Educating Our Employees, Community and Consumers
We believe that the more of us who get involved in environmental and sustainability initiatives, the better it is for everyone. So we’re always looking for ways to educate ourselves and others on the importance of being environmentally conscious both inside our walls and in the world around us.
Several years ago, a group of Burt’s Bees employees came together with a common goal of making a difference in our company’s efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle. They named themselves the Environmentally Conscious Organization Bringing Ecologically Empowered Solutions, a lofty name with a great acronym - ECOBEES. While the name may not have rolled off the tongue, their passion for positive change spoke volumes. The ECOBEES exist to pioneer and inspire the way we think and act as a business by focusing on innovative alternatives for living and working in harmony with our environment.
