We highlight forward-thinking environmental practices and flag known risky commodities and sourcing geographies.
Sustainability is our purpose and our mission. And we’ll be the first to admit we’re not perfect. But at Hive, we value progress over perfection. We’re committed to getting better, and encouraging our brands and customers to do the same. Making sustainable shopping a mainstream habit is going to take all of us, so we invite you to join the Hive and help us build a healthier planet, one grocery haul at a time.
We call our vetting criteria the Hive Five™. Each of our brands is evaluated against these rigorous standards so that we can find the best of the best in each category.
Through the Hive Five™, we do the hard work for you, from sourcing to ingredients to taste to ensure that customers don’t have to read every label and research every brand.
Our standards are designed so shoppers can trust that every single product on our site has been thoroughly evaluated for overall sustainability at every level.
