dish + hand soap - ocean plastic

We can recycle plastic containers with 1s and 2s on them, but what about the rest? Millions of tons of plastic make it into our oceans each year, not only making it hard to walk on the sand without stepping on crap, but screwing up our sea life. Volunteers from Kokua Hawaii Foundation (KHF) and Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii (SCH) have teamed up to remove this plastic from Hawaii beaches and recycle it into packaging for a national cleaning product company called Method, which recently released a 2-in-1 hand and dish soap. A portion of the proceeds from soap sales will benefit both KHF and SCH.
