Zach Mortice of Line//Shape//Space compares railcar manufacturer George Pullman to the Method founders, Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry. Ryan and Lowry sought to establish a center for manufacturing in the historic Pullman neighborhood. Pullman is known for provoking an epic strike that hindered the rail industry during the late 1800’s. Unlike Pullman, the Method founders have created a “do-good” company, producing sustainable products. Method’s soap ingredients are assessed across five measures and certified nontoxic and non harmful by the Cradle to Cradle Certified program.
