Orla Kiely and Method
Have you guys seen this already?
I love Orla Kiely‘s patterns and think that they look great on these Method products. Method are being ever so clever, again, in their branding at the moment. They are really listening and watching what is going on out there with advertorial postings on popular blogs and now this. Good for them I say! And they do make the best eco-friendly/biodegradable products. I would buy these and refill forever… Unfortunately they are only available in the US, anyone fancy posting me some??
I just love great packaging and Method really are a great US company. If you are in the US, you can buy these here. I thought this was pretty cool, a Method Timeline:
2001: method is born and eventually lands its first sale: four cleaning sprays to Mollie Stone’s grocery store in Burlingame, Calif. note method’s primitive early invoicing process, held by adam. also note tie worn by adam. both items have improved over time.
2002: after enlisting designer Karim Rashid to help design packaging, method convinces Target to test its cleaning sprays and dish soaps in 90 stores. seven months later, method launches in Target stores nationwide. (SMART!)
2003: method debuts its first hand wash in the brand’s iconic teardrop-shaped bottle, which becomes one of method’s most popular products and a best-smeller.
2004: method launches the first triple-concentrated (3x) laundry detergent in the US mass market.
2005: method launches in Canada and the United Kingdom.
2006: Inc. 500 ranks method as the 7th fastest growing private company in America. And PeTA announces eric and adam as its Men of The Year.
2007: method becomes a founding B Corporation, formally making social and environmental change a company objective. check out what it means to be a B.
2008: method begins making bottles from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic.
2009: method becomes one of the first Cradle to Cradle endorsed companies, with 37 Cradle to Cradle certified products at launch, among the most of any company in the world (now up to 60 certified products and counting).
2010: method launches method laundry detergent with smartclean technology™ – a powerful, patent-pending, plant-based detergent that’s 8x concentrated and packaged in a handheld pump bottle.
Have a wonderful week and let us know what you think?
