Health Food That Doesn’t Break The Bank.
I am obsessed with Thrive Market. Their selection of Organic, Non-GMO groceries that are made with REAL ingredients is bar non, and cost significantly less than the same exact items do in stores in my town.
Thrive makes shopping for the best of the best easy. You can filter by diet (vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten free, FODMAP, Whole30, etc.) along with normal aisle sorting (baked good, meant & seafood, wine, pantry staples, beauty supplies, cleaning, etc.).
But more than anything else, Thrive does the work for me.
The Thrive Market standard is simple: The best quality products. Always.
Their impact starts with the products they choose to carry, rejecting products from companies with an old, out of date line of thinking and instead selecting to work with and feature products from companies who align with their vision of a healthier and more sustainable planet. I love how Thrive only works with the best of the best. I can trust that the products they offer are from companies who are truly doing things differently. Most are Organic, all are Non-GMO, there is an overall tendency to avoid plastic and find more responsible packaging materials.
Thrive also has a list of over 500 ingredients that are absolutely never found in any products in their store, including any artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, bleached flour, BHA and SO much more! They also set incredibly high standards for controversial ingredients like Palm Oil and Canola Oil.
“It’s been our promise since day one: For every paid membership, we donate a free membership to someone in need.” This is one of the truths I love most about Thrive. If you’re a student, teacher, veteran, first responder, or family in need, you qualify for a free Thrive Market membership. But beyond that, They do some incredible work in the realm of food equality and assuring that everyone has equal right to heathy food. Thrive has donated over 4.5 million dollars worth of groceries to needy families.
Thrive is also Carbon Neutral, using thanks to carbon offsets from wind powered warehouses and ground shipping, and are striving to be carbon negative in the near future. They have also diverted over 90% of the waste from their warehouses and found ways for it to be recycled and reused, reclaimed or composted!
