Rolling Up Our Sleeves
Each year, we’re pleased to be able to partner with some 40 organizations whose initiatives we support by providing product donations, sponsorships and often a simple sharing of time and expertise. As a business, we’re energized by these opportunities to roll up our sleeves and lend a hand. Often, we volunteer in our communities and nearby neighborhoods.
One of the efforts nearest and dearest to our hearts is our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Durham. To learn more, read about our continued efforts partnering with Habitat for Humanity.
Around the World
Recently, our Canadian team rolled up their sleeves and energized a determined group of Burt’s Bees employees, neighborhood members and youth from the local schools. Along with the support of the City of Toronto, they launched the Sunken Gardens Revitalization Project. Within just a few months, a vibrant green area was ready for the community to enjoy.
The Greater Good Foundation
We have a passion for lending a hand—especially to innovative grass roots organizations working to eliminate the causes of social and environmental problems. We look 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.
In 2007, to formalize our commitment to these giving programs, we established The Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization. Since its inception, we have made $1,200,000 in grants through The Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation. Learn more in our Social & Environmental Reporting.
