Do You Use Eco-Friendly Products Within Your Home? Here’s Why We Do

Do you use eco-friendly products within your home? We sure do…and we use a variety of different ones. From diapers (when the girls were still in diapers) to cleaning products and paper products to composting and hand-me-down/reused/upcycled decor and clothing, we do what we can. And surprisingly to most people, it doesn’t cost more to do it.

I think it is very important to help try to keep the Earth as healthy as possible, and even more importantly, to teach my children how to do it so that they don’t even think about it as being anything other than something that just comes naturally to them.

They understand recycling, they help us grow our veggie garden (and they even understand that things like celery and green onions will regrow!), they love planting flowers (Mia is in the process of planting popcorn kernels so that she can grow her own popcorn tree and have popcorn whenever she wants), and they know that they have to donate their old toys before Christmas and their birthdays to kids less fortunate…they understand reusing instead of throwing away.

For me, I feel it’s my duty to explain and make it a priority in their lives. And that’s why I have been a fan of The Honest Company for so long. I am such a fan that I even wrote a review of The Honest Company over at Smart Mom Picks at the beginning of the year!

I like how they describe their brand: “…savvy style, sustainability, and extraordinary service & convenience all wrapped in a passion for social goodness, tied with a bow of integrity and sprinkled with a little cheeky fun. The company is obsessed with product design that’s functional, effective and durable – and also beautiful, fresh and fun.”

Their products are products that you can and will use in your everyday life. They look great, are made with organic and natural materials, are affordable, and even more importantly, their products work.

We used their diapers when the girls were still wearing diapers and they worked just as well as other major brands. They have a huge variety of patterns to reflect your kids’ personalities, and they were affordable. And if you compost, these diapers are made of all natural ingredients…this means that if it’s just a wet diaper, you can compost them!

You don’t have to change your entire way of living to live a little greener – just try working a few eco-friendly products into your family’s lifestyle!

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 and have it delivered directly to your front door.

  1. These diapers are guaranteed safe to the skin. My nieces and nephews grew up with them and not even once had I seen them have rashes all over their skin.
  2. It’s great to see how quickly we as an industry and as a world are slipping away from the “old skool” method where the environment wasn’t taken into account when making products. There are too many plastic water bottles floating in the ocean or sitting in landfills. The harm we have already caused is daunting, and the need for these measures to be taken is exponentially increasing.
  3. Yes. I've been living green for quite some time now. It's worth it especially if it means saving the future generations.
