Taylor Schilling ambassador for Burt’s Bees ‘Bring Back the Bees’ initiative
From People Magazine
Here’s some beauty news that has us buzzing: Just in time for Earth Month, Burt’s Bees is relaunching its “Bring Back the Bees” initiative with two environmentally-conscious actresses: Troian Bellisario and Taylor Schilling. The pair succeed Lea Michele, who partnered with the brand on the inaugural campaign in 2016.
“The issue of the declining bee population is very complicated and impacts so many different aspects of our lives, but I think if there could be a little more awareness brought to the enormity of what honey bees do, that would be a job well done,” says Schilling.
These days, in addition to the cult classic, they also swear by some of Burt’s Bees most moisturizing offerings. “I’ve been up in Toronto for a while and it’s been very cold and dry, so I really used a lot of the Burt’s Bees Hand Salve,” says Bellisario. Meanwhile, Schilling’s MVP is its Multipurpose Ointment. “I was just on a job and everybody was really chapped, so we were using it every single day.”
The actresses have long tried to stick to planet-friendly beauty regimens in their personal lives, though Schilling admits at times it can be challenging.
“It’s not always easy, but I try really hard to be as conscious as I can about what I am consuming and how I am consuming it,” she says. “For a while, I fell victim to the mindset of, ‘If it’s just one person, does it really make that much of a difference?’ but I do know that I can make a difference, even if it’s just by choosing to spend my money, with a company that values sustainability.”
