“This is a great idea. It’ll be a long road, but if you do it this will be a fantastic model,” said Jon Silverman, the Senior Vice President of Product for Grove Collaborative. With that encouragement, we were on our way to building the world’s first refillable medicine system.

How Do We Measure Success With Grove?
With Grove, we want to eliminate 1,000,000 lbs of medicine plastic from the environment. With each purchase of a Cabinet product, you can reduce up to 1 pound of plastic—so, we’ve got some major work to do!
Partnering with Grove means introducing sustainable healthcare and offering sustainable medicine to as many people as possible. Through this process, we hope to learn alongside Grove about building better sustainable healthcare products and new products in the future.
