Recycle On Us

Fill out the form below to get the prepaid mailing label.

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

Mail your product tubes back with UPS.



When mailing back eligible packaging, 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.

Want to collect even more and earn rewards for your shipments for a non-profit or school? We have partnered with TerraCycle to help us recycle even more. Click here to visit our Burt’s Bees Recycle on Us TerraCycle page to learn more and sign up!


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

But some packaging does not always survive the sorting process at recycling centers- whether due to size, format, or the fact that sometimes mixed materials are needed to effectively deliver the product to our customers. That's why we offer a Recycle on Us option to give you the greatest certainty that the packaging that brought you your favorite Burt's Bees products will get recycled.

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!
