Thrive Market- A Healthy NON GMO Online Market

So I'm obsessed with Thrive Market!  I get my pea protein, Castile soap, GoMacro protein bars, Coconut oil, natural non-toxic sunscreen (I use Badger)  and other healthy stuff from them for 25- 50 % off retail prices.

The products are delivered to your home and are all NON GMO!  (Find out how you can get FREE shipping too!)

So the way Thrive Market works is it's a membership company (like Costco).  You pay a yearly fee for the wholesale prices!  (It's currently $59 for a year.  But they do have a FREE one month trial period to see if you like it!)

But what I love, love, love about this company is that for EVERY membership paid for, they GIVE a FREE membership to a low income family!  (I've already had two memberships given on my behalf since I joined)

So here are some things I love about Thrive Market:

  • You can get healthy, NON GMO, products for 25 - 50%
  • You can get FREE shipping (on orders over $49)
  • They are the largest retailer of NON GMO products!
  • For every membership paid for, they DONATE a membership to a low income family
  • They have products for specific dietary conditions; GLUTEN FREE, paleo, vegan
  • Once they open a distribution center in Indiana many will get two day shipping!
  • They've started offering PET food and supplies!
This GoMacro line produces healthy, gluten free protein bars for when I'm on the go.  This one's the balanced protein but I also like the protein purity (peanut butter) one.
$47.85 $33.95  (Save 29%)

Here are a few of my other personal picks from Thrive Market:

Now Sports Organic Pea Protein: $26.99 $16.95  (Save 37%)
Now Foods Jojoba Oil: Retail: $35.99  $25.45 (Save 29%)

Navitas Natural Cocoa Nibs:  $10.85 $7.45  (Save 31%)
Halo's Spot's Stew Chicken Cat Food:  $18.95 $12.65  (Save 33%)
Eden Organic Pinto Beans 2 pack-BPA free lining:  $5.70 $3.95  (Save 31%)
Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk: $3.25 $2.15  (Save 34%)
Dr. Bronners Extra Virgin Coconut Oil:  $21.99 $14.95  (Save 32%)
Nutiva Hemp Protein: $19.79 $11.95  (Save 40%)

Here is the Thrive Market site where you can get your free one month trial:

This is a google hangout with the CEO's that I really enjoyed listening to.    (There are some technical difficulties since it's their first hangout but the content is great)

So here's my game plan because I still love Costco--Next year I'm going to CANCEL our Executive membership ($110) and get the regular membership (approx $50) and continue with Thrive.  That way I'll have BOTH memberships for what I've been paying for the Executive Membership!

What are some of your favorite Thrive Market Products?  I'd love to hear from you!

New England Journal of Medicine Calls for GMO Labeling

 The New England Journal of Medicine is calling for labeling of GM foods.  Read full article HERE.

There's also a link on that page to sign the petition to the FDA saying you have a right to know about foods that are GM.

What else can you do?  You can also boycott Coke Products as the Coca Cola company has donated millions of dollars to make sure GMO foods are NOT labeled!

#cokeboycott, #noGMO

What's wrong with GMO you ask?  See this blog post from earlier:  (it was mainly about Roundup Weed spray but covers the problems with creating GMO).
