What I love most about working at The Honest Company Warehouse are my co-workers and the atmosphere they bring to the warehouse. I love waking up in the morning knowing I will be going to work at a place where I am happy and we are making a difference in the world. Kind of like volunteering and getting paid for it. Nice!
My favorite product is the Hand Sanitizer Spray. I love the scent of it and the way it feels apart from the Gel Hand Sanitizer. I believe I am sanitizer freak # 1.
My most memorable moment was when I received the appreciation award from Roosevelt my manager at the first-ever town hall meeting. It wasn’t so much getting the gift card that made it feel like the most memorable moment but the recognition of all the long hours and hard work. Unforgettable moment!
I try to convince my family about volunteering, explaining the goodness in it — how helping people and the earth makes it a better place for us and our kids’ future. I also try to make my family use only organic and non-toxic products and food.
I would be playing soccer and boxing because both of these are my favorite sports. If I wasn’t here at Honest, I would have tried to be a professional soccer player since I — and only me — believe I am that good. I spent four years of my life as a boxer and retired due to a minor injury of a cracked jaw and nose, although I was really expecting to make my last boxing fight a trophy on my wall at the old warehouse. This fight got canceled due to a heavy snow storm.
It’s so refreshing working for a company that is hyper-focused on their mission of healthy living and giving back to the community. When you work for Honest, it’s so hard to not be educated on living more sustainably and healthily. Inevitably you find yourself adopting better eating habits, working out more, and making health-conscious choices. I think this type of environment, coupled with all the charity work that Honest does, breeds an atmosphere of goodwill in the workplace. I love the people I work with, and love coming in to work everyday knowing that our brand is making a difference in people’s lives.
That’s a tough question! I use all the Honest products, but if I had to choose just one, I’d have to go with the Honest Shampoo + Body Wash. It’s really gentle and versatile as a wash. And I’ve actually found an unconventional use for it! I use it on knits and sweaters that have shrunk in the dryer. I find that if I handwash it in Honest Shampoo + Body Wash and allow it to air-dry, my clothing will be restored to its pre-shrunken state. I’ve used it in this manner for so many articles of clothing and it has yet to fail me!
The most memorable Honest moment has to be the non-traditional Thanksgiving canned food drive. Our company got split up into 10 teams competing for “donation dollars,” with each team trying to outdo the other in team spirit and best tower of stacked Thanksgiving food. All the festivities really put a highlight on the Honest’s charitable donations: every team’s charity of choice received a cash donation and 160 Thanksgiving meal boxes were distributed to local families in need.
A few months after I started my job here, I took the Honest challenge and haven’t looked back! I threw out all my name brand cleaners and replaced them all with Honest products. They are so effective and give me peace of mind. I can’t live without my Honest Dishwasher Pods or Honest Stain Remover Spray.
This year I really started getting into cooking! I’m a total novice, but I’m trying to commit to cooking 3-5 dinners a week and bringing my own lunch everyday. So I guess if I weren’t at work, I’d be trying my hand at a new recipe. I find it so satisfying when the dish turns out delicious and I’m definitely comforted knowing each ingredient that went into it. I’m slowly learning how to make my own adjustments to dishes, such as halving the sugar or butter, or making healthier substitutions for certain ingredients.
Most impressive thing I’ve made so far? For a St. Patrick’s day dinner party, I made homemade basil ice cream and it turned out amazing!
Working at The Honest Company is an experience like no other! I don’t think I knew what the true definition of “company culture” was until I started working here. We have karaoke nights, summer barbecues, and ping pong tournaments—it doesn’t get much better than that! Everyone at Honest is so positive, enthusiastic, and passionate. I am so fortunate to come into work every day and be surrounded by people that I truly consider my friends. Also, I can’t say that I mind the fridge and cabinets that are stocked with snacks on a weekly basis.
This is such a hard question! I love the hand sanitizer spray! It works and smells amazing! It is so convenient that it comes with two bottles—I keep one at my desk at work and keep the other one in my purse! Before Honest, hand sanitizer was a product that I would not get near. I disliked the harsh chemicals and drying agents that are in typical hand sanitizers. With our hand sanitizer spray, I swear my hands feel so soft and moisturized after every use! I love that I can feel safe about using the product as well. I can’t tell you how many people I have turned onto this product. My friends and family are hooked!
Halloween! There was SO much laughter at work that day! You know you have great company culture when 100% of your coworkers dress up for Halloween! It was so fun seeing people dress up in groups competing to win our costume contest. There were people dressed up as Disney characters, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, and much more. My group dressed up as Honest diaper patterns. We didn’t win but we had a great time!
I’ve struggled with asthma for majority of my life so cleaning products have always been something that I have been very sensitive to. I remember the first time I used the multi-surface cleaner I was amazed! I did not have the need to open up any windows or doors in order for me to breathe properly. Now I have completely converted all of my cleaning products to Honest. I even have turned my roommates onto Honest!
I grew up in the Bay Area and am fairly new to Los Angeles so I enjoy spending my time off exploring all that SoCal has to offer. The weather is absolutely perfect and there is seriously so much to do! We are so fortunate in California. Los Angeles is so cool because it has such close proximity to so many awesome places. I love going on spontaneous weekend trips to Santa Barbara (go Gauchos!), San Diego, and Palm Springs. With spring right around the corner, I am looking forward to spending a lot more time outside. I love going on beach runs, boating, and hiking. Also, I can never say no to a Disneyland trip, country concert, or a Sunday barbecue.
