Shopping online has become the way of life. We buy everything from clothing to groceries to cars and furniture. If you want it the internet has it. I personally am not a big online shopper, but I have found one company that I love buying household essentials from, and it is Grove Collaborative.
Grove Collaborative is a company bringing products that are gentler for the earth. They make sure all of their products have met the standards of non-toxicity, efficacy, sustainability, and are cruelty-free. Now, I know you're probably thinking their products have got to be crazy expensive, but the cool part is, they aren't. I have found that most of their products are the same price and sometimes even less for members then all the other big box companies offering the same products. And, in addition they offer exclusive Grove Collaborative products that are made of and consist of high quality materials sustainably sourced.
Here are some of my favorite products and a breakdown of how their affordable membership works.
First, I absolutely love their exclusive Grove Collaborative cleaning concentrates. They offer a variety of cleaners for windows, floors, tub & tile, a daily shower cleaner, and an all purpose cleaner. These concentrates come in a recyclable tube that you simply twist open and pour into one of their amazing glass spray bottles with water.
Which, brings me to their next favorite product, the glass spray bottles with silicone sleeve. You can pick which color sleeve you would like and coordinate it with your cleaner concentrate. For example, the all purpose cleaner comes in a grey tube and has a matching grey silicone sleeve for the bottle.
The next favorite product in my house is the sink caddy with bamboo handled scrub brush and walnut sponge. This caddy is stylish and convenient. The stoneware tray has enough room for the scrub brush, sponge and dish soap dispenser.
In addition to Grove Collaborative offering their exclusively branded products they also carry other known brands that meet their companies standards, such as Method, Mrs. Myers, Seventh Generation, Smarty Pants, Zarbees, Bulldog men's personal care products, etc....
One of my personal favorite new products I just stated using and absolutely love is Alba Botanica Sea Mineral Cleansing Gel. This face cleanser is gentle, smells amazing, and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and silky smooth. Now, I could continue listing other amazing products, but you just need to trust me and head on over to their store and try if for yourself.
Finally, how does it all work? It is free to shop at Grove Collaborative. You simply purchase the products, like you would from any other online retailer and pay a flat rate of $2.99 for shipping or you can sign up for their V.I.P Membership, which I highly recommend. The V.I.P membership costs only $19.99 for a year and you receive free shipping every time your order ships, customizable monthly auto-shipments, 4 free full-sized gifts throughout the year, exclusive sales, and early access to new products.
I personally love that each month I receive a reminder email that my order will be shipping soon which reminds me to login to my account and update my cart. Usually, my previously ordered products are already in my cart so I am able to make adjustments before shipping just in case I don't need to replenish certain products quite yet. It also gives me the opportunity to explore new products and take advantage of special free gifts with purchase.
Oh, and one other amazing aspect of Grove Collaborative is their costumer service. No matter what time of day you can get a hold of someone to handle any of your questions and concerns. They also act quickly to resolve any issues. So what are you waiting for, get over there and check out this amazing company (not a sponsor, but highly recommend).
