I have to be honest...Before I became a mother, I never really gave any thought to whether or not commonly used household products were safe, non-toxic, or eco-friendly. When I was younger, that never really occurred to me. It's not like I didn't care, per-se, I was just very young and oblivious to that type of thing. I was more worried about what I would wear to some silly party or why the guy I liked wasn't paying attention to me that day. You know, silly teenage stuff that in the whole scheme of things really doesn't matter one single bit.
Fast forward almost 13 years, and you'll find an entirely different attitude in my home. We try our best to make the best decisions for our family, and do quite a bit to help preserve not only the environment, but safeguard the health of our children as well. We cloth-diaper a lot of the time, use non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaners and personal care products, and buy organic foods whenever possible. Some say I've turned into a hippy of sorts, but I just think that being a mom has made me a much more responsible human being. I care now about the world we live in, and I want to do as much as possible to allow future generations to inherit a planet that isn't in total ruin.
If you're considering making greener choices for your household, congrats! I think that once you start making these not-so-difficult lifestyle changes, you won't look back. One great place to start in your search for creating a healthy environment is The Honest Company.
The Honest Company, which is co-founded by none other than the lovely Jessica Alba, offers a wide variety of safe, eco-friendly products for the whole family. They are not only safe and made from sustainable materials, they're also quite chic! Rich colors, bold patterns, and fun designs make going green totally high fashion. Some of the products you'll find at The Honest Company include diapers and wipes, laundry detergent, household cleaners, sunscreen, bath and body products, and even bug repellent!
The awesome folks at The Honest Company sent me a sampling of their diapers and wipes to try for myself. I have to admit, I fell in love with the diapers right away because they come in several hip prints like leopard, skulls, and even cute little ice cream cones! I still prefer my cloth diapers, but these are a wonderful alternative because they're made from non-toxic, biodegradable plant-based materials that are totally safe for baby's delicate skin.
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.
