Attention all Kiara Loves KC readers! I have some exciting news for you. I would like to introduce the newest Kiara Loves KC affiliate, Thrive Market! Read on to learn all about Thrive Market’s all-natural and organic online food market and health store, plus get a free 30 day trial membership!
Thrive Market is the first socially conscious online store offering the world’s best-selling natural and organic products at wholesale prices. They carry over 2,500 of the highest quality food, supplements, home, personal care, and beauty products from over 400 of the best brands on the market, all delivered straight to your door at 25-50% off retail prices. Thrive is a membership community that uses the power of direct buying to deliver the world’s best healthy food and natural products to their members at wholesale prices and to sponsor free Thrive memberships for low-income American families. Their mission is to make health living easy, affordable, and accessible for every American family.
The people behind Thrive Market believe that the ability to live a healthy lifestyle shouldn’t depend on income level, geography, or any other arbitrary barrier. Whether you’re a corporate executive or an elementary school teacher, whether you live on the upper west-side of Manhattan or in a small town with no local health food store, they think you and your family should have access to healthy, wholesome, and non-toxic products at or below the price of their processed, artificial, and often toxic alternatives. That hasn’t been the case for a long time in this country and they wanted to do something about it.
The Thrive Market catalog is curated to include the top products from hundreds of the leading natural products brands across categories like cooking ingredients, healthy snacks, nutritional supplements, natural home goods, and bath & beauty. What you won’t find: 115 different varieties of almond butter stretching down an aisle as far as the eye can see. What you will find: over 2,500 of the most popular natural products from the very best brands – brands that exude the values of health, sustainability, and premium quality.
They’ve meticulously merchandised the catalog to enure exceptional coverage across dozens of key dietary preferences and values. From Paleo and gluten-free to vegan and raw to non-GMO and certified organic, they’ve got you covered. Just as importantly, they’ve painstakingly tagged every product in their catalog along 90+ such filters so that you can easily customize your shopping experience to your preferences and values with a click of the mouse.
Like Costco, Netflix, and NPR, Thrive Market is a membership community. By paying the equivalent of just $5/month ($59.95 annually), your membership fee makes it possible for Thrive Market’s curators to search high and low for the best healthy products, buy them directly from suppliers, and combine their buying power to bring them to the Thrive community at 25-50% below retail prices. This allows them to sustain the mission to make healthy living universally accessible.
Thrive Market offers a free 30-day trial for every new member. The idea is to give you a chance to experience Thrive savings first-hand before you commit to an annual membership. Your free trial starts with your first Thrive purchase and will last a full month with full membership benefits. If at any point during that time, you decide you don’t want to be a Thrive member, you can cancel and they’ll never charge your card for a membership.
Thrive Market wants their community to enjoy shopping and saving with for years to come. That’s why your annual membership is guaranteed to pay for itself in savings. All you have to do is shop and save. If you don’t make your membership fee back in savings by the end of the year, they’ll automatically give you the difference in Thrive Market credit after you renew. For example, if your membership fee was $60, and you only saved $40 in the year, they will automatically add a $20 Thrive credit to your account after you renew.
“Our target is everyday American families,” says Nick Green, Thrive’s co-founder and co-CEO, a duty he shares with serial entrepreneur Gunnar Lovelace. By “everyday”, he means middle-class Americans—mostly moms—who are shopping for the entire family, and “want to buy healthy choices on a budget.” (From Civil Eats article, “Can Thrive Market be a Kinder, Gentler Amazon for Organic Food?”
The team behind Thrive Market is a group of serial social entrepreneurs, technologists, and natural products industry veterans brought together by two shared realizations: (1) that living healthy in America is too hard for too many people, and (2) that it shouldn’t be that way. Before Thrive ever launched, they spent more than a year developing the right business model, enrolling hundreds of brand and charity partners, and bringing an incredible group of health experts, entrepreneurs, and advisers together to tackle the ambitious goal of making healthy living truly accessible to every American.
