Method has come a long way since its early days in San Francisco. The detergent company first aimed at transforming a traditionally toxic industry by developing environmentally-friendly products. It is now setting a green manufacturing standard with its Soapbox, a facility designed by Cradle to Cradle pioneer William McDonough + Partners. From 100-percent renewable energy to the world’s largest rooftop farm and a zero-landfill goal, sustainability has been addressed from all angles. Such a clear commitment to sustainability is a smart business strategy, if a recent international study by advertising giant Havas is any indication. We also hope it inspires others to follow suit.
