Grove Collaborative (“Grove”), a leading sustainable consumer products company that creates and curates high-performing and planet-first products, announced today it has been chosen as a 2021 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Winner by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the second consecutive year.
