Cleaning Product Haul | Grove Collaborative

My husband and I have been trying to focus more on purchasing sustainable products that are good quality while reducing our plastic use and waste. My husband has been the one in the household making this push and I think we are going in the right direction.

A few years ago we made the switch to glass cleaning bottles that are reusable and every since then we have been trying to reduce our waste. I do not know how my husband heard of Grove Collaborative but one day he mentioned to me about their concentrated cleaners. Now I have known about this brand already for a long time but never really thought much about them or looked into their products. He was very interested in trying out these cleaners because it would help us reduce waste. So after much discussion we decided to place our first order.

Before we get into the products we purchased please know that this is post is not sponsored and this company did not reach out to me in any way. This is my own purchase and review.

How Grove Collaborative Works

According to their website, Grove offers over 150 sustainable brands that meet their own strict standards for being non-toxic, effective, sustainable, and cruelty-free. They also sell their own brand of products. They are a free service with a flat rate shipping of $4.99 for orders under $49. You do not need to sign up for reoccurring shipping when you make a purchase, but they do push for this. If you sign up for a membership it means they will ship products to your home monthly. You can bypass this and just buy what you want and have it shipped and skip the monthly shipping. I will say be careful because when we placed out order they make it tricky by automatically placing random items in your cart and trying to make you ship monthly. This was a big turnoff and I think it is sneaky of them. Something I loved was the amount of free products that came with our first order. They offered us three different packages to choose from and each had multiple products.

What we purchased

Multi-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate Two Pack in Balsam Fir
Seventh Generation Easy Dose Ultra Concentrated Laundry Detergent
Method Squirt + Mop Wood Floor Cleaner

What we got for free

Grove Co. Plastic-Free Set which included:
Multi-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate
Glass Cleaner Concentrate
Walnut Scrubber Sponge Pack
Reusable Glass Cleaning Spray Bottle with Silicone Sleeve
Cleaning Caddy

Our thoughts so far

So we haven’t yet had the chance to try out each product because we need to use up some products already in use. We have been purchasing Method brand and Seventh Generation brand for a few years so I am not worried about those. That is one of the things I like about Grove. I can purchase brands I already know and love. The only concentrated product we have used so far is the orange and rosemary multipurpose cleaner and so far we like it. It smells great and does the job. I used the cleaning caddy to organize some products underneath my sink. Also, my husband already created a favorites list and even downloaded their app, so if that tells you anything? The only downside and thing I do not like about Grove is the push for monthly subscription. They seem to be sneaky about it also. I do see us purchasing from them again in the near future.
