AN INTERVIEW WITH Editor's Monthly Pick

JESSICA ALBA AND THE

HONEST COMPANY By Modern Mom Feb. 23, 2014

She's an actress, an author, a busy mom and somehow Jessica Alba still found time to co-found a company devoted to creating natural and non-toxic baby products. Along with Christopher Gaviga, the"Fantastic Four" actress started The Honest Company to provide parents with safe family ,essentials including diapers, wipes bath, skin care and home cleaning products. She was inspired to start the company - which recently partnered with daily deals site zulily to offer kids' fashion, accessories, toys and gear - after the birth of her daughter Honor, now 4. Alba and husband Cash Warren are also parents to .16-month old daughter Haven

8 Jessica Alba's Honest Company


"When I became a mom, I finally became the person that I am, that I always should have been." Why did you start The Honest Co.? When I was pregnant with my first daughter :I read the book Healthy Child, Healthy World Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home by Christopher Gavigan and learned about toxic chemicals in everyday products like baby shampoo, diapers, home furnishings and household cleaners Shocked about this discovery, I spent hours upon hours researching products and trying to shop around the problem in Europe and Australia. I’d shell out way more money for the supposedly green products only to get home and find out the natural diapers I just bought still had the ingredients I was trying to avoid. And the few products that were safe never seemed to effectively clean. It was beyond frustrating. So, I created Honest.com because I .needed and wanted it as a mom and I knew I could do it better .

What's one piece of advice would you give new moms?

i

i

i

Research everything from clothing to mattresses to cleaning products (read labels!) to find out .what’s really inside them and make sure what you’re bringing home is safe for your baby Frustratingly, I learned that many of the “green” products I bought still contained the toxic ,chemicals I was trying to avoid. Now, I stay away from items with chemicals like flame-retardants .harsh preservatives, plasticizers, or those made with petroleum-based ingredients And so you can share what you learn along the way, consider participating in a mom group - whether it’s a blog community or a in-person class - because it’s a great way to find friendship and support since everyone is transitioning through the same .stages at the same time


?Why partner with Zulily Like The Honest Company, zulily understands the needs of busy parents and has created a site to make ,shopping easy, bring customers the best of the best and offer it all at an affordable price. By partnering to ,deliver Honest’s products to the zulily community we’re able to engage new customers and expand our mission of providing families everywhere with .unquestionably safe, healthy, and natural products

What are five things you can't live ?without ,I don’t leave home without my wallet, keys, a scarf .Honest hand sanitizer, and my Windows 8 phone

What are your top suggestions for women who want to become a ?“greener mommy” Don’t stress! First and foremost, read labels and do a bit of research. You will find eco- friendly .1 alternatives that make the most sense for your family. I know people feel like going “green” means an extreme lifestyle makeover is required. Not true. It’s really about educating yourself about options, doing what you can, and taking baby steps to get there. For some, eating organic is the priority. For others, improving air quality inside their home is what’s important. (FYI – The air quality inside most homes is more toxic than outside because of off-gassing and the use of toxic chemicals in everything from mattresses to wall paint.) Either way, it’s about making small choices !.that will have an impact on the health of you, your family, and the planet Switch to Non-Toxic Products. Through my work .2 ,for The Honest Company and Safer Chemicals Healthy Families, I’ve learned that the things we ,least suspect in our lives— mattresses, couches\ paint, diapers, cleaning products—are filled with ,toxins that have been linked to allergies, asthma ,and even cancer. So, make the switch to natural non-toxic, and organic household items. With that said, “greening” your home takes time and definitely won’t happen over night. I promise it’s a gradual process—even a few years after remodeling my house, I’m still making the switch to eco-friendly fixtures. But one thing that’s easy to do, doesn’t require a huge investment, and has immediate benefits is swapping conventional cleaners for safer, non-toxic brands like those from Honest.com or you could even take a crack at .making your own at home if you feel so inclined You’ll breathe easier knowing your home doesn’t .have these toxins in the air


Ballet

more than just

dance

Through ballet, you will learn an outlet for emotional expression. By using your body to express emotions, it helps to integrate the mind and the body. There is much being written these days on the relationship between unexpressed emotions and chronic pain.

the Ballerina Project

Through the integration and expression of emotions, we are able to move through emotional distress, and possibly through the causes of chronic pain and other disease.

wonderful form of exercise an opportunity to develop many skills necessary in life. For some, it may also be a part of the road back to health, both psychological and physical.
