If you thought that online grocery shopping is only for busy bees or couch potatoes, then it’s time to think again. A research conducted recently by the University of Washington has found out that shopping from the various grocery stores available online is more environment-friendly in comparison to heading to the store in your car. When you opt for grocery delivery, you actually cut down considerably on carbon dioxide emissions, to a minimum of 50% in comparison to individual automobile trips to the grocery shop.
Experienced teams delivering grocery delivery service can serve customers in a clustered manner, without missing their deadlines. This means that in a single trip, they can cover more than one customer across the same route. This eventually leads to minimization of trips that not only implies efficiency of the concerned store but also ensures an increasingly greener environment, again with reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
Yes, many would indeed argue that there is nothing wrong in walking to the grocery store. But with all those stringent schedules hovering over the head, how many really consider walking to the grocery store, unless it is extremely close by, just like a next door neighbor? You will either take a bike or a car or catch a bus rather than doing some walking exercise. Given this realistic scenario, if you opt for online grocery shopping, it will definitely lead to the greenest results.
At the end of a long, monotonous and hectic day, it is much more hassle-free to get online in your laptop, mobile, tablet, desktop or Smartphone and order for your groceries. There’s no need to go for a late night run or an early morning rush to the store. So, leave your car or bike parked, and shop online for your grocery requirements, in turn making this earth at least a bit greener.
