Why We Shop Honest (Sponsored & Giveaway)

The following post is part of a series sponsored by Honest, of whom I have been a paying customer since the twins were bitty babes. Thank you for being behind us, Honest. Keep rocking.

One of the more frequently asked questions when I was pregnant with Bo and Revi was whether I planned to use cloth diapers. Clearly there was concern over the double diaper duty equating to double the landfill...ing, which I understand and felt similarly guilty about. Having four children meant I would have to work that much harder reducing our carbon footprint as a family. I made it my mission to waste less, buy resale when possible and drive my car only when absolutely necessary.

The truth is, while I flirted with the idea of cloth diapers, I knew, from the get it wasn't going to be for us. Not that I don't think cloth diapering is AWESOME, I just didn't see how doing more laundry (we do QUITE a bit as it is) would be our bag. Enter HONEST, biodegradable, non-toxic, natural diapers that were as cute as they were absorbant, functional, not to mention subscription based and BAM = sold. That was last year and we've been monthly subscribers ever since.

Here's how it works:

Every month we get a box full of sustainable (plant-based) diapers and wipes a la the Honest Diapers Bundle, updating when the babies grow and/or if I want to change up the diaper prints. ED: They recently added some ADORABLE new patterns to their diaper repertoire and today, for example, the girls are rocking these 80's-esque "heart print" diaps which remind me of a pair of KEDS I used to wear when I was five. In a good way.

Then there's the Family Essentials Bundle which is equally as cool and full of (organic! non-toxic!) household necessities. For just under $36 a month, you get to choose five environmentally friendly toxin-free products for your fam. I especially love their conditioning mistsunscreen, detergent and stain remover, all of which we use here at home.

It's been a joy shopping with Honest this past year. They're a good company full of good people creating good products for the better good. Happy Anniversary, diapers. Let's have some cake.

I wanted to cloth diaper, but I can barely keep up on our regular laundry. I didn't see how adding more to the mix would allow me to stay sane. I'd love to give these a shot!!
