img_6213I do not know anyone who would turn down a convenient service.

Imagine not having to run to the grocery store to get your household items.

No dragging yourself out of bed to do a week-end chore, putting on something that does not look like pajamas (or they could because I have seen some peeps out and about in their PJs…no judgement here!), getting the car out, and then dealing with parking as other families, who are doing exactly the same thing as you, are racing to get the most convenient spots.

I really would not rather do that.

I really would rather find a delivery service that ships the items to me at minuscule price, or better yet offer it for free.

Now if I find one that only sells the non-toxic, natural yet very effective, preferably organic variety of household cleaners and body care from different manufacturers, then I am completely sold!

But is there such a thing?

I subscribe to the Honest Company, and while I am satisfied with their array, I do prefer trying out different brands, who are perhaps much better in their formulations and offer lower pricing.

I have heard of Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Seventh Generation, Acure, Method, and many others. But in order to try them out I would have to search in the different stores that distribute their products. Couldn’t there just be a one-stop shop?

Turns out there is and the company is actually based in the bay area!

Meet Grove Collaborative.

I stumbled upon this company while reading another’s blogger’s review of Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Spring line. The scent was Peony, which happens to be my favorite flower. I was intrigued by the raving review and decided to click her link. This took me to a site called ‘Grove Collective’. And from there I realized it was exactly the online household shop I was looking for!

Now before I got too excited, I decided to check out the prices. Will they charge a premium or are they comparable to the what is offered at my neighborhood mart. Turns out it’s the latter and sometimes it is even cheaper! And as far as the shipping fee it is a standard $2.99 no matter how many items you buy! In fact, they carbon offset 100% of the shipments. If you are curious what this means, carbon offset is an extra selection made to a shipper that instructs them to offset the emissions of the shipment’s transport. Now I am impressed!

Because I am a discerning shopper and better educated on the effects of harsh toxic ingredients that commonly found in household and beauty care products, I was particularly pleased that Grove Collaborative sells products from companies who will not use the following harmful chemicals: ammonia, chlorine, formaldehyde, glycol ethers, phthalates, ticlosan, and parabens.

With that in mind I decided to browse and add in my shopping cart.

I gave Method, Acure Skincare, Dr. Bronner’s, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Seventh Generation, and even Grove Collaborative‘s own line a try.

I bought laundry detergent, dish soap, steel appliance cleaner, multi-purpose disinfectants, granite cleaners, wood floor squirts, hand soap, dishwasher tablets, multi-surface cleaner, castile soap, wood cleaner, lip balms, and scented candles.

I did a quick calculation. For the price I paid I probably saved 15% off the retail prices. And for the convenience and saving me time that is absolutely priceless!

Within a few days of my order I received my shipment. Everything was intact, no spills, and no broken bottles. I did notice the Grove Collaborative scented soy candle they sent me was the ‘Blood Orange’ scent, whereas I ordered the ‘Vanilla Bean + Sandlewood’. I decided to give their customer service a try.

I wrote an email to their support line and described the mishap in the candles. They replied to my inquiry within a day. They apologized for the inconvenience, informed me that the correct candle scent was on its way, and offered that I keep the wrong ‘Blood Orange’. Wow! That is superb!

Now I am busy trying out the products. If I like them I can always request some of them to be auto-ship to me on a schedule. If I want to try more products, then I have the option to do that too. I control the shipment date. And if I forget I will get a reminder. Very cool!

So far I am loving the Grove Collaborative service. I hope they will always offer below retail-prices and their shipping fee remains the same. And I also hope their company will grow, continue their great customer service, and offer more safe and effective household and body care products. I really want them to succeed because they appear to be a great company with a positive mission to care about health and environmental impact.

    OMG I would LOVE this. I am always on the lookout for great products like these – well, I already love Seventh Gen, but would love to try some of these others.

  2. Some of these products I have never heard of until now. I would love to give them a try though. Sometimes we really have to read product labels to make sure we’re not getting any of those harmful chemicals in our homes.

