When someone you admire joins a start up company, you take notice. Janelle Sorensen was the chief communications oficer at Healthy Child Healthy World. She is a “seasoned environmental health advocate”. For her to join this new company and thus give it her endorsement, it has to be authentically green and safe!
Founded by actress Jessica Alba and former CEO of Healthy Child Healthy World Christopher Gavigan, The Honest Company offers a wide range of non-toxic and eco-friendly products for your family. From diapers to laundry detergent, you can trust The Honest Company, as their name implies.
Our vision of health & sustainability is to:
- Reduce the ubiquitous presence of toxic chemicals in our our natural environment (air, soil, oceans, etc), man-made environments (homes, schools, offices) and our personal environments (industrial pollution inside our own bodies);
- Protect natural resources by minimizing waste and maximizing use/re-use;
- Support peace, security, and social justice; and,
- Promote diversity and productivity through all facets of life – from cultural to ecological.
We are committed to operating with integrity & transparency, and with humble honesty, as we strive to always create better, do better, and be better.
We were sent the following products to try:
- honest laundry detergent
- honest shampoo & body wash
- honest healing balm
- honest face & body lotion
- honest hand soap
- honest diapers bundle
- honest wipes
- honest sunscreen
- honest body oil
- honest conditioner
These products are “Honestly FREE of: phthalates, SLS/SLES, synthetic perfume, glycol, enzymes, dyes, phosphates, 1,4-dioxane, chlorine, DEA, formaldehyde, petrochemicals and caustics”.
The diapers are plant-based disposables. My daughter wondered why anyone would want to put diapers on their child decorated with skulls and cross bones, and I clearly advocate for cloth diapers. Other than that, I have no complaints about any of these products!
The Honest Company does offer free trials of their products so that you can try them out yourself! You can also sign up for a monthly subscription, which you can even personalize.
I am really excited about these products and company! I hope they will be available soon in local stores.
I always try to support companies where I have some sort of personal connection with the people behind the scenes that I know I can trust. Thank you Honest Company for coming into our lives!
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
