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.
