Good morning and happy Monday ya’ll! I am really digging all the switching to safer that ya’ll are pushing forward with during Spring. I know that most of us use Spring as an excuse to clean out our closets, declutter, organize, deep clean and change out things that we want to change. One of the things that I’ve loved helping ya’ll do is switch out your home, beauty and personal care products. I know this can be an overwhelming place to start and I really do commend you for making this a BIG step in changing to a non toxic lifestyle. Finding ways to make this transition easier really does go along way and one of the ways I’ve found most helpful is Grove Collaborative.
Grove Collaborative is a customizable auto-shipment service that delivers all of those products directly to your door! Their aim is to make living a healthy lifestyle easy and accessible for you and your family. I use their website once if not twice a month to order products for my family. I will say that all though their standards are higher than others, there are still some products that does have “fragrance” in the ingredients but you can check that on every product page and decide for yourself if you want to order. I don’t use the brands Mrs. Myers and Method because they include “fragrance.”
Keep in mind, your shipments are 100% customizable, and you have complete control over what products you get and when you want to receive them. Orders can be modified as well as postponed without penalty, and when you postpone an order, you are moving your next scheduled shipment, so you won’t receive another one until that date! I set mine up to come out once a month but I normally go in and manually press “SHIP” when I put all my things into the cart that I need. You can read more about my favorite Grove products by clicking here. I did a roundup of the ones we use and love and I also want to share a few new things that I’ve found.
Since Scarlet Reese is still in pull ups, I always stock up on her non toxic favorites here. The Seventh Generation pull ups are the best non leaking brand I have found that are soft. This is also the best place to buy because of bang for your buck. The kids are also really obsessed with band aids. I guess we’re just at this new place of life where they want band aids all the time… I found this non toxic brand on Grove and they love them. I also found these bamboo soap holders and SWEAR by them. They are open on the bottom so it doesn’t hold water and let’s your soap bars last longer. This is super helpful for my charcoal bar and Derrek’s charcoal body bar.
When you have a chance, go check out the Grove website. You will quickly fall in love with all that they have to offer (which is a LOT) if you get overwhelmed then just send me a message and I would love to help. I am also going to share a discount code for $10 off your first order. This is super helpful for when you eat to try a few things when you’re just starting out. CLICK HERE FOR $10 OFF!
