It seems like Mother Nature is a tad angry these days. And can you blame her? We've been mighty bad friends. Time to turn the tide. We're not looking to politicians to change things. That could take forever. Instead, companies like Method are working to clean up the oceans in clever integrated ways.

As a Method Maven, I'm thrilled to share the scoop on the brand and the ground-breaking efforts they have in place make world cleaner, better smelling and more design-friendly.

My latest finds in my quest to "Clean Happy"? The Method Ocean Plastic soap. My sink has never been happier. The Method Ocean Plastic 2-in-1 Dish + Hand Soap promises to clean dishes AND clutter.

But it's not just about saving space. It's also about saving the ocean. This is the first commercial product ever to be made of ocean plastic. To find out the process (yes, you'll want to show this to the kids) check out this video:

It is estimated that several million tons of plastic pollutes our oceans every year causing serious damage to our environment. Trash and plastic accumulate in the ocean creating massive garbage gyres; one is currently larger than the size of Texas! Method dreamed up a bottle that draws attention to the problem while also cleanin up the seas. The bottle is a blend of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic. I think it looks really hip and modern--the texture really jumps out!

It's a work in progress. Over the past year and half, Method employees and local beach cleanup groups have hand-collected more than one ton of plastic from the beaches of Hawai'??i to create the new Ocean Plastic bottles. Ocean Plastic soap will only be available at Whole Foods in the US and online at Methodhome.com.

Fun Fact: The Ocean Plastic bottle design is inspired by a sea urchin, and the dark gray color is actually the natural color of recovered plastic after it's been melted down and molded.
