Adam Lowry and Eric Ryan
Clean and green, method was begun in 1999 by Bay Area chums, Eric Ryan & Adam Lowry, with an aim to create totally biodegradable, environmentally sound cleaning products. In just over 5 short years, they seem to have succeeded.
As readers may have noticed, many of the Apartment Therapy bloggers have a crush on Method cleaning products. We like their sleek packaging, fresh scent, and eco-friendly charm. The added bonus is that Method has a sense of humor about being green and keeping clean, and since it's spring cleaning month, we though it was time to add them to our store archive.
Method Home has become a fairly mainstreamed product line that is available at Target, Lowes, and other major stores. You probably don't have to go to the online store to purchase Method products, but it's always an option for those inclined to shop from a desk chair. Plus, there's a "schwag" category on the website that includes books, gift sets and T-shirts. Our favorite tee says that Method "cleans like a mother". Indeed.
The Method Home website is simple, clean and easy to navigate, just as you would expect it to be. The site also features a blog for "people against dirty" to unite and share favorite products, cleaning tips, pretty bathrooms, and outreach events. For example, recently Method teamed up with Goodwill in NYC to gather (and wash!) used clothing donations.
A few more noteworthy nuggets on the Method Home online store . . . you can find a store in your area that stocks Method and you can snag a $2 coupon towards the new power packed detergent. The on-line products cost the same as what you would pay in most stores and there is free shipping for orders over $75. We especially like the bundled products because (just like your bundled media package) these products cost less when bought in a cluster. Plus, the packages make great gift sets for new moms or homeowners.
With Method often getting lots of mentions from readers when we publish best products posts, it looks like you can't go wrong in the fight against grime with Method multi-purpose spray cleaner in your tool belt.
