    Doing a little research on sustainable packaging for beauty products and learned Burt's Bees has a free program to recycle their product containers through teracycle.  Who knew?  I'm looking for a lip balm in a better package -- anyone have suggestions?

      Thanks for the Burt's Bees info!   Old-fashioned, distinctly un-sexy Chap-Stick used to come in a metal tube; offhand, that's the only non-plastic packaged lip balm I can think of.  Plastic is EVERYWHERE   :-(
