If you’re a frequent reader of The Tree Kisser, you know I’ve recently become a huge fan of Grove Collaborative (and all the free gift sets they give out!). I initially came across Grove while looking for a good (and affordable!) supplier of non-toxic, cruelty-free cleaning products, but I’ve since found so many other reasons to love them! This morning I discovered yet another reason to support Grove, because they just launched Seedling, their new in-house brand of sustainably grown, planet-friendly AND budget-friendly, “tree-free” paper products!
Did you know the United States alone kills 94,000 trees EVERY day just to produce the paper towels, tissues, and toilet paper we go through? We’re basically destroying the planet to clean up our messes. Yes, it’s always preferable to clean with reusable cloth towels (which Grove does sell!), but there are plenty of scenarios in which they just aren’t practical or sanitary. For example, I have four rescue dogs at home, one of whom was just diagnosed with diabetes. If you’ve ever lived with a newly diabetic dog before, you know they come along with increased potty mess. I’ll spare you the details, but my point is this: we’ve been going through a LOT of paper towels recently.
I always feel guilty (as I should) when purchasing traditional paper products for my home, but that’s all about to change thanks to Seedling by Grove!
Here’s what I’m loving about these new Tree-Free paper products:
- Seedling “Tree-Free” paper products are made with bamboo and sugarcane, grasses that are far easier to grow and replant than trees. Bamboo takes only three months to regrow, whereas trees commonly killed for paper can take up to 20 years to reach maturity!
- Bamboo also absorbs five times more CO2 than trees are capable of, meaning it’s cleaning our air while it grows!
A portion of every Seedling purchase goes to the Arbor Day Foundation to plant trees across the United States. For every 50 rolls sold, Grove will cover the cost of planting one tree. With our support, they hope to plant 100,000 trees in the first year!
- The plastic used in packaging some Seedling products is fully recyclable, and can also serve as a liner for small recycling bins!
To ensure that these planet-friendly products make their way into as many homes as possible, Grove has made sure the quality is as exceptional as the sustainability! These new tree-free paper products are all made with two-ply construction to ensure strength and softness. They’ve also been tested to ensure that they are safe for all septic tanks. Basically, there’s zero sacrifice compared to the paper products you’re currently using.
And here’s the best part (the free gifts!):
Through this link, Grove Collaborative is currently hosting an amazing “back to school” offer! With your first order of $20 or more, you’ll receive a free cruelty-free, non-toxic cleaning set featuring full sizes of:
- Mrs. Meyer’s Hand Soap
- Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap
- Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Surface Spray
- Grove Hand Sanitizer Spray
- Grove Walnut Scrubber Sponges
- (they often throw in one more bonus gift, but that changes from time to time)
Conveniently, the 1 Month Supply of Tree-Free Paper currently starts at $24.95, meaning you can order that intro pack and automatically qualify for the free cleaning set! What I’m saying is, for only $24.95, you’ll receive a month supply of Tree-Free Paper Products (12 rolls of Bath Tissue, 4 rolls of Paper Towels, 2 boxes of Facial Tissue, 1 set of Pocket Tissues, and 250 Napkins) AND $30+ worth of cruelty-free, non-toxic cleaning supplies! It’s pretty much the best deal ever.
So what are you waiting for? Hop on over to Grove Collaborative’s site and hook yourself up with some planet-friendly, animal-friendly, AND budget-friendly household products.

Grove Collaborative does not pay me to gush about them, but I *do* receive a commission if you place an order. This helps me keep the site up and running and, more importantly, puts food in the mouths of my four rescue pups!
