I’ve noticed a few people saying that Soylent “isn’t that cheap” at $65 per week. Now obviously these are the people who are mostly uneducated on the issue who haven’t been paying attention and who seem to ignore the “we’re going to make it cheaper after mass production” rebuttal.
However, I just thought of another benefit to Soylent that is a good rebuttal of the “it’s not that cheap” argument: You will save money on gas by not having to grocery shop as much.
I don’t know about you guys, but my mother regularly makes a minimum of 2-3 trips to the grocery store per week because she cooks regularly for our family. And I am sure there are millions of people in the same boat. Eliminating just one of those trips per week for the average consumer could possibly save them hundreds of dollars on gasoline costs per year.
Paying for gas regularly is something that everyone can relate to, so I think this is a good thing to mention to people when trying to sell them on the cost benefits of Soylent.
