________________ Can Burt?s Bees Turn Clorox Green? ________________ to: John Repogle, CEO of Burt?s BEEs from: Josie Chung, Marketing MAnager of Burt?s BEEs subject: Burt?s Bees cooperation with Clorox Marketing Strategy date: 10/9/2012 ________________ Natural skin care products with artificial bleach products are the concepts of the two extremes, but now Clorox and Burt?s Bee need to survive under one roof. After late 2007, Clorox bought Burt's Bees, one who make the eco-unfriendly bleach, and the other pursuit of full of natural skin care products, they become the same family company, although each retains its brand running.
