Recycling in partnership with Burt's Bees®

How it works

Participating is simple and free. 

If there are no public drop-off points near you, join this program and download a free shipping label to send your collections to TerraCycle.

  1. Sign up for the program. If you don’t have a TerraCycle account yet, create one here

  2. Once in the program, start collecting Burt’s Bees packaging in any box you have.

  3. When your collection box is full, log into your account to download and print a shipping label.

  4. Seal up your collection box, affix the printed shipping label onto it. Send via UPS.

What you can recycle

Burt’s Bees branded personal care, lip care, beauty care, and any other Burt’s Bees packaging with a TerraCycle logo can be recycled through this program.

Best practices for recycling

We encourage you to ship when your box is full of Burt’s Bees packaging to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible (i.e. leftover makeup). UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the Burt’s Bees packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
