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.

  1. It’s the principle of it. There are plenty of other companies to buy from, and I sent them a letter stating as such. I find it hard to give my money to a giant corporate organization that promotes the use of bleach for everything, that’s all. Thanks for the comment!

  2. But if you stop buying their more green products, aren’t they more likely to think that it’s not worth continuing to make them…?

  3. What u did not know was that Burt’s Bees had sold out long long time ago in October 2003 to an investment company called AEA that was fattening the lamb all tis while.
    And considering how u loved the brand in the last 4 years thanks to ur ignorance, the same will apply to millions of others.

  4. Strange that you would be anonymous to leave that comment, but OK, I will play along. Did the investment company make chemicals and pawn them off as healthy? Not as far as I can tell, and that is what Clorox does.

  5. Yuck, Clorox also owns Brita water filters to get the bleach out of your water! How is that for buttering your bread on both sides?

    Makes you wonder how many companies that they own. Phillip Morris owns Sara Lee and tons more food labels. double yuck.
