It recent came to our attention that Good Human blog had begun a post called Method vs. Seventh Generation - let the battle begin, and while I am appreciative of the opening to good deep dialogue it did raise questions.
My role here is the Director of Corporate Consciousness. Odd title and yet, fun job. So, my job is about finding the right question - be Socratic - so that we all can move our "know" (consciousness) to deeper more significant levels, where we can see the whole in everything we do in the particulars of the moment.
So, my first line of questions about this blog post focuses on the very old idea of war...why war as the first line of framing? is it really about "Method vs. Seventh Generation - let the battle begin!" could it be about good ole deep down dialogue? what do people/consumers like and not like and want, etc etc from both companies?
We welcome the dialogue - our hope is to know what is working, and what we can do to "be better", to provide the best product(s), to have our products make a difference to those who choose us. I imagine Method also wants this level of dialogue. I do not see a we against them scenario . I do not see Method as our enemy. People here at 7th Gen know the guys at Method and have a huge respect for them...
So, can we change it to Method AND Seventh Generation - let the dialogue deepen?
Thank you Good Human for the space to open thoughts...
