Burt's Bees Natural Launchpad awards 10 winners for annual grant program

Whittled down from 78 applicants, these 10 startups were selected for the accelerator's second cohort.

Burt's Bees and The Clorox Co. recently awarded each of 10 companies a $10,000 grant and a day of networking and mentoring at the Burt's Bees office in Durham, North Carolina. The company states that the founders, Burt Shavitz and Roxanne Quimby, created the grant program as a way to give back and to build a sustainable, innovative ecosystem of like-minded visionaries. 

Much like the inaugural group, a diverse group of brands was selected. Click through to see the winners.
