For the world we all call home.

We believe sustainable products can build a brighter, better future for everyone.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do

We envision a world where the products you use at home actually do good for human and environmental health. To make that vision a reality, we’re focused on three areas where we can make the greatest positive impact: Plastic, Trees, and Carbon.

PLASTIC

Today: 100% plastic neutral

Up next: Plastic-free by 2025

TREES

Today: Reforestation supported by Seedling

Up next: 1 million trees planted by 2022

CARBON

Today: Carbon neutral shipments & facilities

Up next: Reduce our entire footprint

Change starts at home — ours and yours

As a certified B Corp, our values exist as actions, not words. We’re committed to supporting our communities, reducing our impact, and leading the way to a healthier future. And we have a plan to get there.

Grove is the first plastic neutral retailer in the world

This means that for every ounce of plastic you receive from Grove, we’ll divert the same amount of plastic from the ocean through our partners at Plastic Bank. Being plastic neutral is a large step toward our goal of being plastic-free by 2025.

We believe using plastic isn’t sustainable — period

OUR COMMITMENT: MOVE BEYOND PLASTIC

100% Plastic Neutral

Up to 12 million tons of plastic enter the ocean every year (that's 24 billion pounds). At Grove, we want to be part of the solution, not the problem. As we move beyond plastic, our first step is to be plastic neutral. We’re the only retailer in the world where you can shop knowing that every purchase, no matter the brand or product, will not contribute to the world’s plastic problem.

Plastic-free by 2025

Over the next five years, we're removing plastic from every product we make and sell. We’re committed to rethinking our products, transitioning our packaging, and leading our industry with full transparency. To learn more, read our full plan to go plastic-free.

We believe reforestation is crucial for environmental health

OUR COMMITMENT: PLANT 1 MILLION TREES

On a Mission to Replant Forests

Seedling by Grove is our line of tree-free paper products made entirely from bamboo, a sustainable fiber. Not only does Seedling avoid deforestation, but the brand replants forests in the U.S. in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation.

1 Million Trees by 2022

We’re well on our way, with over 635,000 trees planted as of 2020. Over the next three years, we’re on track to plant one million trees, and once mature, these trees will sequester over 66 tons of carbon each year.

OUR PARTNERS

Arbor Day Foundation

The Arbor Day Foundation is the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with more than one million members, supporters, and valued partners. Their vision is to help others understand and use trees as a solution to many of the global issues we face today, including air quality, water quality, climate change, deforestation, and poverty.

Canopy

Grove is a proud member of Canopy's Pack4Good network of brands committed to sourcing all forest-based fibers from recycled FSC sources by 2022. Our Responsible Paper, Packaging, and Fiber Policy outlines our goals to ensure that our supply chain is deforestation-free and never contributes to the loss of ancient and endangered forests.

Grove is also a partner of Palm Done Right. We are currently developing a responsible palm sourcing policy to ensure our products do not contribute to deforestation and other detrimental impacts on the environment.

We believe every business should drastically lower its carbon emissions

OUR COMMITMENT: REDUCE OUR FOOTPRINT

Carbon Neutral Shipping & Facilities

We offset the emissions generated by delivering every Grove shipment through projects that remove the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. We do this by supporting forest conservation, renewable energy, and waste-to-energy projects. In addition, all Grove facilities and offices are either powered by renewable energy purchased through local utility providers, or we support solar energy projects through the purchase of equivalent Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).

Setting Science Based Targets

Grove is committed to taking meaningful action on climate. In addition to the efforts we have made to neutralize key business activities, we have followed industry best practices to set Science Based Targets (SBTs) for our most direct emissions, Scope 1-2, with plans to include our broader value chain, Scope 3, in 2021. Working with Point380 to analyze our footprint, Grove's emissions for Scope 1-2 in 2019 equaled 1,124 MT CO2e (not including any REC or offset purchases). We remain on track to reach our SBT goal, and look forward to working with our suppliers to better understand our broader impact as a business next year. We will publish our complete footprint report this summer, which will include further detail on our energy usage by location, emissions and offset projects.
