About the company

Method works to empower workplace communities to create a more sustainable future. Our goal is to enable organisations around the world to divert over 1 billion kgs of waste from landfills by 2030. We are well on our way to this goal and looking to ramp up our efforts with some exciting new developments over the next several months.

As a certified B Corporation, we believe that better habits create a better world. We are designers. We are sustainability advocates. We are change facilitators. Our bins can be found in some of the UK’s most influential spaces including Atlassian, Canva, Foster + Partners, The University of Melbourne, and The Office Group.

Since our launch in 2015, we have won two Deloitte Fast 50 awards and numerous reputable business awards for emerging business, sustainability, innovation, and design. In 2020, Method was named Brand of the Year in LaCerta's first annual Technology & Marketing Awards in the UK.

Particularly, with an industry-first product being launched this year - there has never been a more exciting time to work at Method.
