Something unexpected that I discovered when I began working at Honest is what a truly unique workplace it really is. I was prepared for the “startup lifestyle” and how non-traditional things may be, but Honest takes it to a whole new level. Beyond that, having all business components under one roof makes for a really remarkable experience. Everyone is so driven and focused on doing good, not only in their own department but all across the board. Which, in a way, stems directly from the passion that ignited the company in the first place. Having bosses that you can also call your role models, mentors, and friends is definitely something you don’t find everywhere.
Having to choose a favorite product is like asking a parent to choose their favorite child — I love them all in their own way! But a hands-down favorite has got to be the Organic Lip Balm Trio (specifically the lavender mint flavor). Anyone that knows me is aware that I am a lip balm addict, but it was not until I started working for Honest that I was finally able to ditch my usual cherry flavored tube. And my lips have never been happier! The Healing Balm is also a miracle worker, and my roommates are hooked on the Stain Remover as we’ve learned that red wine and white carpet do not mix well.
I could probably think of a favorite moment from each week of working here. We’ve got an unmatched sense of culture and definitely know what it means to work hard and play hard. Professionally, a favorite experience has been getting to help out with the DIY portion of the Honest Blog for the past four months or so by filling in and creating the bi-weekly project posts. It’s been fun tapping back into my artistic side, and also having the opportunity to interact with our members in a different way that I typically get to.
In college I majored in environmental science, so living sustainably has always been a priority for me. Once I started working at Honest, I broadened my scope to incorporate this from a health standpoint as well, by replacing all of my traditional cleaning supplies with Honest ones and trying more diligently to reduce exposure to environmental toxins. Now, I’m working on getting all of my family and friends hooked as well! It’s rare to find low impact products, that are safe, affordable, AND beautifully designed, so it’s exciting to get to be a part of this and to share it with others.
Well, I’m lucky to have really awesome parents who instilled the importance of travel in my twin brother and me at a very young age, so I am all about going new places and experiencing different cultures. As a SoCal native I also love the sunshine, so I try to be outside and at the beach as much as possible. Come September you’ll find me back in the stands, cheering on Jim Mora and the UCLA Bruins on their quest for the Natty! As part of a strong Alumni group, my friends and I try to make it out to as many games as we can. We’re currently working on our travel arrangements for the game against Texas at Cowboys Stadium — should be quite the experience.
As the diaper category manager and part of the amazing product team at Honest, I get to be involved in so many exciting projects. Together with the design team, we create the adorable patterns that are featured on the Honest diapers. The work environment here just can’t be beat. Every day I wake up excited for the new challenges and experiences the day will bring. I am so fortunate to be a part of such an amazing company, with an outstanding culture and the best, hard-working people. Really, I’m a very lucky girl.
I am obsessed with the hand sanitizer spray! I carry one in my purse and one in my gym bag at all times, so it’s perfect that they come in packs of two! It smells amazing and I love knowing that I can have clean hands no matter where I am. I teach a class at FIDM one night a week, and now my students are hooked on it as well! I love spreading the word about a great product that stops the spread of germs!
Recently, we had a blood drive at The Honest Company for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. One pint of blood can save up to three babies! We had a great time donating, and it’s nice to know that 20 minutes of your day can make such a big difference.
My fiancé has terrible allergies and is extremely sensitive to cleaning products. Before working at Honest, I tried so many different brands, all of which would leave him itching and sneezing each time we cleaned. I’ve since converted our entire household to only Honest cleaning and bath and body products. My fiancé’s allergies have significantly improved! We love that they are safe and non-toxic, and they smell amazing!
I love to spend time with my fiancé, and I am currently planning our September wedding! We enjoy spending time with family and friends, entertaining, and going to the farmer’s market. I also love to cook and bake. The best thing I made recently was a gluten-free and flourless chocolate cake for New Year’s Eve. It was so decadent and delicious that I am still being asked for the recipe! At least once a year, we try to make it to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, one of our favorite vacation spots.
