glorification of method

Last weekend Brent and I were in Shoppers and I saw the method line of products. I’ve heard of them and jumped at the chance to buy some of these great-smelling, biodegradible, non-animal-ested cleaning products sold in recycled packaging.
They didn’t have much in-store. We got the Cucumber All-Purpose Cleaner (have used it EVERYWHERE and it works on EVERYTHING and leaves the house smelling great for about 24 hours) and the Cucumber Liquid Dish Soap (haven’t used it yet because of the dishwasher and I haven’t had to hand-wash anything since I bought it).
From browsing online, I see that I want to buy the dish cubes for the dish washer, the Tub & Tile spray, some hand wash, body wash (possibly the lotion too…not sure about that) and the Laundry Detergent. I’ll probably do a big online order of this stuff when I start to run low on the stuff I already have.
They have dryer sheets but there are no notes as to what they are made of. Regular dryer sheets are full of toxins, soaked into a non-biodegradable fabric-like material. I’ve sent them an e-mail for clarification.
[EDIT] Now that I’ve looked at their shipping rates for Canada, I won’t be ordering any online. Shipping for $40 worth of product is $43 (USD I assume) not to mention whatever duty fees will be slapped on. SHEESH! I’ll just shop around the local places that carry it I suppose. But if I can’t find the dishwasher pellet things I may cave and order a bunch of those.
