When a child is born into the world, so is a parent. Among the very first things to cross the minds of new caregivers – aside from, “are there instructions?” – is “how do I keep this little one as safe?” This is at the core of The Honest Company’s mission to empower people to live happy and healthy lives. Millennial parents are growing at a rate of one million per year; and these new parents are placing value in investing in brands that are not only safe for their families, but also eco-friendly and affordable.
With a shared commitment to providing budget-conscious, trusted and thoughtfully designed options for parents making important choices in caring for their little ones, Babies“R”Us® and The Honest Company® have partnered to bring The Honest Company’s products to Babies“R”Us stores across the U.S., with an expanded assortment and sizes online at Babiesrus.com.
