Our impact


Grounded is focused on having a positive impact on the world and that extends well beyond just replacing plastics.
Design for circularity

Design for circularity

All of Grounded's products have a dedicated end-of-life stream and incorporate the maximum amount of plant-based, renewable or recycled materials. We're still a way off from being perfect - but we're working to get there.
Measuring and eliminating carbon footprint

Measuring and eliminating carbon footprint

We design products that naturally have a lower carbon footprint than fossil fuel alternatives but most materials and manufacturing process still have a carbon footprint. Our proprietary impact calculator gives us an unmatched ability to model and understand and offset this carbon footprint.
Tackling the ocean plastic problem at the source

Tackling the ocean plastic problem at the source

The majority of plastic waste in our oceans comes from a handful of river systems in developing countries. Grounded supports collection and recycling depots in Indonesia and the Philippines, and for every item of packaging that we produce we remove the equivalent amount of plastic trash from the ocean. Not only that but we provide our customers with measurable, audited data to support their contribution.
Social impact throughout the supply chain

Social impact throughout the supply chain

As a certified B Corp, Grounded meets the highest standards of social and environmental performance. We undertake regular audits to ensure our manufacturing partners meet strict criteria for worker welfare and safety. Our collection depots provide opportunities for employment and education in developing economies.
