The Gro Story
The Gro Company is the result of two parents battle to get their baby to sleep at night. Practially unheard of in the UK, an Austrian sister-in-law introduced them to baby sleep bags, and after amazing 12- hour slumber, the Grobag was born.
We carried out extensive research for 6 months before selling our first Grobag. This included a steep learning curve in relation to safety standards, overseas manufacturing, import and export, mail-order catalogue production, logistics, manufacturing and product design.
Wanting to spread the word to other sleep deprived parents, our founders gave themselves a target of 10 years to get the UK from 0% to 80% baby sleeping bag usage, but managed it in a mere 5.
Our research brought us into contact with The Lullaby Trust (formally FSID), the UK's leading SIDs research charity. We have worked with closely with The Lullaby Trust since 2000 and donated almost 1 million pounds towards safer sleep research.
We believe in Social Responsibility
The Gro Company has always strived to ‘Do the Right thing’ whether it be through our robust ethical sourcing practices or excellent customer service. Not only do we have a commitment to safer sleep, but we strive to better the lives of parents and children alike.
Formed in 1971, The Lullaby Trust is the leading UK charity dedicated to the research and prevention of SIDS. The Gro Company have been working with The Lullaby Trust since its very beginning. During a partnership spanning over 17 years, The Gro Company have made a significant contribution to the vital work done by The Lullaby Trust, making a positive difference to the lives of thousands of families across the UK.
Friends of Buburi is run by four British nurses – Jo, Sallie, Noreen and Jackie, and provides financial and educational support to the Buburi Community Health Clinic. The money donated by The Gro Company has directly funded the building of the Buburi Community Health Clinic, which provides ante-natal care as well as treatment for malaria and HIV to families who otherwise would not be able to access life saving care.
Kidsafe Australia and The Gro Company have committed to working in partnership over the next few years to promote safe infant sleeping and help to reduce SIDS and fatal sleeping accidents in Australia.
Funds from the sale of Grobags are donated to Kidsafe Australia to support safer sleep for all babies.
