As of January 1, 2020 - all of the plastic shipped on Grove’s site was offset through a partnership with Plastic Bank - which means that we are measuring the volume of plastic we ship, and collecting the equivalent volume of ocean-bound plastic. This is what we mean when we say that Grove is “plastic neutral.” This is something we are committing to and paying for at Grove. This is not as a cost that we pass on to our customers, and prices won’t change, but we hope this puts our customers at ease that they are shopping with a brand that is not only values aligned, but that is committed to being a force for positive impact.
The availability of products won’t change overnight - but we are committed to collaborating with our valued third party brands to change our packaging to offer more sustainable and plastic-free solutions. Grove’s products will also transition to different packaging as well as offer new types of products that decrease our use of plastic - such as shampoo and conditioner bars and concentrated cleaners.
Prices won’t change, as we are dedicated to making this a change that keeps Grove boxes affordable and provides customers with continued access to the natural products that originally brought them to Grove!
