I take back everything I ever said about Burt’s Bees products – turns out they were only after the money. They recently agreed to a buy-out by Clorox for $925 million bucks. Clorox, the company that encourages people to spray bleach all over their house, kids, and pets? No thanks, I don’t want to give them any of my money at all.
Although we have been buying Burt’s Bees products for years, and my wife just recently started using their makeup, the packages and products we already have in the house will be the last. As soon as they are done, we are done with Burt’s Bees products. Sure, they will probably keep their products the same – but do you want to support a parent company that encourages bleach use, amongst the other chemicals that they promote? A company that tests products on animals?
It’s a shame that people that start these great companies are only after the almighty dollar instead of the greater good.
