In a world where drive-thru hamburger joints and $1 pizza slices outnumber farmers markets and grocery stores, finding foods that nourish your body can be a challenge. Even when you make up your mind to choose whole foods that align with your holistic health goals, you too often end up in sticker-shock.
Trust me, I know how this goes — I’ve been that person in shock at checkout. A small bag of jerky shouldn’t cost 7 times the cost of french fries – and luckily I’ve discovered a new online marketplace that combats this trend. Thrive Market, a recently launched website, sells the wholesome, nourishing products that I use to love my body, at wholesale prices that are a lot more affordable.
Thrive Market offers an abundance of options for anyone who desires to eat whole foods and live well. Thrive has a really nice, curated mix of products to choose from that are the best-in-class of organic, non-GMO, vegan, raw, paleo and gluten free. Whatever your dietary preference you can filter the menu and find what you’re looking for. Like Costco or other warehouse clubs, Thrive Market is membership based. Thrive members purchase a membership for $59.95 per year. That’s just $5 per month if you break it down. With a Thrive Market membership comes access to more than 3,000 of the top organic, non-GMO, healthy products. You can simply browse the website, fill your cart with whatever products you like and have your order shipped directly to your home.
If the membership fee seems like a big commitment, no worries: Everyone can try out Thrive Market with a free one-month trial before you start paying the annual fee. This membership model is a key part of the business model. There’s strength in numbers — in other words, Thrive Market’s buying power, and the ability to get great deals, increases as membership increases.
But your Thrive Market membership fee has an even more important function. For every paying member who joins, Thrive Market will donate one free membership to a family in need. This social mission fits into Thrive Market’s larger goal— making healthy food accessible for everyone. Low-income families are most likely to eat unhealthy diets and suffer the long-term health consequences of those choices. Thrive Market is on a mission to make access to healthier choices easier — especially for those that have very little discretionary income, and are often forced to buy the cheapest food that isn’t always the most nutritious. I would much rather support a socially conscious company than an enormous corporation.
Not convinced yet? Just check out the Thrive Market website. You’ll be amazed at how quickly the savings add up — I know I was! Join the Thrive Market community, and you will have access to food, body, and household products that will help you with your body relationship and wellness journey.
