If you’re looking for sustainable gift ideas, look no further. We have a collection of joy-inducing gift sets that are just as good for the environment as they are for your skin! 

The Burt’s Bees approach to sustainability

Ever since our humble beginnings when Burt was a beekeeper in Maine, Burt’s Bees has always harnessed the power of natureAll of our products are as close as possible to, if not 100% natural. Not only is this important for your skin, but our use of sustainably sourced, natural ingredients means we’re protecting the planet too. 

Since 2010, Burt’s Bees has operated landfill-free, diverting all waste to compost bins, recycling centres or waste-to-energy centres. In a bid to reduce our carbon footprint, we use only vegetable-based inks to print our labels, which are far less harmful to the environment than standard inks.  

Our product packaging is made from readily recyclable materials, such as aluminium and paper, but we also occasionally use recyclable plastic. Where possible, we use Post-Consumer Plastic – in fact, all of our lip balms are made with 50% PCR. 

Burt’s Bees Sustainable Gift Boxes

Our Burt’s Bees gift boxes are made from 100% recyclable materials, so you can rid of all the packaging guilt-free.  

Or, if you want to be extra kind to your planet, upcycle your gift boxes and find a new use for them! We love the idea of using it as a flower bed or plant pot – simply line the cardboard with a plastic bag and poke a few drainage holes, then fill with soil and plant your seed. Leave it to blossom on your window ledge and bring some of the natural world into your home. 

Moisture Duo Gift Set – Beeswax

This gift set has everything you need for naturally beautiful hands and lips. It contains our Beeswax Lip Balm and Hand Salve, both of which are enriched with 100% natural ingredients. With a lovely natural scent, beeswax hydrates and conditions skin to ensure it has a smooth, supple texture. It has a high concentration of Vitamin A, which promotes cell regeneration, helping to heal damaged skin. 

100% Natural Moisture Duo Gift Set – Honey

Give them a sweet treat with the honey Moisture Duo Gift Set. Our Honey Lip Balm is 100% natural and contains nourishing Vitamin E, to help your lips feel beautifully soft and smooth. The Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream moisturises dry, brittle nails for a freshly manicured feeling. 

Hemp Hand and Lip Kit

Another of our sustainable skincare gift sets is the Hemp Hand and Lip Kit. With its high content of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, hemp seed oil has a wealth of benefits for the skin. It provides a burst of hydration to help skin maintain its elasticity, it helps skin to repair and replenish its natural barrier, and locks in moisture to prevent the skin from becoming dehydrated.
