Smart marketing for good products

It’s been a while since I last wrote, but I guess that’s what happens when you’re less than a month away from moving again…

Anyways, just a quick post on some cool products I checked out this morning.

1. method

I saw an ad for this on Treehugger and was compelled to click. (I usually never click on ads…)

method is made with naturally-derived surfactants. It works by absorbing dirt rather than chemically degrading it. And method is biodegradable so you can clean your home without flushing super-toxic chemicals down the drain into our rivers, lakes and oceans. We’re against that. Dirty doesn’t have to roll downhill.

Check out their website. They’ve got a clean (no pun intended), fresh and witty site with a great grasp on the whole “community”feel.   I’m a sucker for green products (our house tends to smell like vinegar on those cleaning days, so a change to ‘grapefruit pear’ or ‘cut grass’ could be pretty nice. )
2. gDiapers

I don’t mean to freak out family and friends – no babies are on the way! (But I will be attending my first baby shower for a friend this afternoon) 

Anyways, I’ve thought about this concept too – diapers are such a waste. Watch the video here about how they decompose.

Once again, stylish, eco-friendly products with a great web 2.0 website. As for price, I don’t know too much about diapers but the prices don’t seem exorbitant.  Funny though, I did a quick search on Wal-Mart’s site to check out diaper prices and first diaper to pop up? Eco-friendly ones.   Haha, oh my love-hate relationship with Wal-Mart continues….

Anyways, as I’ve said before, I love good products that have value mixed with great marketing.

I think I’ve turned into a yuppie.
