I heard your company was purchased by Clorox. Is that correct?
I understand your concern about the Clorox Company taking ownership of Burt’s Bees. Being acquired by a larger company always raises questions about the ability to maintain culture and values, but those have not changed at Burt’s Bees.
In fact, we’re improving every day. Since 2007 we have increased the natural content of many of our products. We’re also proud to send ZERO waste to landfill from our manufacturing facility and office since 2010. We compost most of our waste and we also started reclaiming water from our manufacturing process, so we use less. Additionally, our operations are now carbon neutral. Most of this has occurred since the acquisition, and we are sharing best practices with Clorox too. They have begun “Dumpster Diving” to educate employees about waste reduction and they now have an Eco-team, as we do.
It’s very important to us to carry forward the principles of our founders and what they started back in 1984. I hope you’ll stick with us as we continue to pioneer natural health and beauty care solutions through the power of nature
