Although it’s probably not Earth Day when you’re reading this, it happens to be Earth day as I’m writing this.
This year we are celebrating our home at home .
And since we are all spending more time at home, I’ve become a little more aware of everything we are using, and buying and how changing a few things can make a big difference.
We’ve made a few sustainable swaps recently, some by choice, others well, because paper towels are scarce!
A few ways we’ve limited what goes in and out:
Trading out paper towels for flour sack towels, woven dish cloths and sponges.
Using silicone straws instead of paper straws. Bonus, these straws come with a cute little bristle cleaner and their own storage bag. Not to mention, they’re PINK!
I’m also loving these cleaner concentrates that come in two delicious scents, I’m using orange rosemary. Instead of paying to have a bunch of water and a tiny percentage of cleaner to be shipped all over the place, I’m just paying for the main ingredients and I add water and the concentrate to a cute spray bottle here at home.
Right now you can make some simple sustainable swaps and receive a free kit with your first purchase from Grove Collaborative.
The concentrates, the pretty spray bottles, the pink enamel caddy, the flour sacks–even the pink straws are available from Grove!
One of my favorite parts of being a Grove customer is using the Grove app.
I’ve used the Grove app for a long time, but now I rely on it. I set it up so Grove notifies me when hand sanitizer and paper towels come back in stock. I was able to order hand sanitizer today!
As a Grove member, you can set up auto shipments or turn that feature off and only get a shipment when you manually hit the Ship Now button.
