Honest Brings the Holidays to Early Head Start Children With Baby2Baby

December 1, 2014

Helping families get the best start for their kids is in The Honest Company’s DNA, and during the holiday season, the spirit of giving is heightened even further. For the second year in a row, The Honest Company partnered with Baby2Baby to sponsor their annual Family2Family Holiday Party and bring holiday joy to families in need.

We shopped for gifts for one hundred children and turned our headquarters into Santa’s workshop, with a wrapping party on December 4th. In addition to providing gifts, Honest donated 250 packs of wipes, 500 packs of diapers and 250 shampoos, toothpastes, healing balms, and face and body lotions for guests families to take home.

Children received their gifts and Honest products at the Family2Family Holiday Party on December 13. We were thrilled to see the joy on their faces!

Honest Partners With FoodCorps to Cook up Lasting Change

December 1, 2014

As part of our holiday gift this year, we’re continuing our tradition of social goodness and are helping create a healthier, safer future for our children to thrive. We care passionately about children’s health – what goes on and around children, but also what goes IN children. Nutrition education and access to healthy food is critical to healthy development.

That’s why The Honest Company is investing $125,000 in FoodCorps, a nationwide team of AmeriCorps leaders, to shape healthier school food environments and give children an enduring relationship with real food to lead longer, more productive lives.

Honest Delivers Education and Healthier Products to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

November 14, 2014

Our Safe, Kids Safe Sleep initiative continued into November with a visit to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. In partnership with the Safe Kids Coalition, Baby2Baby and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Jessica and close to 100 Honest team members educated at-risk families about safe sleep practices and presented each family with Honest essentials and cribs from our Buy One, Give One initiative.

As one of the top five corporate fundraising teams from the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, the Honest team had the opportunity to learn about the pediatric cancer research our contributions are helping to support. We had the privilege of distributing 300 bags of Honest essentials to in-patient children and their families. With each bag and conversation, we witnessed the true power and courage of the human spirit and witnessed what it really means to be a hero.

Honest Employees Participate in Movember Efforts

100% of Honest Employees Participate in Movember Efforts to Raise Funds and Awareness for Men’s Health

November 1, 2014

When it comes to making the world a safer, healthier (and happier) place for the men in our lives, Honest employees are passionate. Did you know that men are 24% less likely to have visited a doctor in the past year, they’re also less likely to address the most serious physical and mental health issues facing men, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental illness? With such startling a reality, Honest employees rallied together to raise over $50,000 for the Movember Foundation—we believe that together, we can raise awareness and inspire real change.

Honest co-founders Jessica Alba, Christopher Gavigan, Brian Lee, and Sean Kane celebrated the opening of The Honest Company Ultra Clean Room at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

Turtle Pillows for Sick Campers

Honest Makes Turtle Pillows for Sick Campers at The Painted Turtle Summer Camp

July 7, 2014

From July 7-11th, 2014, the Honest team brought out our crafting skills to make “turtle pillows” for children with life-threatening illnesses attending The Painted Turtle Summer Camp.

The Painted Turtle provides a traditional summer camp experience for sick children from across the United States. This camp experience is completely free of charge and provides these children with a sense of fun, community, and outdoor adventure. Many of these children are away from their family & home for the first time so these turtle pillows are given to them upon their arrival at camp to serve as a source of comfort during their time away.

Heal the Bay

Beach Clean-Up with Heal the Bay

June 21, 2014

In celebration of the first day of summer, the Honest team grabbed our buckets and gloves to join a community beach clean-up with Heal the Bay. We combed Will Rogers State Beach for pieces of plastic, styrofoam, cigarette butts, and every other piece of trash polluting the beach. By the end of the event, our team managed to collect over 6 pounds of trash (which is significant considering most pieces of trash are smaller than a quarter in size!)

Heal the Bay is a nonprofit organization working to make Southern California coastal waters and watersheds safe, healthy, and clean. They host regular community action programs and advocacy efforts to protect the coast.

Honest Turns Teal to Green to Support Earth Week

April 21, 2014

In honor of Earth Day (April 22, 2014), the Honest Office hosted a “Teal to Green” Week to focus on sustainability and education in the workplace. We challenged each other to improve commutes to the office with carpooling, biking, and walking. We learned about proper recycling techniques and we watched a documentary on how to improve plastic pollution. We participated in a spin class with proceeds going to the nonprofit organization, Heal the Bay, working to clean our oceans. We eliminated waste by reminding people to print on both sides of paper, to use cloth towels in the restroom, and to use reusable cups and silverware. Overall, we worked to remember that every day is earth day here at Honest and each employee plays a role in making that happen.

Fruit Harvested for Local Families with Food Forward

3,200 lbs of Fruit Harvested for Local Families with Food Forward

April 12, 2014

As part of our commitment to National Volunteer Week, over 50 Honest employees joined Food Forward in the Huntington Gardens to harvest oranges for a local food receiving agency. In total, we picked over 3,200 pounds of fresh fruit to serve to Los Angeles families in need. That is the equivalent of 12,800 servings of fruit! As a volunteer--based organization, Food Forward rescues fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste and connects this abundance with agencies across Los Angeles county.


“One of the best things about partnering with the Honest Company is how involved each volunteer gets in the work they do and how they support the community in so many ways.”

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we aimed to create ways for each employee to show their love and gratitude throughout the month of February.
