Burt's Bees, Tom's of Maine, Naked Juice
not surprised, but that sucks! :smirk:

Quote:Needless to say, I was shocked when I recently found out that Burt's Bees is now owned by Clorox, a massive corporate company that has historically cared very little about the environment, but whose main industry is directly associated with harmful chemicals, some of which require warning labels for legal sale.

Clorox; yes, that's right -- the bleach company with an estimated revenue of $ 4.8 billion that employs nearly 7,600 workers (now bees) and sells products like Liquid-Plumr, Pine-Sol and Armor All, a far cry from the origins of Burt.

I now understood. The reason Burt's Bees products were everywhere was precisely because they now had a powerful corporation in the driver's seat, with big marketing budgets and existing distribution systems.

I'm going to print this out and pass it on to the lady that owns our local organics shop. She takes massive pride in how 'on top of things' she is... Info like this will make her reconsider a couple products that she carries. Kinda sad though. I have two tubes of Burts Bees with in arms length of my keyboard.... :umm:Got the Tom's of Maine in the bathroom.... :ouch:That's fine though. I have no problem boycotting major corporations. Seek and ye shall find.
