Shopping online saves consumers time and money, but not everything can be bought on the web.
Shopping online saves consumers time and money. Many companies are now starting to offer online grocery shopping to help consumers accomplish this often boring task more efficiently. According to The Week, this new trend could help protect the environment.
“A lot of times people think they have to inconvenience themselves to be greener, and that actually isn’t the case here,” Anne Goodchild, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Washington, told the news source. “From an environmental perspective, grocery delivery services overwhelmingly can provide emissions reductions.”
A recent study from the University of Washington found that grocery delivery services help to significantly reduce carbon emissions, as it cuts a major cause of regular car traffic out of the picture – grocery shopping.
In general, doing your shopping online can help you save money, but now it can help save the planet as well. You can keep saving more by just doing you shopping here, and focus on getting the best deals in every online transaction.
