Once I had children, my outlook on life changed on certain aspects of the lifestyle that the Husband and I lived. One of the big factors that I had to really take a step back and look at was the cleaning products that I used in my home. I had to re-evaluate whether I wanted my sweet kidlets exposed to the countless chemicals found in the supplies I used to achieve a clean home, or if I wanted to do some searching for greener products that were cost effective and less harsh. I’m thrilled today that I get to share how I’m making the switch to an Honest bathroom!
The Honest Company was founded 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.
Honest is a Certified B Corporation. Which means they are dedicated to making a profound social difference, safeguarding people and the planet, and making efforts to a be better business. They are very proud to be an active member of the B Corp community of like-minded organizations, because they believe that together, they can make it better.
Also, with every purchase you make, The Honest Company donates time, money, and product to their current charitable partner Baby2Baby.org. This worthy non-profit supplies families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for children up to age 12. I love a company that knows how to give back!
The Honest Company products can all be found online at Honest.com. I love how user-friendly and easy-to-navigate their site is. I was able to easily locate the products that I was looking for and place my order within minutes. One of my favorite parts: the cleaning supplies bundle. Who wouldn’t love getting a discount for purchasing the supplies you use most as a package deal?!
Because I’m all about being honest with you, my treasured readers, and because I’m writing about The Honest Company, I’m going to share my real experience with you.
When I initially ordered my cleaning supplies and bathroom toiletries, I received a shipping notice promptly. After a few days, I began to wonder what had happened to my order. After tracking my package, I saw that it had been damaged in transit and returned to The Honest Company. Within 24 hours of notifying them, I already had a replacement package on its way to me, no questions asked. When the second package did arrive, the Husband and I found that two of the products had opened during shipment. Again, The Honest Company stepped right up to the plate with excellent Customer Service. They replaced my damaged items, sent additional product to make up for the hassle, and overnighted the shipment to my home.
I can honestly say that I was thoroughly impressed with the quickness, efficiency, and kindness in which my order(s) were handled.
Once I had my products in hand, Luke and I (mostly Luke) set to work cleaning our bathrooms and making the switch. He’s been itching to help me clean for a long time now and for the first time, I felt like I could let him help without worrying about what he was touching or being exposed to. We used the Honest Bathroom Cleaner and the Honest Toilet Cleaner to get our scrub on. The best part was the smell. No icky chemical smell!
Luke and I also switched out the toiletry items too. We added new Honest Hand Soap and Honest Face & Body Lotion. As a girl who loves design at heart and cringes at ugly fonts (Just say no to Papyrus!), I have to say too that I totally adore the packaging of each of The Honest Company’s products. They are not only safe and sustainable, but beautiful, fresh, and fun too.
Don’t let all my fancy bathroom cleaning talk fool you, though. The Honest Company also has a whole line of products just for babies. They’ve created a line of green, eco-friendly products free of harsh chemicals perfect for your new little bundle of joy. You can get a free trial of their diapers and wipes bundle by going HERE.
