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 nature. All 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.
