Oceans are becoming the biggest trash bin on our planet, and it’s not just because of the increasingly amount of plastic-boosted bodies that swim in our seas nowadays. Every year million tons of plastic make their way into the waters, so instead of just complaining someone thought you could make a good use of it. Method employees gathered in Hawaii but they weren’t looking for a glamorous stay. With the help of local volunteers they hand-collected more than one ton of plastic and turned it into bottles for their soap with the help Envision Plastics. The combination of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic results in a uniquely gray resin.
Interestingly enough, they’ve turned the saddest color in the world into an ingredient for a brighter future.
