The Honest Company was co-founded by actress Jessica Alba in 2011 to produce safe, nontoxic, environmentally friendly health products for babies and families. Its products are available for purchase online and from retailers across the country, including Target, Costco and Nordstrom. The company also operates a popular subscription service offering monthly delivery of bundled products for expectant and new mothers.
As of January 2016, there are four monthly subscription bundles available, all of which are priced at substantial discounts to regular retail prices. If you are a fan of The Honest Company products, opting for a subscription bundle is almost certainly worth it. Alongside the convenience of the service, it is an easy way to save money on baby essentials such as diapers, wipes and formula, as well as health supplements for mothers, as well as personal care and cleaning products.
The Honest Company bundle subscriptions are designed to fit a monthly delivery and payment schedule for most subscribers. While the number of products in each bundle is fixed, you can customize your delivery dates to match your needs. If a bundle lasts you only three weeks instead of a month, simply update your delivery schedule.
You are only charged when a bundle is shipped out to you. With appropriate notice, you can cancel a subscription at any time. As of January 2016, most subscribers enjoy free shipping on bundle orders exceeding $50 per month. Free shipping is not available for shipments to Hawaii or Alaska.
