Rolling Up Our Sleeves

Each year, we’re pleased to be able to partner with some 40 organisations whose initiatives we support by providing product donations, sponsorships and often a simple sharing of time and expertise. As a business, we’re energised by these opportunities to roll up our sleeves and lend a hand. Often, we volunteer in our communities and nearby neighborhoods.

Around the World

Recently, our Canadian team rolled up their sleeves and energised 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 Revitalisation Project. Within just a few months, a vibrant green area was ready for the community to enjoy.

 

The Greater Good Foundation

Photo CaptionWe have a passion for lending a hand—especially to innovative grass roots organisations 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 formalise our commitment to these giving programs, we established The Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organisation. The Foundation is run by volunteer employees and funded by a donation of 10 percent of our burtsbees.com website sales, Bee-utify Your World tour sales and employee orders.
