Soap-maker Method‘s upcoming “sea minerals” home cleaning product will be packaged in bottles made from recycled plastic. The soap bottle partly reuses ocean debris collected from the beaches of Hawaii, as well as recycled plastic from other sources. Wired reports that 3,000 pounds of plastic has been picked up off Hawaii’s shores by Method employees and volunteers from Sustainable Coastlines and the Kokua Hawaii Foundation.
