Honestly Adorable

Our house is what you might call light green. Actually, our house is literally a light mossy green color but what I meant is we are light green when it comes to being ecofriendly, reducing our impact on the planet and staying away from harsh chemicals. It’s important to me to make responsible decisions about what we put in and on our bodies, but as a busy mom with a limited budget some things get ranked higher than others. On one hand, it’s easy to choose household cleaning products that are all-natural and eco-conscious, especially because I know someone is going to put their mouth on every single surface in my house at some point. On the other hand, if my kids want to eat their weight in clementines and I can’t find organically grown clementines, that’s not a fight I’m willing to have. I recycle every recyclable that passes through my door but I’m not willing to totally give up paper towels. Light green.

One of my biggest failures in the ecofriendly department was cloth diapering, something I’m still disappointed I couldn’t commit to. Caroline has been fighting a diaper rash for a week or so now and part of me thinks our disposables are to blame. There’s all kinds of gross stuff in those diapers (and I mean BEFORE my kid poops in them). So I was really excited to give The Honest Company’s natural, biodegradable, chlorine-free diapers a try – and not just because their prints are super adorable.

The Honest Company sent me several diapers and a pack of wipes for Caroline. We both appreciate the bright, fresh packaging. I loved how thick and effective the wipes are. Despite some seriously hard play time and wearing them overnight, we never had a single leak or blow out. I can definitely say I am a convert.

I have a hard time committing to things (ask my husband how many different Christmas cards I made him look at before I picked one) so I love that The Honest Company offers a free trial. I also love that you can buy their products a la carte as well as making your life easier by signing up for a subscription. Options are great.

Besides their commitment to providing safe, green, non-toxic, eco-conscious products, The Honest Company is also committed to doing social good. For every product they sell they donate money, time, effort and products to organizations providing assistance to families in need. Right now they’re partnered with Baby2Baby, who provide essential baby clothing and gear to families who couldn’t afford them on their own. Supporting a company so committed to being a force for good makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

The Honest Company was started by a mom and a dad who, like many modern parents, were increasingly worried about products made with questionable chemical ingredients. But the alternatives they found were often expensive, inaccessible, bland, or ineffective. In response to this clear need for something better, they created The Honest Company to ensure that parents (or anyone for that matter!) could easily find natural and non-toxic eco-friendly products that are beautiful, effective, and affordable. From customized product bundles to diapers and wipes to an ever-expanding line of cleaning and personal care products, you can find everything you need at Honest.com and have it delivered directly to your front door.

    I haven’t tried the diapers because shockingly I am actually sticking with the cloth (insane!) but I love the a Honest Company body products! The shampoo is my favorite for the girls hair and the lotion just smells fantastic!

    They did a Groupon-esque thing on one of those sites a few weeks ago, I think it was $25 for $50 of stuff, so keep an eye out! I almost bought it just to try out their cleaning products but decided I’d hold off til I need some diapers (years away!)

      Oooooh I WISH I had gotten in on that. You could always buy the diapers now and just admire them for a few years. They have a print with tiny anchors. TINY ANCHORS!

        Ooh, that might be enough to convince my BFF to have a second baby, her little guy just turned 2 and she’s finally back in her skinny pants and unsure of #2. Tiny anchors would totally push her over the edge!!!

    I was a cloth diaper failure too! If we have baby #3 I’m willing to try it again because I really really wanted it to work.

    p.s. Caroline is looking so grown up! Her hair is getting longer!

      I kept all of mine. I can’t bring myself to sell/give them away when I keep telling myself I’ll try again next time.

    “Cutie booty” as we say in our house. We did cloth, but only at home. So we were “light” cloth diaper’ers. I also just wanted to say I love your “light green” attitude. We drive super fuel efficient cars, and limit the amount we consume plastic with things like cloth snack bags, but I can not give up individual packaged chips. (I am all like, I pack lunch everyday, and commute a million miles, I totally deserve my 100 cal pack of baked whatever.) Or we drink out of stainless steel water bottles and bring our coffee mugs everywhere, but my god I need kleenex – like the kind in the cardboard box. The expensive kind. Yup, I am borrowing your phrase – we are “light green”.
