The shop aims to provide our customers with access to unique projects through our collection of vetted partner organizations, ranging from conservation to plastic collection and carbon offsets. Many projects are not publicly available, or require larger purchase quantities rather than the small increments available on our site. Grove will aggregate customer purchases to each partner and make monthly contributions to the named projects in the shop. We are working with each partner organization to find ways to report out on the Grove community’s impact - whether through customized websites or social media - and will share more when we can.
Will I get a certificate of donation or something in my box?
While we considered including a recycled paper card detailing project details to each customer Grove box, we ultimately decided not to, in order to minimize environmental impact. We are working on creative ways to share both individual and community impact and hope to have more details soon!
There will be a record in your order history, however we are unable to provide each customer with a specific donation record. This is primarily as a result of the way the process works - which is that we are aggregating customer purchases to make one larger contribution on behalf of the Grove community. We are working with each partner organization to publish updates on the Grove community’s impact via customized websites, or social media and will work to report out as soon as we have more to share.
How did Grove determine the pricing? Does it all go to the partner?
Grove is committed to curating this shop with unique and specific offerings that are not always publicly available, as well as vetting partner organizations. Pricing for each of the projects varies by level and by partner with a portion of each purchase dedicated to the maintenance of this program, and our commitment to offer high-impact, high-quality impact projects to the Grove community.
