Burt’s Bees is a truly inspirational company, according to a business website which has identified it as one of three brands which go above and beyond.
The website AGBeat says Burt’s Bees serves as inspiration for any brand, and has a large, loyal customer following.
“While it may be easy to manufacture and sell eco-friendly products, it’s a different thing entirely to actually live and conduct business in compliance with those professional beliefs”, says the website.
“Burt’s Bees does just that. Burt’s Bees isn’t just about making a profit—which, of course, is a goal of any business. It’s also about staying true to its brand and professional culture. And that goes for every employee that is a part of Burt’s Bees, from the top management tier down to hourly customer service representatives.”
The article describes how each employee of Burt’s Bees spends up to 30 hours every year doing something to help the world become more eco-friendly.
“Previously, Burt’s Bees shut down its headquarters in North Carolina and all able-bodied employees volunteered their entire work day with two charities to build an eco-friendly playground for the community,” says the website.
“Another year, employees donated over 400 pairs of old jeans to Habitat for Humanity, allowing those jeans to be used as insulation in new homes rather than just being thrown away.”
