Burt Shavitz, the eccentric, beekeeping co-founder of Burt’s Bees, detached from his skincare empire decades ago, reaping virtually nothing from the company's financial success. Despite that, Burt remains contractually obligated to be the face of his former company. This insightful portrait takes you into the paradox of Burt, who represents a billion-dollar brand while continuing to live in a renovated turkey coop in the backwoods of Maine. You’ll laugh out loud and in the end look differently at the brand of every product you use.
