I've long been a fan of Method. The San Francisco–based company has been leading the charge for years on keeping toxins out of their cleaning products, and their naturally derived, fresh-scented formulas actually motivate you to clean.
Sweet Water and Sea Minerals Dish + Hand Soap: $4.99. Recently the company took their planet-friendly values a step further by launching the first-ever packaging made from ocean plastic—collected from the shores of Hawaii by Method employees! Call it beach-to-bottle. Some of the plastic collected from the shores of Hawaii.
The soap comes in two coast-inspired scents, and the bottles have cute sea urchin–inspired spines. Learn more about ocean plastic and Method's efforts here. And let's all applaud the company that keeps toxins from our countertops and waste from our shores.
