By choosing to shop with Martie you are making a conscious effort to stop food waste one meal at a time, help reduce your carbon footprint, and ultimately look out for Mother Nature.
While we deeply value helping our Martie family save money, we recognize that helping this beautiful planet that we call home is equally as important. Every year around 108 billion pounds of food is wasted in America. In fact, nearly 40% of all food produced in the United States is thrown out. Not only is this actual food being wasted, but so is all the energy and resources used to grow and manufacture them.
Shopping surplus helps to lower this number, feed more people, and spark a change in an issue that is not talked about enough. Just like how switching to a plant based diet, using a metal straw, and biking places are ways that YOU can help the environment- how and where you buy your groceries also has an effect!
Thank you for choosing to be a part of the “57% that are willing to change their purchasing habits to help reduce negative environmental impact” -NRF.
