Purchasing supplies in bulk limits the amount of packaging. Bulk purchasing can be applied to toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, soap, detergent, condiments, glassware, food, and much more.
Bulk-packaged items require less packaging than the equivalent amount of individually-packaged goods. By purchasing in volume, the energy and natural resources required to manufacture containers and packaging is reduced. Buying in bulk also saves money because bulk items are usually discounted.
