“Our mission at Creative Growth is to understand how everyone is part of the creative community. Method is run by people who value creativity and they value the social good, and those two things came together in this latest limited-edition partnership,” said Tom di Maria, director of Creative Growth. “One of the things that's remarkable about having our artists work with method is that our people, our artists, go to Target and will see these bottles.
