Ocean Plastic

Posted by  ·  November 5, 2012  ·  Last Updated: May 23, 2016

As if Method doesn’t already do enough to keep our bodies #cleanhappy they are now working to clean up our oceans!

Introducing the world’s first bottles made with a blend of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic. That truly is people against dirty!

Our plastic trash is being swept away in ocean currents and is landing in a huge swirling vortex. I mean HUGE, this mass of plastic in our ocean is TWICE the size of the state of Texas. Fish in the middle depths of the northern pacific ocean are ingesting as much as 24,000 tons of plastic each year. Every year, at least one million sea birds and 100,000 sharks, turtles, dolphins and whales die from eating plastic.

This gray bottle is a big deal! Through this new innovative use of recovered ocean plastic, Method is showing how we  can tackle environmental problems!

We all play a role in protecting our oceans.  I am thankful that Method is setting this wonderful example and doing their part to make this world more beautiful and safe for my little beauty and yours!



Disclosure: This is a sponsored post, however all ideas and opinions are my own.  I truly have fallen in love with every single product (The Smarty Dishwasher Tablets are amazing) I have tried and am awed by Method’s commitment to the safety of our bodies and environment!

    This is a genius idea and for such a good cause too.

    The amount of rubbish that i see out at sea when im on the water for weeks at a time (im a fisherman by trade) is astounding.

    Good to see that the rubbish is being recycled into something very useful such as soap.

    I didn't realize plastics were a problem in the ocean other than the fact that we were told to cut our soda can holders. I am grateful to Method for doing something about this problem. I love the look of the bottle too.

    I saw a documentary on ocean plastic and it was so sad. I'm so glad to see Method doing something about it. I already use and love Method and now I can't wait to try out this new product!

    Why aren't more companies like Method! They just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and guess what that translate to= me buying their products! Thanks Method for being such a leader in this sort of business ethics! It means a lot to me and my family and so many others!
