I admit it: I am a big sucker for all things green. Tell me your products are phthalate-free, paraben-free, biodegradable and recyclable, and I will happily overlook their prices (often outrageous) and effectiveness (sometimes disappointing). So hooray for Method, the San Francisco company that produces dozens of cleverly designed, environmentally friendly and, in my experience, pretty functional products for home and body. Method's sweetly scented Squeaky Greenbaby wash is, indeed, phthalate-free, paraben-free and biodegradable. The creamy liquid easily washes jelly and butter from hair (my son's, not mine) and leaves skin soft and clean. And did I mention the packaging is recyclable? $7 at grocery stores and mass retailers.
