I wanted to tell you all about my latest obsession, THRIVE MARKET. If you haven’t heard about it yet, think Amazon meets Costco meets Trader Joes. They’ve got organics, non-GMO, paleo/gluten-free foods, non-toxic cleaning and body products, treats and toys for pets, and everything for babies and kids from snacks and soaps to diapers and burp cloths. PLUS, attention busy moms constantly on the lookout for new snack ideas and people who are trying to eat clean but get fu$&ing sick of eating the same 8 foods day after day… They’ve brought together a TON of really neat snacks I’ve never seen before and can’t wait to try!!! Sprouted onion ring crisps, get in my belly!!!
And they’ve got some really great policies that make shopping with them a super easy decision for me:
Thrive Market also offers free shipping on orders over $49 to anywhere in the continental US. I just let my basket fill up as I think of things I need and once I hit that free shipping mark I close out my order. I’ll be taking major advantage of LOTS of free shipping this year for Christmas treats for my family (both my human family AND our fur babies)
What’s amazing to me is that they keep these prices super affordable AND have an amazing mission.
Thrive Gives Back AND Pays it Forward
For every membership purchased, Thrive gives a free membership to a low-income family to help make real food affordable to everyone. Through the company’s Thrive Gives initiative, every paid membership is matched with a free membership for a low-income American family. Thanks to Thrive Gives, thousands of Americans who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford healthy and natural products will have easy access to similarly or lower-priced alternatives to highly processed and artificial products found at traditional supermarkets.
Thrive also uses recycled packaging, and purchases carbon offsets. Currently they even claim to be completely carbon neutral!
For less than $5 a month ($59.95 annually), members get access to over 2,500 of the highest quality food, supplements, home, personal care, and beauty products; great brands like Dr. Bronners, Braggs, Nutiva, Whole Earth Sweetener, the Earth-Friendly products, and many more, all at 25–50% below retail prices. Here’s a list of just a few items I found in my search (these are all regulars in my shopping cart, both virtual and in-store) that have about a $5 savings over Amazon (the savings on these items would basically pay for a month of membership) :
- Wholesome Earth Organic Cane Sugar
- Jason Powersmile Toothpaste
- 1lb ground celtic salt
- Herbal Armor natural bug spray
- Earth-Friendly Natural Dish detergent
- Great Lakes pasture-raised gelatin
- Nutiva Red Palm Oil
- Tikka Masala simmer sauce
- Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
After that it’s all gravy! Plus you’re giving a family in need a chance to get access to these amazing products and save money too!!!
They also offer regular giveaways, a referral program, AND, as if that’s not enough, right now they’re offering an ADDITIONAL 25% off your first order, on THE ENTIRE ORDER. This is what really pushed me over the edge from being a lookey-loo into a member! But the 25% off offer ends THURSDAY!!!!
