đŸŒ± Why Drew Barrymore joined Grove Collaborative as a Sustainability Advocate

"It's gotta lead with optimism. It's gotta lead with hope." In this engaging conversation with Fast Company, actress-entrepreneur-talk-show host Drew Barrymore shares her philosophy for sustainability solutions. She explains how she first committed to the cause (thanks to a friend you'll recognize as one of her iconic costars) and why she teamed up with Grove Collaborative—the eco-oriented home goods brand and e-commerce retailer that is one of Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies of 2022. Barrymore is now Grove's global brand and sustainability advocate, and her passion will lead you to be a convert in ditching plastic as well (if you aren't already).
