Here's How I'm Going Green For 2019 (Plus, FREE Stuff For You!)

alyssa hertzig
I've been slowly but surely trying to be more "green" for the last few years, and I've made some definite progress. Plastic--in particular the single-use plastic--is what really freaks me out, so that's where I've focused a lot of my efforts. I bring a resuable cup (love this one!) to the coffee shop and I use metal straws whenever possible. But after our recent trip to a turtle rescue hospital in the Florida Keys (where nearly all of the turtle patients had stomachs full of plastic garbage--so sad!), I realized I had to step up my game. 

So, one of my resolutions this year is to cut back even further on the amount of single-use plastic we use in our home. To that end, I recently purchased some resuable plastic baggies to cut back on my Ziploc habit, I'm going to make myself be better about toting my resuable bag to the grocery store, and I've also started using these new refillable glass hand soap dispensers from Grove.  (Spoiler alert: I'm going to tell you how to get one for FREE. Details below...)

The dispensers themselves are beautiful--very chic, mimimalist, and appropriate for any decor, and the scents are fantastic (there's Lemon Eucalyptus & Mint and Lavender Thyme as well as Free & Clear, if you prefer unscented.) Intrigued? Well, I've partnered with Grove to give 'em to you for free!

Many of you guys have heard me talk about Grove before, but if you're new here: Grove Collaborative is a site that carries natural products for home and body, and somehow, manages to offer these high-end, normally-pricy brands at very competitive, very affordable prices. (They carry lines like Mrs. Meyer's, Method, Caldrea, Seventh Generation, Acure Organics, Burt's Bees, and many more.)

The other awesome thing about Grove is that, from time to time, they offer these amazing, limited-time free gifts just for trying out the site. And this is a really great one!

(That's what I planned to do when I got my own deal way back when, but I've totally stayed on and I order all of my cleaning products through Grove now.

I have never heard of Grove but I think you have sold me! I am a big supporter of all things organic, especially when it comes to my skincare, so I love the products that they offer. It doesn't hurt that you also get some freebies too!

We're all about going green and doing our best to use less plastic. I'll have to check out this company, sounds amazing!

Terri Beavers said...

I too have been going green more and more lately. I can't even stand the thought of ocean life with plastic in their stomach. I haven't tried this company yet but I'd like to. The price seems great which is always a good thing.

Trying to go as green as possible is always a great choice. People like to do this in different ways and how best suits their family.

I recycle all of plastic containers and have faith that this is being done in a green manner. It is so sad about the turtles but avoiding plastic would be a great idea.

Jeannette said...

I will have to check out this product! I have never heard of it but I am all about going green as I can!

This all sounds great! I need to give them a try for sure. I should probably work on going green.

Aarika Chilson said...

This is great! I've never heard of Grove, but it sounds like a company that would really resonate with my lifestyle. Going Green is a beautiful goal for 2019! I, too, have been working on reducing my use of one-time plastic. Thanks for sharing this review of Grove and discount with us. Wishing you a beautiful 2019!

I bought a metal straw and use it as much as possible to reduce the amount of plastic straws that I use! I love sea turtles (we swam with them in Grand Cayman Island) and I've been trying to find more ways to contribute to keeping them healthier. Thanks for sharing this with us!

That soap dispenser is absolutely beautiful - I love the idea of having something you can just top up when needed and that it is a bit more eco friendly.

We have been transitioning from plastics over the years. It's hard , plastic can be so convenient especially with kids.

Great list of stuff necessary for a proper hygienic environment. Nice brand to recommend with a great packaging and cool soap dispenser.

This is a new soap brand for me to try. I like the idea of being as green as possible. So using products that are easier on the environment and my carbon footprint I am all for.

Brandy Ellen said...

That looks like a great way to go green for 2019. I am sure you're going to do just fine with these products.

We have a lot in common. I'm green and I took am an affiliate with Grove. We should colabrate on something soon.

Grove is such a great place to shop! We try to use the most eco-friendly products as possible in our home. My favorites are Mrs. Meyers soaps!

Going green is the way to go. I would love to try their hand soap. And that soap dispenser is really nice.
