i’m happy to be continuing my proud partnership with Grove Collaborative to keep some of my 2020 goals for living more sustainably and to provide you with some helpful ideas to easily achieve your goals as well. it’s more important than ever to take care of our planet, and Grove delivers a whole lot of healthy household products that are plant-based and sustainable right to your front door when you order online! this time i’m working on my laundry goals — i’ve been modifying my laundry routine to use less plastic laundry bottles and trying to avoid using the dryer as much as usual and line-dry my clothes instead. i’m loving the old school line-drying because all my clothes just generally smell that much fresher drying in the sunshine.

when new customers spend $39 or more, they will also receive a free Grove stoneware tray, in addition to the other free items! existing customers will get a free set of Grove walnut scrubber sponges.

i love using Grove’s refillable/reusable laundry vessel with their lavender-rosemary scented laundry detergent pouches with detergent with 96% plant-based ingredients and naturally scented (nothing synthetic). you can cut your laundry-related plastic waste with the laundry vessel, designed with a patent-pending auto-measurement feature that eliminates the need to measure detergent. you just fill and refill it with Grove’s ultra-concentrated laundry detergent and tip to pour and the dispenser will automatically stop when the perfect amount has been released — all the cleaning power you need with 80% less plastic waste.

since living a greener lifestyle with plant-based, sustainable products is the goal, i’ve also started using a collapsible wood clothes drying rack — i don’t have the proper space for a permanent clothesline, so this one is really handy and so portable. i can hang all my delicates to dry in the sunshine as well as large rugs and blankets that would normally take a long time to dryer dry thus using up a lot of needless energy. so if you’ve got a good spot in the sun, try going old school and line-dry, too. and since my washer dryer is outside my house, i grabbed one of Grove’s Collapsible Laundry Bags to easily transport my laundry in and out.

i’m also adding some fresh lavender scent to my laundry to make my clothes smell so much better. i use Grove’s glass room spray bottle & essential oil set with their organic calming lavender essential oil, adding about 20 drops of essential oil in your bottle, then filling the bottle halfway with witch hazel and the rest of the bottle with distilled water. shake the spray bottle to combine all the ingredients and you’ve got a really fresh scent to spray your clothes, and especially your bedding for a better night’s sleep.

Grove has lots of other laundry products you might like — i use their Laundry Delicates Bag Set for all my lingerie and bathing suits. and they carry wool dryer balls and sheets like mrs. meyers which are 99-percent naturally derived and as good for your clothes as they are for the earth. there’s also a great stain remover spray, with a bottle made from 80% post-consumer recycled material, and even laundry scent boosters to give your clothes, bed linens, and towels a spa vibe.

so, instead of thinking of laundry as a chore, you can think more in terms of creating some sweet-smelling laundry you’ll love to live in and feel good about, too. right now, Grove only ships to the lower 48 states — sorry, not canada, hawaii or alaska. at this time. with at least 8 million tons of plastic entering our oceans each year and only about 23% of plastic bottles getting recycled within the U.S. i think you’ll feel good about shopping with Grove, too.

  1. Hi Victoria, Great write and I realize that the Grove plug is a collaboration and I believe that anything is better than nothing to help the environment. I wanted to share these two companies that are earth-friendly and hardly use any plastic. They have great laundry detergent in a paper box and other amazing earth-friendly cleaning supplies.
