Burt's Bees Toothpaste Is Introducing Curbside-Recyclable Tubes
You can now drop your toothpaste carton AND tube in your home recycling bin.
Over ONE BILLION toothpaste tubes are thrown away globally every year – but new innovation in recyclable plastic tube technology allows us to be part of the solution.
Introducing HDPE curbside-recyclable tubes. #2 HDPE plastic is one of the most commonly-recyclable plastics, used in everything from milk jugs to laundry detergent bottles. In municipalities where #2 HDPE is recycled, you can give your toothpaste tube new life throughout the entire recycling ecosystem once it hits your curbside recycling container. Just empty and hand-flatten your tube to ensure It flows through the recycling sorting process.
Burt's Bees toothpaste tubes will be curbside-recyclable by early 2021. Our Charcoal + Whitening with Fluoride toothpaste is now available in an HDPE tube. The rest of the lineup will transition to HDPE tubes through early 2021.
Look for the recycling statement on the back of the carton.
If you see this statement, Recycle On Us: Burt's Bees Purely White, Extra White, Charcoal + Whitening Fluoride Free, and Kids Toothpaste tubes can be recycled using our free mail-back program (only offered in the US).
Check back here for updates as we transition the rest of the lineup.
