Burts Bees Buzzes about Sustainability

Burts Bees is well known for its all natural lip care, face and body products. What some people don’t know is that they do as much to try and better the world and those who live in it as they do to better skin care regiments with their products.

In 2007, Burts Bees created the The Burts Bees Greater Good Foundation. This intiative is funded by some of the Burt’s Bees overall sales with the goal to “help empower non-profit initiatives whose efforts resonate with our own mission, particularly in the areas of natural health and well-being, the environment and social responsibility.”

The Burts Bees Greater Good Foundation wants to make the world greener by providing only natural products, including the packaging made from post-consumer recycled content, to their customers in an effort to establish a smaller carbon footprint on the environment. Since it was created, The Burt’s Bees Foundation has given over $2 million in grants and in 2015, the Foundation donated over $300,000 to multiple nonprofit organizations.

The Burts Bees Greater Good Foundation has partnered with several organizations that have the same values in mind when it comes to making the world a better place through sustainability. Some of these companies include Habitat for Humanity, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, Rural Advancement Foundation International, Farmer FoodShare etc.
