Company Description

In March, Grove Collaborative became the first and only plastic-neutral retailer in the world committed to becoming 100 percent plastic-free by 2025. The company recently released a full line of plastic-free products as a part of its Beyond Plastic cleaning initiative. In October, it also launched personal care brand Peach, which offers waterless, plastic-free, and effective plant-based solutions. In under a year, Peach is expected to save an estimated 100,000 pounds of plastic that would otherwise enter the environment. The company's subscription model allows households to easily make a permanent shift to less harmful chemicals and packaging.

Company Description

The average consumer buys 68 items of clothing per year, but wears each item only an average of seven times before it is discarded--and 60 percent of discarded garments end up in incinerators or landfills within one year. This year, Cuyana has stayed true to its mission of minimizing the impact of the fashion industry on the environment by creating staple apparel pieces that consumers value and wear longer. This female-led company also continues to support global craftsmanship by honoring its production commitments to small factories around the world, even amid the pandemic. The company recently launched the Zero Waste collection program, in which scraps from its production supply chain are used to create new products.
