Buy fruit/vegetables in bulk
Buying in bulk is a responsible consumption action that has the following advantages:
Reduce the number of disposable containers or plastics that end up in landfills or distributed in nature. According to the World Bank, each person generates 0.74 kg of waste in a single day.
We acquire the necessary quantity of each product. This way we save money, consume fresher food and there is less food waste.
We contribute to local commerce and agriculture. When we buy fruit and vegetables, it is also necessary to select products that come from closest to where we live.
How to overcome the challenge
Go to an establishment that sells fruit and vegetables in bulk
Take the products with a reusable bag or directly in the basket
When you get home, put the purchased products directly in the refrigerator or cupboard.
