I’ve had a company crush on Method ever since I came across a sleekly-designed bottle of their biodegradable hand soap at Target years ago (note: a company crush is like a celebrity crush, except better).
Not only does the SF-based company make eco-friendly and effective home cleaning and personal care products, but they also aim to make their operations as environmentally responsible as possible.
On Thursday, I attended a press event at Method’s headquarters, on the border of Chinatown, to see them unveil a new bottle made from ocean plastic litter and hear government officials discuss how Obama’s American Jobs Act can help small businesses like Method.
Check out my photos from the tour:

The new Method bottle made of reclaimed ocean litter is on the left. The flakes and pellets in the two other bottles show the process of grinding and pelletizing the collected marine debris to make a new bottle.
