers. It contributes positively to our planet’s health; and by not paying for all that individual packaging, labeling and advertising, you get more product for your money.

Buying in bulk also lets you save by purchasing just the amount you need, no more, no less. Plus bulk spices are much less expensive per ounce than their prepackaged versions, and you can buy just a small quantity for a test run.

Another advantage of bulk is that you can assess for yourself the color, aroma and texture of the products you’re buying.

We have a wide selection of bulk products from basic food items like beans, grains, flours and tea to cooking staples like herbs and spices as well as body care products.

The best part: you’re helping minimize the impact of your purchases on the growing problems of waste and global warming while getting more for your money. The popularity of bulk buying isn’t just a trend, it’s a smart shopping choice.
