Who wouldn’t want their grocery shopping paid for, for a whole 12 months? Well, that’s exactly what waste-free supermarket Forrist are offering with their upcoming giveaway. One lucky winner will be treated to a whopping £200 every month for an entire year to spend on Forrist products. That’s a total of £2400 to spend on their vast selection of sustainable, organic, plant-based products. And entering couldn’t be easier, just submit a video explaining why sustainability is important to you. Forrist will then pick their three favourite videos based on how entertaining, informative and unique they are, and have the public decide which of the three shall be crowned the winner, so get creative!
This is being done in an effort to encourage people to rethink the way they shop in regular supermarkets. Forrist’s M.O. is sustainable, conscious shopping. That means 100% plastic-free, organic, plant-based products, with the goal that you’ll be left with zero-waste, from the products to their packaging. Most supermarkets, however, are less concerned with their ecological responsibilities, and so you’ll come home from your weekly shop with heaps of single use packaging. Through hosting this competition, Forrist want people to stop and consider the environmental consequences of this kind of shopping, and are hoping to demonstrate that more sustainable options are available and they are equally, if not more, convenient than your local supermarket.
On their inspiration for the giveaway, Forrist say “supermarkets are convenient, but more often than not, they are also wasteful, with limited options for sustainable shopping. For many, shopping consciously might mean spending a lot of time and effort traveling far or visiting a variety of different places, a luxury that many people don’t have. But things are different at the Forrist. By shopping online with us, conscious, sustainable shopping becomes simpler than it’s ever been, and this competition is designed to show people you really can make the switch so easily. We want to demonstrate that at the Forrist, consciousness can be convenient.”
