About Grove Collaborative

Grove Collaborative's mission is to shrink the environmental footprint of the American household by making sustainable products the most convenient option for busy consumers. Instead of last minute runs to the corner store to restock toilet paper, laundry detergent, and shampoo, Grove Collaborative has created a platform that replaces those inconvenient errands with an app/service that's fun, economical and incredibly simple to manage. You receive your replacement product exactly when you're running low, ensuring that you never run out of the products you believe in and use every day. 

Additionally, Grove Collaborative wants to make sure everyone has access to the best products for your home: products that are effective, sustainable, and well-designed. Grove Collaborative's curated selection of brands (many of which are fellow B Corps) and products reflect those values, making it easy to stay stocked up on the products you love and to discover new ones. 

We became a Certified B Corp because we believe in authenticity and transparency. In a world of deliberately ambiguous messaging, B Corps are a unique community committed to upholding strong values in their business mission. We joined to demonstrate our commitment to values driven business, and to learn from our peer B Corps for ways we can continue to improve.

The Change We Seek®

Historically, the largest companies with the best distribution have dominated placement on retail shelves.  But, with ecommerce, sustainable products—whether from large companies or small ones—can be delightful to discover and simple to receive. Grove Collaborative allows consumers who want to make conscious choices a convenient, cost effective, and engaging way to always get the good stuff. Many of Grove Collaborative's best selling product lines are fellow Certified B Corps including method, Seventh Generation, and Preserve, all of whom have loyal subscribers through the Grove Collaborative platform.

To meet the same standards as their forward-thinking suppliers, Grove Collaborative carbon-offsets 100% of all shipping, uses recycled materials wherever possible, and sends customers tips (via shipping literature) on how to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Education and empowerment are a core part of what makes the Grove Collaborative community loyal to their platform and brands. 

Grove Collaborative's mission extends beyond simply increasing the usage of sustainable products.  In every action the company takes, they seek to communicate that “there are things I can do, and enjoy, to participate in living well and sustainably.”

What makes us a better company?