    • Stylish+Geek says:

      I’m with you on this! Grove Collaborative carries a lot of brands I did not know about and some I do know. I like it when you click on each product they are completely transparent on the ingredients list.

  3. Kait says:

    I have never heard of half of these products, but I’m so glad you shared them! Mrs. Meyer’s is one of my favorite brands, so I’m hoping I will love all of these too 🙂

  4. These are some great items. I love Moroccan Argan Oil. I got some last year when we went to Marrakesh! It is the best.

  5. I’m a huge fan of Mrs. Meyer’s, Acure and Dr. Bronners and Method products. Can’t wait to check out Grove Collective. I’m so impressed how well the packaged the products.

    • Stylish+Geek says:

      Oh that’s great to know! I’m trying out these brands for the first time, although I have used Method in the past. I am UBER excited about Dr. Bronners!

  6. Vicky says:

  7. Sign me up! I love finding services that make my life easier as well! Grove Collaborative sounds like a really good service!

    • Stylish+Geek says:

      They are a great service and truth be told I found them, they didn’t find me. Out of sheer pleasure of my experience that spawned me to blog about them!

  8. Ana De Jesus says:

    A 15% save is fantastic! I like that it includes products that do not have harmful ingredients like parabens!

  9. I love these less harmful lines of products. I really like free shipping though. Although I live in a area with very high taxes, so sometimes it is less expensive for me to pay for shipping.

    • Stylish+Geek says:

      I know how you feel. What I like is the fact that the shipping is a flat rate of $2.99 no matter how many products, no matter how heavy, and they include carbon offset shipping which is making good with our environment.

  10. Looks like a fantastic company! You had my a peony scented . . . I am going to check them out right now.

  11. Liz Mays says:

    This sounds like a wonderful way to get some worry-free cleaning supplies and body care products. It’s good to know the customer service was helpful!

  12. momssmallvictories says:

    Wow, I’m going to have to check this out. I love Method and Mrs. Meyer’s products and need to check out their makeup and personal care items. looks great! Thanks for sharing, excited to explore and try it out!

  13. Elizabeth O. says:

    They have interesting products that I want to try! Thanks for sharing your experience with this company, it’s their good customer service that will make them successful in such a business. Awesome!

  14. This is a lot of great information! I had never heard of carbon offset and will be researching that for myself. That seems like a very reasonable price to have it added to the shipping.

  15. thekusilife says:

    It is so amazing to me that we allow all these products to be manufactured and sold here in the US when we know how harmful they are. Awesome you found such a fantastic company to replace those harmful cleaners! Peonies? I want in on that!

  16. Kiwi says:

    I would give Grove collaborative a try. I am all for natural products so it peaked my interest!

  17. I’ve been using Method before and glad to see it here. I’d like to try the other products here, thanks for the detailed descriptions with what they are!

  24. lastchance3 says:

    Wow! Do they ship all over the country?! Or is it bay area only?

  25. wow what a great service.I am wondering if its available also in UK or no

  26. RonRon says:

    I wanna try Grove Collaborative too. Such an amazing service for sure.

  27. I would not mind trying out these products. I have never heard of them before or remember hearing about them. I will be checking them out and see if they are available in my area.

  28. Ooh, I need this in my life! I like how they tape all the products to keep them from leaking too.

  29. Eileen xo says:

    This looks like a great service. You are the second person who has a lot of good things to say about their service. I love that they responded to the candle issue so quickly and let you keep the incorrect scented candle so you didn’t need to make an extra trip to the post office.

  30. Lisa Rios says:

    Except for the Meyer’s most of these products are so new for me, but I always love trying out new products that are really worth enough. I would love that Argan Oil from Acure & that Lip from Grove right away.

  31. So much fun shopping online. But if you can’t hold your cravings, you might end empty pocket. ahaha

  32. As someone who also only uses organic/natural products I am so happy I found your post! I’d never heard of this service but WOW how awesome! I’ll for sure be checking them out!

    • Stylish+Geek says:
