"Right now, we're focused on sustainable home care," said Stu Landesberg, founder and CEO, ePantry. "We play different than big ecommerce. We give you $2 off if you tell us a joke. We include gifts & eco-tips in each box. Our customers are smart and responsible, and we celebrate it. We couldn't be more excited to team up with method, a company with outstanding products and goals that align closely with our own."
"ePantry's personalized experience is a natural fit with method's approach of creating easy and unexpected experiences that make the chore of cleaning a bit fun," said Rob Wiley, Senior Director of Digital, method. "We're excited to continue working together to deliver safe, effective cleaners in a quick and custom experience. We're also excited to share this service with the world, and bring in more people to join us in the fight against dirty."
"ePantry's approach to shopping and ecommerce is refreshingly fun, engaging and personal -- this enables them to give customers a fun and relevant product engagement rather than generic one," said John McAteer, VP of US Ad Sales, Google. "Smart, personalized shopping and merchandising like this is key to the next evolution of ecommerce."

ePantry grew out of a simple phenomenon: we all tend to opt for what's convenient, especially when we're busy. We've all made the last-second run to corner store to pick up a $4 roll of toilet paper... Unfortunately, the easiest option usually isn't best for your family, your wallet, or the planet. ePantry uses technology and a beautiful user experience to replace stressful errands with a service that's fun, economical, that you can feel smart using. www.epantry.com
