About a month ago I received my first shipment from Grove Collaborative, an ethical and environmentally friendly home products company. Grove is a Certified B Corp meaning they meet the rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. They carry brands like Seventh Generation, Mrs. Meyers, Method, Dr. Bronner’s, Tom’s of Maine, Thayer’s, and more! From household cleaning products to beauty products to baby products, they have anything you would need.
Grove Collaborative is subscription service that delivers products to your door on a monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis. I decided to sign up for Grove because I came across an offer that I couldn’t pass up. They were giving away $30 of Mrs. Meyer’s products with a purchase of $25. I was already in need of cleaning supplies, so I figured I’d give it a shot! Plus, I had seen a lot of bloggers post about it…and you guys know I’m a sucker for referrals!
Here’s what I got:
I purchased new kitchen towels, Microfiber cleaning cloths, dishwashing gloves, dishwashing liquid, and walnut scouring pads. In return, I got Mrs. Meyer’s dishwashing liquid, hand soap, and surface cleaner. Not to mention the super cute tin can to hold everything in!
I had my previous kitchen towels since college, so it was time for an upgrade. These grey striped kitchen towels are made of 100% cotton and are super durable! I can use them to dry dishes or as a pad for hot pans. They came in a 2 pack for less than $10. You can also find them in red, navy or beige.
Like my kitchen towels, I’ve been using the same microfiber cleaning cloths since college. And I made the mistake of washing them like the rest of my linens — hot water, laundry detergent, and fabric softener (microfiber cleaning tips here). These all-purpose microfiber cloths are great for capturing dust. Living in an apartment, I feel like I’m constantly dusting, so these cloths are miracle workers!
Whether it’s the drip pans, inside of the oven, or a baking dish, I’m always using scour pads to clean up a tough mess. So when I saw these Walnut Scour Pads, I was curious to see if they’d really work. They’re made with crushed walnuts sustainably farmed in the US. How cool?! And, yes, they work great like regular scour pads!
These cleaning gloves were so cute I couldn’t pass them up! I wear gloves most often when washing dishes, and sometimes when I’m doing heavy duty cleaning. Gloves definitely save a manicure! My last pair were from Target and they were too big. These gloves are more fitting and have a super cute design on the cuff.
You can never have enough dishwashing liquid! This was a no-brainer when looking to meet the minimum purchase. I love Seventh Generation products! They’re free of fragrances, dyes, and triclosan. I’ve become more conscious of the products I use and the chemicals in them. This is one of the reasons I love Grove!
As a part of the promotion, I got all three of these Mrs. Meyer’s products for free. I was able to select which products and which scents, so I chose the Multi-surface Cleaner in Geranium, Dish Soap in Bluebell, and Hand Soap in Honeysuckle. I really love the Bluebell and Honeysuckle scents, but the Geranium is a little too strong for my liking.
Lastly, how cute is this cleaning bucket?! Let’ be honest, this bucket was the whole reason I signed up for Grove. The bucket is about 9″ wide and 5″ tall, which isn’t big enough for all of my supplies but it’s perfect to use for decor. I decided to pot some lavender in it and put it in our guest bathroom.
Overall, I definitely don’t need new supplies every month. Luckily, I can customize the service to be delivered as often as I’d like (monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, etc). However, I find it easier to just purchase these items on my weekly grocery run or via Amazon.
Have you tried Grove? What are your thoughts?
