In 2007, Burt's Bees established The Greater Good Foundation, designed to further our mission of responsible environmental stewardship. The Greater Good Foundation empowers us in the areas of protecting honeybees, native pollinator bees and our local community.
Working together, we accomplish more. That was true when we started, and it's certainly true today (maybe truer than ever). We support sustainably-minded partners, as well as our local community, through funding and volunteer time.
This list is ever growing, so check back to follow the latest developments!
- POLLINATOR PARTNERSHIP
This one is, for obvious reasons, close to our heart. We have rasied over $50k for Pollinator Partnership since 2012. We continue to partner with them to build their organizational profile and raise awareness of pollinator issues.
- In 2014 we constructed five bee hotels in Southern Ontario. What’s a bee hotel? Only the chicest innovation to hit bee health since the hive! Burt’s Bees, partnered with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Sustainable TO Architecture + Building and Pollinator Partnerships on the custom creation and installation of five unique bee hotels across Ontario, featuring four in Toronto and one in Guelph.
- Employees help out by planting trees or picking up trash around the office at our annual eco-day.
