THRIVE- THE SMART WAY TO SAVE MONEY ON HEALTHY FOOD
I live in a small town in Washington State where I was born and raised. When I moved back here from Seattle I was worried that I would not have access to the variety of Natural and Organic products I had easily available at nearby stores. Fortunately, we have a couple locally owned stores committed to making good food available to our community. This isn’t always the case in rural communities. It can be a challenge in large cities too; you may have heard the term “Food Deserts” – for more on food equity and what that means to people and communities, please read my post from earlier this month here: Part One: Food Equity, Where Does It Fit In? Part Two: The Impact of Food Insecurity, Part Three will follow soon. I can also fill in missing favorites by ordering from Thrive Market.
On-line shopping has become so easy and convenient and grocery shopping is no exception. On the Fresh Look Foods’ website, you can purchase products two ways directly Fresh Look Foods website. We partner with both Amazon and Thrive Market. Everyone is familiar with Amazon but Thrive Market, is not quite so well-known. They’re a fantastic option for shopping for Natural and Organic foods.Thrive offers something for anyone and everyone who wants to eat healthier and live well. They have a great mix of products to choose from that are best-in-class of organic, non-GMO, vegan, raw, paleo and gluten free. The company’s merchandising team works directly with brands to purchase natural, healthy food and products at wholesale prices. These prices are typically 25 to 50 percent lower than what the same products sell for in brick and mortar stores. Instead of adding on the typical markup, Thrive Market passes the savings on to their customers. All of the products they offer are sold at true wholesale prices. They’re really looking out for the average shopper! One of the things I love about Thrive is seeing the total amount I’ve saved to date on the products I’ve purchased.
Like Costco or other warehouse clubs, Thrive Market is membership based. Members purchase a membership for $59.95 per year – just $5 per month. If the membership fee seems like a big commitment, you can try it out with 30 Day Trial Membership before you pay the annual fee. With a Thrive membership comes access to more than 3,000 of the top organic, non-GMO, healthy products. They make it really easy to shop. Every single product is tagged by over 90 different values like Non-GMO, Organic, Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo, Sustainably Farmed, etc. You can simply browse the website, fill your cart with whatever products you like, and have your order shipped directly to your home. This membership model is a key part of the business model. There’s strength in numbers – Thrive’s buying power and the ability to get great deals, increases as membership increases.

A Thrive Market membership fee has an even more important function. For every paying member who joins, Thrive Market donates one free membership to a family in need. This social mission fits into Thrive’s larger goal – making healthy food accessible to everyone. Low-income families are most likely to eat unhealthy diets and suffer the long-term health consequences of those choices. Having very little discretionary income often forces families to buy the cheapest food, low in nutrition. Applying for the free membership is a quick and easy process. If you find yourself in this position, don’t feel shame in applying for a free membership, feel empowered that you are making healthy and smart choices and improving your life with safe and healthy foods and products.
Your membership will pay for itself in savings within the year, guaranteed. If not, you get the difference in Thrive Market credit when you renew.
