Buying supplies in large quantities at a lower unit price.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Bulk purchasing decreases overall purchase costs and required packaging and container materials. It also decreases waste disposal, which limits the amount of trash added to landfills. Bulk purchasing also decreases transportation costs and related pollution.
For New Orleans
Bulk purchasing means less packing materials and less waste for New Orleans. Bulk purchasing reduces the city’s carbon footprint and lowers druck deliveries into the city.
