The Roots of Celery
The name "Celery" plays off of the unrelated Latin word Celeritas, which means speed; because we bring "snail mail" up to speed.
But that sounded more like medication than an easy to use email system, so we chose "Celery" instead.
We feel that our snappy, memorable name whimsically captures the down-to-earth nature of our company.
The Inspiration Behind Celery
Celery was inspired by family and friends who don't use computers. We wanted to satisfy our mutual desire to communicate through email, along with their wish to do this without a computer.
So we invented a computer-free email system, and set it up for a few family members who guided our efforts to make it as simple and easy-to-use as possible ...and Celery was born.
The Premise of Our Service
We believe that interpersonal communication is as vital to human life as air, shelter, water and food. When we are disconnected from family and friends, when our social interactions decline, our lives begin to lose meaning.
Our simple, two-way communication system supports closely knit, multigenerational relationships. And when we communicate with loved ones, our hearts are nourished and our spirits restored.
