dish + hand soap – OCEAN PLASTIC
let’s get plastic out of our oceans
not only does the naturally derived, biodegradable formula in our odor-eliminating 2-in-1 dish + hand soap pull double duty getting your digits and dishes clean, it’s also packaged in the world’s first bottles made with a blend of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic. even cooler than that, the ocean plastic used to make these bottles was collected by method employees. true story. learn more about ocean plastic.
if we had a signature scent, it would probably be this. sweet water is like a cool splash of grapefruit + lemon leaves wrapped in watery petals of star jasmine + lily of the valley. it’s rumored that water from the fountain of youth smells similarly.
