Ecofriendly Disposable Diapers?

If you all have been following me from when I was pregnant, you’ll know that I try my best to be as ecofriendly as possible.  Something I had debated about long and hard before Mabel was born was what my husband and I wanted to do about diapers…and it was quickly decided that we are not cloth diaper people (all the power to you if you are…but I just didn’t want more laundry/cleaning to do!).  And because we weren’t cloth diapering, I felt like there weren’t any other options out there that would allow us to be ecofriendly.  But then recently, I discovered The Honest Company!

What a wonderful and positive message that was included on my trial box! Recycle and reuse!

The Honest Company is all about ecofriendly baby, self pampering, and household products that are sent right to your door.  You might also be impressed to know that Jessica Alba is a co-founder.  Please take a few seconds to read the pic above.  🙂  That message was on my trial box and it made me smile!  The Honest Company was actually encouraging me to find another use for the box since it would be even better than recycling it.  I love companies who stand behind what the preach.  And also take a look at this:

Inside the box they sent, only diapers and the wipes were inside!  NO extra packaging that would end up in the trash!  I’m often amazed at all the extra plastic, paper, and other trash inside boxes I get when I order something but not from The Honest Company.  This truly was awesome.

But let me get back to the diapers.  They make diapers that are as environmentally friendly as possible for your baby and the Earth.  Their materials are bio-based, naturally biodegradable (wow!), comfortable on sensitive skin…and ADORABLE!  Look at the prints that I received in my trial:

So cute!

And here’s little Miss Mabel modeling the purple leopard pair:

The free trial (no strings attached!) that I signed up for came with 7 diapers and a mini package of wipes.  I couldn’t have been happier to try them out on Mabel.  How had I not known that there was a company that would allow me to be more ecofriendly than we had been with our regular disposables that we had been using on Mabel?  And with no added chlorine or brighteners added to the diapers, I have more a peace of mind putting them on Mabel.

I can feel like I’m doing my part for the environment and most importantly, my baby.

Here’s a little video clip that I found on YouTube with Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan, the two founders.  It basically explains how the company was founded and the principles on which the company was created on (way better than I could explain it to you plus I felt it was kind of moving!):

I highly encourage you to try a free sample (there is a link in the paragraph below) and I think you’ll be honestly surprised!  Not to mention I’m willing to bet you’ll love the super cute prints on the diapers!  😉

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.

    We have been using these diapers for 6 months and LOVE them! Never a leak or blow out! And the wipes are so strong! I use them in the kitchen to clean up after feeding my daughter! I love this company!

    How do you dispose of the diapers? Can I simply throw them in with my recycling? I’m due in 4 weeks and I’m pretty set on skipping the free trial and using the Honest company! I just can’t find anything on their website about disposal?
