Recycle On Us

Recycle On Us

You’ve done the impossible: you’ve finished a Burt’s Bees lip product. What do you do with the empty tube?
Easy: recycle it—on us. Here’s how:

  Click here to get the prepaid mailing label.

  Affix the label to an eco-friendly envelope, box or other container.

  Mail your product tubes back with USPS.



When mailing back tubes, please bundle and send back at least three at a time. You don't have to use a standard envelope, either! You can make your own out of any recyclable paper you have lying around. Be creative! We just ask that you avoid wasteful, bulky padded envelopes.


Sustainable packaging is important to us. We strive to reduce materials, use recyclable materials, and use as much post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic as possible.

But many lip care products are often too small to survive the sorting process at recycling centers—they literally fall through the cracks, and end their lives at landfills. That’s why it’s important not to sort eligible Burt’s Bees lip products with your regular curbside recycling.

When you Recycle on Us, you give your favorite Burt’s product another life. Your old Lip Balm tubes could be part of your neighbors next lip balm, a yogurt container, or even a park bench one day!
