What happens to this waste

Once collected, the Burt’s Bees® Towelettes are cleaned, shredded, and made into new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of Burt’s Bees® towelettes sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 500 grams.

For example:

200 grams = 0 TerraCycle® points
500 grams
= 50 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram
= 100 TerraCycle® points

Please note that TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators and private collectors as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the weight of the parcel. 1 TerraCycle® point is worth 1 penny.

Once credited, the points can be redeemed into financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
