The reality of animal testing on household products is a harsh one. So is the reality of keeping a clean kitchen! For those of you transitioning into a plant-based or vegan diet, I urge you to look beyond the diet and consider the importance of purchasing cruelty-free products for your home and for your skin and body care. (LeapingBunny.org is a great resource for figuring out what companies do or do not test on animals.) With so many great companies putting out cruelty-free products that work just as well as their cruel competitors, there are no more excuses!
For those of you struggling to actually find these cruelty-free products locally, I feel you! I live in a small town where people still don’t even know how to pronounce “vegan.” It’s been wonderful to see some big eco-friendly brands like Method and Seventh Generation reach my local grocery store, but still I find the selection to be minimal, and oftentimes over-priced.
Enter Grove Collaborative, my new favorite website, which allows me to find my favorite cruelty-free products online and have them shipped right to my door at below-retail prices. They’ve got best-selling brands like Mrs. Meyer’s, Seventh Generation, and Method, plus my personal faves like Molly’s Suds (the only laundry detergent I use!), Earthpaste (my #1 toothpaste) and Dr. Bronner’s (hellooo peppermint body wash). I’m psyched to partner up with Grove to offer new customers a few cruelty-free freebies along with free shipping and a trial VIP membership. (Full dicloj: these are affiliate links!)

This walnut scrubber sponge from Grove is perfect for wiping up water, spills, sticky spots — you name it. After I cook, I grab my walnut scrubber and give the stove, sink, and countertops a quick wipe with the soft side. The scour side (actually made from crushed walnuts, what!!) is non-abrasive and tough on burnt-on messes.
Every morning while I’m making my coffee or tea, I empty the dishwasher. I’ve (mostly) trained myself to put glasses straight in the dishwasher instead of letting them pile up in the sink. I usually take an extra second to dry hand-washed items with my Grove kitchen towel. It looks so much nicer than leaving them sitting in the drying rack! Fortunately this towel is HUGE and super absorbent, so I can get through an entire meal’s worth of pots and pans without having to switch towels! Yahoo!
It sounds silly, but I’m way more motivated to clean and do dishes if I have nice supplies that I look forward to using. Mrs. Meyer’s hand soaps and dish soaps are made with essential oils and plant-derived ingredients, so they smell amazing and don’t irritate my skin. Plus, the matching set looks so nice sitting next to my sink! (P.S. Those super cute bamboo brushes in my pics are made by Full Circle and you can find those on Grove too.)
