Burt’s Bees. For the Greater Good

We love Burt’s Bees because its one of those inspiring entrepreneurial stories that has made fortunes by doing things for The Greater Good. The success story began with Roxanne Quimby, a mother and waitress, and Burt Shavitz, a beekeeper in Maine. The two teamed up to sell candles made from the beeswax created as a by-product of Burt’s honey business. Today, Burt’s Bees has nearly 400 employees with products available through approximately 30,000 retail stores in the United States, as well as Canada, UK, Taiwan and with its online sales. In 2007, the Clorox Company acquired Burt’s Bees for the sum of $925 million. In 2010, Burt’s Bees was named the No. 1 green brand as perceived by U.S. consumers by the ImagePower Green Brands Survey.
