Method cleaning products

What is it? Method makes a range of cleaning products available at major retailers in the US, Canada, UK, France and Australia.

What makes it susty? Non-toxic biodegradable ingredients, no animal testing and 100% recycled and recyclable bottles (i.e. no product waste). A variety of other activities and certifications, too many to list here but simply explained here, add to their green cred.

What makes it sexy? On a store shelf full of ugly shouting cleaning concoctions, Method’s simple design and pretty colours are striking. I love the description on their website: “More powerful than a bottle of sodium hypochlorite. Gentler than a thousand puppy licks.” The bottom line is the stuff works, it smells nice and (unlike most cleaning products, strange as this may seem) it’s not poisonous.

My verdict: Method had to come up sooner or later in this blog. Maybe it’s too obvious, almost cliché. I thought everyone knew Method. But I met someone last week who’d never heard of it, and I thought “What the heck. The world needs to know”.

Method is the poster child for being BOTH sexy and susty.

    Hi Daianna, I bought Method a few times without knowing they were “green”. Anyway, I did a quick google search just to try to compare them with Ecover and found this smartklean blog (http://smartklean.wordpress.com/). I haven’t checked the labels myself, but I think they might have a point. The only truly green alternative is probably for us to make our own cleaning products…
