Ecover has acquired San Francisco-based eco-friendly cleaning brand Method.
It said the tie-up would create the world’s largest green cleaning company, with collective sales of more than $US200m (£126m) and 300 staff.
Both will continue as separate brands but will work together on innovation and R&D to attract new consumers into the green cleaning and personal care market.
The combined product range and global distribution reach would ensure that there was a worldwide platform for both brands, Ecover said.
