If you just want the computername, there's no reason to use Get-ChildItem.

It's a key / value list, it's just presented like a drive. You can access elements explicitly by name:
Get-ChildItem env:\ComputerName

Or using wildcards:
Get-ChildItem env:\comp*

Why do you need to use grep on environment variables?
