Method Guys Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry on G Living’s Room 101
What is the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the word dirty? Sexy Hot? Madonna? Maybe you visualize old rich men with half naked 20 something girls. What ever popped into your dirty little mind, I bet it wasn’t soap. When the guys at Method (the modern green soap company) think about dirty, they think of nothing but soap and how to make it cleaner, greener and look sexier. Yes sexier, so some of your dirty thoughts where on the right track.
It is this type of clean sexy thinking, that enabled the Method Guys (Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry) to build the 7th fastest growing company in the United States, and the fastest growing company in California. The fastest growing company in California, the home of Apple Computer, and a valley full of tech geeks popping out the latest electronic gadgets that will power our homes and do all the thinking for us, beat out by a couple of guys making soap in their bathtub? Come on, really?! Well according to Adam, that is exactly correct and they fully intend to keep growing their business at record speed, while continuing the path to make their company and their products even greener.
Why is running a green soap company a big deal? Well, if you look at their competition, you quickly realize these guys are not only making a green company, they are revolutionizing how the standard cleaning products are made. Leaving behind the heavy chemical based products and the mindset the produced those products in the first place, and in the process, they are turning the entire industry on it’s head.
Your standard floor cleaners, soaps, dusters, furniture polishes, glass cleaners and bleaches are packed full of chemicals that do more harm then good. They contribute to all the chemical build up in our environment, oceans and in the air you breath. Take that bleach you are so in love with – according to Adam it is the number one reason for calls to the poison control center, and it doesn’t even remove your dirt, just the color. So those lovely Tea stains are just now in disguise and your sink is not really clean at all.
So why am I writing about Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry , the two founders of Method? Well, because we were lucky enough to have both of them here in the studio for two in-depth conversation in our ROOM101 and on the famous G LIVING Couch. The shows will be online in a few weeks, so keep an eye out for them and make sure to watch all the shows here on G LIVING.
