Honest Family Tree

Honest Joins our Members in Planting 65,000 trees across the United States #HonestFamilyTree

December 1, 2013

He who plants a tree, plants a hope” – Lucy Larcom

When we set out to create a holiday gift for our Honest community, we wanted to create something that would bring delight while still upholding our commitment to social responsibility and sustainability. We wanted a gift that would keep on giving. Thus, the concept of the Honest Family Tree was born.

We partnered with an organic nursery in Northern California, The Jonsteen Company, to put together an assortment of living evergreen tree seedlings that would be sent to our members across the country. Called “Honest Family Trees,” these 1-2 year old Cedar, Spruce, Fir, and Sequoia trees will provide ongoing beauty and environmental support for generations to come.

Project Thanksgiving

Project Thanksgiving: Honest Employees Create 160 Thanksgiving Meal Boxes

November 15, 2013

Together, we collected enough non-perishable food to assemble 160 full Thanksgiving meals-in-a-box for local families in need. Employees were assigned to one of ten teams and were challenged to collect 160 individual food items in their assigned food group (for example, Team Green Beans was responsible for collecting 160 cans of green beans). Each team worked together to meet their goal, which then made it possible for us to assemble 160 complete baskets!

HONESTLY SPEAKING:

“The Honest Company’s generous contributions were a Thanksgiving blessing. The energy, creativity, and thoughtfulness that their staff put into each individually decorated Turkey Basket helped ensure that the families in need served at St. Joseph Center had the happiest possible Thanksgiving.”

– Paul Rubenstein, Development Director

National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Partnership with Saint Jude

National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: Show You Care + Share

September 3, 2013

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. For every badge shared during the month of September, Honest donated $1 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in support of all children and families battling childhood cancer. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 % to 80% since it opened 50 years ago, and families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

HONESTLY SPEAKING:

“St. Jude relies on funding from generous corporate sponsors like The Honest Company to continue our lifesaving mission,” said Rick Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Their support helps us honor our commitment that no family pays St. Jude for anything.”

April 17, 2013

At the end of April, The Honest Company hosted a special “pampering” session for 25 deserving moms-to-be at our charitable partner Baby2Baby’s monthly Playdate. Baby2Baby creates these events to benefit low-income families, providing them with much-needed baby essentials while offering them a morning of fun and entertainment in the Baby2Baby headquarters.

For our Honest Playdate, we wanted to pamper some very special pregnant women from the community—especially with Mother’s Day around the corner. These women had recently been emancipated from the foster care system and were actively working through mentoring and job training programs to create a strong home life for their soon-to-be bundles of joy. We were honored to spend the morning with them!

Volunteer Day Building Gardens with Garden School Foundation

Employee Volunteer Day Building Gardens with Garden School Foundation

February 23, 2013

On February 23, 2013, we donned our Honest t-shirts and Honest sunscreen, grabbed our rakes and shovels, and set out to make a difference. Our goal was to build a community garden for Widney High School in one day. Under the direction and inspiration of the Garden School Foundation, our team wanted to make a lasting impression on our very first Honest Company Employee Volunteer Day.

HONESTLY SPEAKING:

“The Honest Company employees are just amazing. A few months ago, over 50 folks showed up and helped us build a huge vegetable garden at a school for kids with developmental disabilities that will be used for a job training program. They worked so hard - I honestly wasn’t sure we’d finish the job that day and was so gratified when we filled the last bed with soil and plants. Since then, volunteers from Honest have continued to show up at our community events and help out with the same dedication and fabulous attitudes that we saw that first day. Thank you, Honest, for sharing your incredible staff with our community!”

– Julia Cotts, Garden School Foundation
