I’m excited to announce that Bowl of Delicious is partnering with Thrive Market to bring you 25% off and free shipping on healthy foods (and more)!
Have you heard of Thrive Market before? It’s a wonderful company with an even more wonderful social mission that is very near and dear to my heart.
Thrive Market offers popular natural and organic products at wholesale prices through a $60/year membership, or $5/month. Think Costco meets Whole Foods online. And the best part? For every paid membership, Thrive donates one membership to a low-income American family.
I am so happy to be able to offer my readers a promotional discount to Thrive Market- 25% off, plus free shipping on your first order! No coupon code needed- just click over to Thrive Market’s website via the links in this post for an automatic coupon :-)
Let me tell you a little bit more about this company, how they help you save money on health foods, and their mission.
Thrive Market’s Insanely Low Prices
Thrive Market is able to sell their items at a super low price because they make their money from membership fees, not from selling products. They work directly with high quality companies to get products at a wholesale price.
Brands that you know and love- like Annie’s, Bob’s Red Mill, Dr. Bronner’s, Spectrum, Eden Foods, Jason Naturals, Seventh Generation, etc. are available for typically 25 to 50 percent lower than what the same products sell for in brick and mortar stores, and most online retailers. I know I’ve found some amazing deals on Thrive Market — like this Nutiva coconut oil that’s $6 cheaper than what I normally pay! Perfect for these whole grain blueberry banana oat muffins.
Thrive Market’s Products- not just food!
But they also carry beauty and cleaning products that are free of toxic ingredients. Like Schmidt’s deodorant (my new favorite thing). Or like Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Castille Soap (the most amazing all-purpose soap in the world).
It’s truly a one-stop-shop for all your healthy lifestyle needs.
Thrive Market’s Social Mission (and why it’s important to me)
Endorsing an entire company on my blog is not something I take lightly. I would never promote a product or organization I didn’t believe in or trust, and would never want to spam my readers with multiple partnerships. But when I learned about Thrive’s social mission to help low income families save money on health foods, I knew I had to be a part of it.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, you may know that I used to be a teacher in low-income charter high schools. Closing the achievement gap in education was the focus of these schools- I’m sure you are aware of the vast differences in education available for affluent families verses low-income families in the United States.
But did you know that there is also a huge gap in availability of healthy foods for low-income vs. affluent families in the United States?
Stores like Whole Foods, organic sections of grocery stores, and other healthy items are far more prevalent in areas of higher income, meaning people with higher incomes have easier access to healthy, organic foods and products. Thrive Market is the first platform to address the geographic, economic, and educational barriers to health food access.
Their free memberships for low-income families is only one part of how they are doing this. They partner with major non-profits in order to distribute memberships, they raise money through donations in order to help pay for groceries for their lowest-income members, and they participate in social advocacy campaigns to help make healthy living accessible for all. They created a course for their members to teach healthy habits on a budget. Last year, they started a petition for the USDA to allow the use of food stamps to buy healthy food online, and created a bi-partisan coalition to bring awareness to this situation.
It was a hard decision to change my career to full-time blogging, and since making the transition, I’ve felt more and more removed from the mission I worked so hard towards for so many years. I’m so excited to be able to work with a company who is dedicated to helping close the socio-economic gap in health foods access! You can learn more about Thrive’s social action at thriveaction.org.
Not sure if you should try it?
I get it- commitment is scary. This is why I’ll never get a tattoo, even though I love them on other people.
But don’t worry- Thrive will let you try it out for a month before committing to the yearly membership fee! And it’s also great to know that there is always free shipping for orders over $49.
I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather support a business with a good mission who isn’t solely in it for huge profits, especially if I also am going to save money doing it. And ESPECIALLY if I get to save an extra 25% off on already low prices! You know I’m all about good deals, especially when it means I save money on health foods.
