Honest-ly Good for You!

Recently I was invited to the launch party for Honest Company hosted by MomTrends and got a chance to meet the fabulously gorgeous Jessica Alba, one of the founders of this revolutionary company.  We listened to hear tell the story of her early days as a new parent and it echoed my very own experience.  I became a parent during the early uproar over BPA in bottles and remember the ignited fear within.   I began countless hours of research and at every turn I was more and more horrified.  Not just at the chemicals in everyday products we used but also at the high costs for products that were safer.  “I’ve spent way too many hours researching products and driving around trying to find safer, eco-friendly options for my kids,” exclaimed Jessica Alba, President and founder. “I knew that most people didn’t have that kind of time, nor the means to pay the premium prices. We had to make it easier.”  She teamed up with Christopher Gavigan, former Healthy Child Healthy World CEO; Brian Lee, ShoeDazzle.com founder; and Sean Kane, PriceGrabber.com executive, to launch The Honest Company, an eco-friendly line of family essentials offered through a monthly subscription service at Honest.com.  That’s a pretty amazing team for sure!  Healthy Child Healthy World was my go-to site for the most reliable information and still is.  Meeting Christopher Gavigan was inspiring.  He admits to being asked for product recommendations all the time but it took a LOT of nudging from Jessica Alba to give birth to The Honest Company.  We’re glad he came on board.

Created for parents by parents, The Honest Company founders say they are committed to making safe, sustainable products more convenient, beautiful, and affordable.  While one might be skeptical about signing up for a monthly subscription service, I can barely commit to a magazine subscription, I was pleasantly surprised at the flexibility.  The products are curated into personalized bundles that are automatically shipped every month, and parents can try a FREE Discovery Kit, that includes a sample pack of diapers and wipes, or trial-sized versions of the bath, skin and cleaning products.   If you like the discovery kit, you can continue to receive a customizable kit of FULL size products monthly.  It’s an easy process, and members at Honest.com can purchase a monthly supply of non-toxic stylish diapers competitively priced at less than $20 a week, and can also choose a monthly supply of the body care and home cleaning essentials for under $9 a week.  When it’s put in those numbers, it makes a lot of sense.

I really can embrace the Honest Family Essentials Bundle model where I can select 5 out of 14 currently available products every month.  My needs are always constantly changing, not to mention being a little commitment phobic, having the flexibility to choose the products I need for the next month is awesome!  While I am just transitioning my littlest one out of diapers, I have to say the Honest Diaper Bundle is so gorgeous I even contemplated waiting a bit longer on potty training.  Completely natural & non-toxic – made from chlorine-free, bio-based absorbent, and plant-based materials, these diapers are not only stylish, but also ultra absorbent with a premium fit.

As one of the founders of Trumpeting Media, we love brands that have a charitable arm, doing some Social Good.  I was thrilled to hear that a portion of every dollar Honest Company earns goes to their non-profit partner Baby2Baby. This worthy nonprofit supplies local families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for children up to age four.  We love it!

In these days where BUSY doesn’t even begin to describe a parent’s typical day, convenience and value speaks to us.  We welcome The Honest Company to make every parent’s life a little more manageable.

    WHAT KIND OF SELF PROCLAIMED ENVIRONMENTALIST WOULD EVEN USE PLASTIC DIAPERS. THIS IS ALBA’S FUTILE ATTEMPT TO CONTINUE HER GREEDY LIFE. SHE IS A HAS BEEN, AND NOTHING MORE THAN A SEXUALLY EXPLOITED WOMAN WHO USED HER BODY TO PROFIT AND NOW SHE CAN NOT ERASE HER PAST THAT HAUNTS HER. EVERY MALE FRIEND I KNOW HAS AN ASSORTMENT OF PICS OF HER AND MASTURBATES TO THEM. SO , TOO ME, SHE IS NASTY FOR CHOOSING THAT LIFESTYLE ALL FOR THE ALL MIGHTY DOLLAR. SHE HAS TWO DAUGHTERS, WILL THEY BE WH*RING THEMSELVES OUT FOR MONEY WHEN THEY ARE OF LEGAL AGE AS MAMA TAUGHT THEM? I HOPE NOT.

    MAMA ALBA IS EXPLOITING HER KIDS EVERYDAY SHE PIMPS THEM OUT TO THE MEDIA, PAPS AND THE PUBLIC.

    ALBA IS DISHONEST AND SHOULD CHANGE THE NAME OF HER OVER-PRICED BULL-SH*T COMPANY.

    HYPOCRITES ARE WEAK LINKS IN SOCIETY, SHE COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT, SHE IS A MOODY, FROWNING WOMAN AND OVER-EXPOSED AND TALENT-LESS.

    SHE CAN KEEP HER CRAPPY PLASTIC DIAPERS WHICH ARE HORRIBLE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

    I feel that a true environmentalist would not be “slugging” plastic diapers as they are terrible for the Earth. It is a travesty that people will sell these and market them as “healthy” and “better “, simply not true. I also feel these products are pricey and not worth it. Go online, there are far more better products with cheaper prices. She is using her fame and fortune to profit even further off of broke Americans.

    DIS-HONEST Company. Don’t buy these ridiculously expensive products just because a ex-actress/pin up model sells them, that IS the scam, folks! Why support the rich to make the richer? That would be an asinine choice. I don’t buy things based on if a woman is “pretty and popular”.

    Bottom line is, I spent 3 weeks online and found excellent, healthier quality products for way cheaper…do the math…duh!

    Holy Hater messages! I’m sorry but the whole cloth diaper thing was not for me. I had no time for anything let alone sorting and separately washing diapers. I couldn’t even imagine sorting the poopy ones. I’d feel better if I used more environmentally conscience diapers if I could.
