when you work at method you get three “care days” that you can use to volunteer as you wish. it’s like a gift that lets you give back. because aren’t those the best kind?
where we went: forget me not farm, santa rosa, california
what they do: located on the grounds of the sonoma humane society, forget me not farm uses rescued animals and organic farming as healing therapy for children who are victims of abuse and neglect.
what we did: team method—susan, anne, merany, lindsay, fred, chrissy, henry + jennifer k.—spent the day painting bird houses and building chicken coops. the farm was scheduled to receive 100 chickens the next day. the chickens had been rescued from factory farms where their beaks were lasered off and they needed to be rehabilitated. team method built the coops so the chickens would have a comfortable place to stay until they could find their happy forever homes.

it’s that time of year: the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, the grass is greener and people have spring cleaning on the brain. naturally, this is something we at method can all get excited about. so to celebrate the season of de-cluttering and re-organization, we decided to do some spring cleaning of our own. but not the kind you might expect.
last week, 11 PAD (that’s people against dirty® for those new to this blog) signed up for 1-day and 3-day Project Juice cleanses. we admit it wasn’t all sunshine and lemonade. and we have learned a few important lessons in the process, like how enough green juice without your daily coffee intake can make you feel high—or at least really lightheaded. but in the end we all survived. and some of us are even talking about another round. after all, don’t your insides need a little scrubbing, too?

research shows that doing something nice for someone else increases personal happiness. at method, we care a lot – about the environment, about our co-workers, about being a company we can all be proud of. that’s why through the end of the year, we’re paying it forward. our ‘random acts of kindness’ jar gives us the chance to do something small for someone else. simply draw a random act of kindness out of the jar – whether it’s taking a friend out for coffee or buying someone in need groceries – and boom, you feel better. some of us like the happiness boost so much, we’re coming back day after day to draw another one.
try it at home or at work and let us know what you think.

our modern naturals collection for Target was inspired by the organic patterns and textures found in nature: wood grains, natural stone, fall and winter foliage, and ancient textiles. just in time for fall, we found these simple ideas for incorporating the warm, rustic modern naturals sensibility into your home decor. our silver birch, plumeria, or dulce de leche hand wash would look perfect next to that marble sink, don’t you think?
