About the Honest Company
Why did you choose the name "The Honest Company"?
When we were trying to think of a name for our company, we thought we should choose something that reflected our core values and highest aspirations. Something that would keep us focused on doing things right and doing things better. The Honest Company was the clear choice.
If you look up "honest" in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the words you'll find in the definition outline our beliefs and intentions. "Honest" means:
- Free from fraud or deception, truthful – We believe in transparency and that applies to everything – from what we put into our products and how they are made to our internal operations and how we do things.
- Genuine, real – The Honest Company was started by parents for parents. We are real tangible people, parents that understand what families need and we want to deliver on that – not some big corporation with no social consciousness that only cares about making a profit.
- Respectable, praiseworthy – We are people with integrity and we intend on not only doing things right, but also going above and beyond to earn your respect and loyalty – making you so delighted you want to shout it from a rooftop (or tweet it from your iPhone).
- Humble – We know no one can be absolutely perfect and a part of our commitment to honesty means we'll admit our flaws. It's pretty scary, but we think it's a good way to keep us focused on constant improvement.
Honestly? This is the beginning of a long journey and we expect we'll make mistakes and drift from the path here and there. We're only human. But, by naming ourselves after our purest intentions, we will constantly be reminded to do better.

In addition, The Honest Company supports the development and adoption of alternative, cruelty-free methods of safety testing.
What's in my Diapers & Wipes Bundle?
The Diapers & Wipes Bundle is a monthly supply (based on average use) of super-absorbent, eco-friendly, and stylish baby diapers. Each month, at about the same time, you'll receive your Diapers & Wipes Bundle sized perfectly for your child. Also included are 4 packs of our thick and absorbent, botanically infused "Cheek to Cheek"™ wipes. Save 35% when purchasing our Diapers & Wipes Bundle Bundle versus purchasing Diapers and Wipes separately.
Each month when you are enrolled in the Diapers & Wipes Bundle, you can go to your personalized Account page and click on your Bundles to select the size that's appropriate for your little one, select the designs you love most, and adjust your desired approximate shipping date, if needed.
How many diapers are included in a one-month supply?
We have done our absolute best to generously forecast your monthly diaper & wipes usage. Based on a ton of category research, hundreds of use cases, and insights from moms and dads just like you, we have taken into account many factors in determining the amount to include in a diapers Bundle. The most important of these factors being the average monthly usage of U.S. infants and children and the composition of our diaper and how well it does its job (holding your baby's business). We certainly understand that every situation is unique, so we added extra on top of the average amount in order to accommodate your child's needs as they grow and develop. If you don't have enough for a 30-day supply, you can move up the shipment date for your next Bundle. If you find yourself with a few too many, you can move back the shipment date for your next Bundle. You can also give your Honest Support team a call at 1.888.862.8818 to discuss with us how to manage your diaper supply going forward. Unless you customize your delivery frequency your Bundle will be shipped every four weeks.

The Discovery Kit is free and shipped conveniently to your doorstep (however, there is a small shipping and handling fee of $5.95).
Will the wheat in your diapers cause a reaction in my son if he has allergies and celiac disease?
Wheat is used in the diapers because it's one of the only crops currently used for biopolymers (plastics made from plants). To our knowledge, no studies have been done regarding potential impacts on people with allergies or celiac disease. We do know that plastics made from corn go through a heating process to extract the starch from the corn and it destroys the immunologically reactive profilin. It's unclear if the same sort of "neutralization" happens when wheat is processed, but we'll explore this as best as we can. We are also eager to find non-food crops to use to create our biopolymers. In the meantime, we recommend you consult your family physician about whether or not you should try our diapers and how to best monitor for reactions.
What is The Collective?
The Collective is a special collection of products inspired by our favorite family essentials and must-haves for baby and home.
It’s called The Collective because each unique piece is created through a “together we can make it better” collaboration — in partnership with talented artisans, socially-minded brands, and innovative entrepreneurs who share our unwavering commitment to beautiful, safe, quality, practical products.
