In my never ending quest to find great non-toxic and low/zero waste products one of my favorite places to turn is Grove Collaborative. I’ve been a fan for a while particularly because they’re a Certified B Corp, and their selection just keeps getting better. I’ve been even more reliant on them recently because I can have everything shipped to my door. I can limit the amount of deliveries I’m getting and the number of times I have to go out for things we need. I wanted to share some of my favorite non-toxic and low waste products from them (more on that below), but also an incredible free product offer exclusive to Grove, which is a free month’s worth of Sustain period-care products for new customers.
The Sustain 100% organic cotton pads and liners were my go-to for postpartum bleeding. As I’ve made the move towards non-toxic products in all aspects of my life, feminine hygiene is something that’s so important but often forgotten. Sustain is a woman-led brand of sexual and reproductive health care products that are all natural and have completely transparent ingredients. The FDA DOES NOT require tampon companies to disclose their ingredients (yes, you read that correctly). Toxic ingredients like fragrance and pesticides can be lurking in your feminine care products. Sustain’s tampons and pads are 100% organic cotton, and free of rayon, fragrance, and pesticides. The tampon applicator is also made of plant-based bioplastic. Sustain’s products are better-for-you, organic, vegan, fair-trade, and free of chemicals. All new customers receive a month’s worth of Sustain period-care products, including:
- Sustain Tampons (Box of 12)
- Sustain Pads (Box of 10)
- Sustain Ultra Thin Liners (Box of 24)
- Grove Hydrating Bar Soap
- 60 day VIP trial
Here are some of my favorite non-toxic and low waste products from Grove.
Bee’s Wrap – In 2018 over 5 million Americans used 10 or more rolls of plastic wrap. That’s 52 million rolls of plastic wrap making their way to a landfill in one year. Bee’s Wrap is the reusable, biodegradable, and compostable alternative to plastic wrap. Their beeswax is sourced from sustainably-managed hives in the US.
Full Circle Dish Brush – This refillable dish brush is made with bonterra plant plastic, bamboo, plant fiber bristles and recycled plastic.
Grove Collaborative Reusable Snack Bags – Save money and keep single use plastic out of the trash with these reusable snack bags made sustainably made from a food-safe, BPA and phthalate-free material.
Tree Free Facial Tissue and Paper Towels – Made from 100% sustainable bamboo these paper towels are also compostable so we don’t have to throw them in the trash. The tissues are made from bamboo and sugarcane and Seedling by Grove has also partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation so a portion of every Seedling purchase goes to plant trees across the US.
MaryRuth Organics Vegan Liquid Multivitamin – Craig loves this vegan multivitamin from MaryRuth Organics. It’s non-GMO, soy, nut, wheat, and dairy free.
Grove European Dishcloths – We’ve been able to cut way back on our paper towel usage with these reusable dishcloths. They’re also biodegradable so when no longer usable you can throw them in the compost. Just pop them in the microwave or dishwasher to disinfect.
100% Recycled Plastic Trash Bags – The fact of the matter is, trash is inevitable in our household, but these garbage bags are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, so no new plastic was used to make them.
