Method, the brand you know and love for great soap that’s eco-friendly on packaging and materials. Yes, the same people that actually went out of their way to write a fantastic design book about how they did it called The Method Method (seriously, read it if you’re developing a product, it’s got great insights). The gang there have a great new packaging solution where they picked up plastic bottles from the beach in Hawaii and recycled it into packaging (Link from Wired).
The HUGE takeway here is, there are many ecofriendly ways you can do fun things with your packaging materials by sourcing available existing materials. This doesn’t mean what they’ve done is simple, or wasn’t offset by flying their employees to Hawaii to pick up the plastic, but it is a clever step in the right direction to use existing refuse and turn it into useful, original packaging material.
