Method started with a desire to make a visible difference.
In 2011, our co-founders India and Steven Korner decided to take a risk and make a change. Experts in product and graphic design, engineering, and the world of commercial leasing, they left their established roles for an industry that needed reimagining.
Here they could build their own product, while building the foundations of their family.
As the Korners travelled around New Zealand in a van selling bins, liners and recycling labels to businesses, they realised something.
Consistently they would see beautiful modern offices with unattractive recycling systems, or bins hidden away in cupboards. Employees were apathetic about recycling; internal company cultures were ignoring the issue of sustainability in the workplace.
It was time for a new Method – a visible, beautiful, and effective system of change.
We believe that better workplace habits create a better world. Every day we’re empowering people to become changemakers, and enhancing the corporate social responsibility of the world’s most influential workplaces.
We are designers
Method was started by two talented product and graphic designers. Design-thinking informs everything we do, from our award-winning recycling bins and recyclable materials and packaging, to our consultative methodology, and company culture. It’s what makes us stand out, and what will never change.
We are sustainability advocates
Every year we help our customers divert millions of kilograms of waste from landfill. Because of what we make, those finite resources can go on to have a circular life – they won’t end up on the streets of our cities, or at the bottom of our oceans.
We are change facilitators
We engineer our products to challenge preconceptions, start conversations within workplaces, and be a visible marker of change.
