I’m a fan of anything that makes my life easier, or cheaper, which is why I’m a huge fan of the household goods subscription service Grove Collaborative. Today I’m sharing a special offer so you can try ePantry for yourself at a big discount plus get a free product.
Grove is similar to Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program (which I love), but focuses on high-quality, eco-friendly household goods. It’s a high-touch San Francisco-based startup that prides itself on amazing customer service and the fact that nearly half its staff are female, which is a big deal in Silicon Valley.
They offer discounted prices on high quality, environmentally-friendly brands like Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Method, Yes to Carrots, Tom’s of Maine, Seventh Generation, and more.
We’ve received a monthly box from ePantry since we first signed up last October, and they’ve been an absolute delight to do business with. I’ve been so impressed at the quality and consistency of their products, the helpfulness of their staff, and by just how darn easy and pleasant the whole process is. (If I realize we need to order, say, more baby shampoo, my 8-year-old knows how to add that to our next shipment. It’s that easy.)
I made an accidental discovery around the time of our second or third shipment: my kids like getting to choose which products and scents we use in our home, and if they get to choose, they’re much more likely to be enthusiastic about cleaning. This was a revelation.
Now if my kids want to try a cleaning product from Grove, I’m on board. If they choose the products, they will scrub floors (with Method’s almond-scented cleaner), wash dishes (they love the pop-up sponges), and clean windows (with glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth). They do a pretty good job, and they never get sneezing fits like they used to back in our days of using Target’s non-environmentally-friendly products.
Grove is also fun to interact with (and I don’t say that a lot). Like their chat feature: many businesses have live chat help, but how many give you a discount for answering questions like “what’s on your summer reading list?”
After six months of using their service, I definitely have my favorite items: we always order Method foaming hand soap, Method hardwood floor cleaner, Seventh Generation’s natural laundry detergent powder (gentle enough for my girls with ultra-sensitive skin), Yes to Carrots baby shampoo (I use it for my hand washables), Method Smarty dish tabs, and ePantry’s Grove Collaborative soy candles.
Candles are part of my morning ritual—I always light one when I sit down to write in the morning—and I love Grove’s candles. They’re 100% pure soy wax plus essential oils, which means they burn clean, unlike the more common paraffin candles. (I was dismayed when I realized a few years ago that my old favorite brand’s candles released toxins when burned. Google it.)
ePantry’s Grove Collaborative candles are my favorite: the 8 ounce candles burn for 70 hours, come in adorable reusable mason jars, and are available in 4 scents. (I like the eucalyptus + spearmint for the kitchen, and blood orange for my office.)
If you’ve never tried Grove, place your first order and receive these 4 items for free, through March 22:
