    sea minerals

    it seems like every time fresh + clean get together, something wonderful happens. uniting in this watery blend of bergamot, lemon + rosemary, with crisp marine notes is no exception. it’s like a mini-vacation to the seaside, minus the sand in your crevices.


    sweet water™

    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.

Good Job

This is my product of choice going forward, simply because it will help clean up beaches and oceans.

I shared on Facebook and you should to!

Method, if you send me some samples I will convert my friends :_

I can't stop talking about this

Ok, I haven’t actually used this product yet, but since I found out about it yesterday, I haven’t stopped talking about it. I am SO impressed by method’s innovative approach towards reducing ocean plastics pollution. I have already asked my work and my local co-op to carry this product. The plastics problem is near and dear to my heart. Thank you for taking on this important issue with fresh (and clean) eyes!!!

This is an awesome idea!

Go Method! Yes, let’s get all that plastic out of the oceans, out of the wildlife that depend on the oceans to survive (or to live in) and back into responsible hands. I’m very impressed! :)

Why is this limited edition? I would buy it for all my liquid handsoap needs and take it to work to be used there. This recycling idea is desperately needed on a large scale. But kudos to you for this important baby step!

Great Soap, Size Okay

I really love the way the soap cleans, smells and feels. I would give it four starts but I wish you could buy this in a larger re-fill bag.
