We all want effective, household products to clean and maintain our living spaces. A lot of us also want to be more environmentally conscious, ideally merging both of those needs. If you've struggled to find eco-friendly products that actually work and are affordable, let Drew Barrymore guide your shopping. She explained, "I've spent years looking for easy, real solutions for a more earth-friendly lifestyle at home for my family and the world around me."

That's why she's the perfect person to serve as Grove Collaborative's Global Brand + Sustainability Advocate. She even invested in the company to help the brand work toward a plastic-free future. The daytime talk show host explained, "I have been a fan of Grove products since I discovered their starter kit and am inspired by their goal of being 100% plastic-free by 2025. I'm thrilled to join the Grove team so that we can make it easier for everyone to make the important switch to more sustainable products and fight the plastic crisis our world is facing."

Drew and Grove Collaborative teamed up for a new ad campaign focused on wish-cycling, which is when someone puts something in the recycling bin wishing and hoping it gets recycled when in reality, only 9% of the plastic we consume ever gets recycled. That cycle stops with Grove Collaborative's ever-growing line of super-sustainable home essentials and personal care products, which are free from single-use plastic. 

Being more sustainably-minded doesn't have to be a major overhaul of your current routine. Instead, you can make some eco-friendly swaps for your favorite household products. Check out Drew's eco-friendly favorites below.

Drew Barrymore's Beautiful Kitchenware Line Debuts New Mixer Collection and Colorway

Grove Collaborative Laundry Sheets- 32 Sheets

Drew is "obsessed" with these. Say goodbye to measuring messy liquid detergent and using those plastic pods. T hese laundry sheets instantly dissolve to remove tough stains as you wash. They are plastic-free and there are three refreshing scents to choose from.

Grove Collaborative Wool Dryer Balls- Lasts for 1,000 Laundry Loads

These dryer balls help eliminate wrinkles and soften fabrics while your clothes dry. They are hypoallergenic, which isn't usually the case for liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets. These dryer balls last for 1,000 loads and they help your laundry dry quicker. They are 100% biodegradable.


Grove Collaborative Silicone Straws- Set of 4

Drew is a "big straw person," but she doesn't use plastic straws. Instead, she enjoys these reusable silicone straws, which are flexible, durable, and dishwasher safe. You can use them for hot and cold beverages. The 4-straw set also includes a cleaning brush and a cotton carrying case. 

Grove Collaborative Hydrating Hand Soap Refill- Hope In Bloom

Drew loves this limited edition scent! This floral scented soap is super hydrating and it is infused with aloe to give you softer hands. You can use the soap with the dispenser that Drew also recommended.  

Grove Collaborative Ultimate Dish Soap Refill- Hope in Bloom

You can get another one of those soap dispensers with this Grove Collaborative dish soap in that same limited edition scent that Drew adores. 

Grove Collaborative European Dish Cloths- Set of 2

These machine-washable dish cloths are a great replacement for sponges and paper towels.
