New zero-waste refill and delivery service taking on Amazon expands to Virginia

The Rounds, a zero-waste refill and delivery service for the stuff you use every day, just launched in Virginia.

The Rounds is building the future of sustainable city living by delivering your everyday essentials, like household, personal care and pantry products, in refillable containers with no cardboard or plastic packaging waste. The startup launched in Rosslyn this week and announced plans to continue expanding through Arlington in the next few months, with additional Neighborhood Pickup spots in Crystal City and Alexandria.

Designed as a local, sustainable alternative to Amazon, The Rounds partners with favorites like Compass Coffee and Seylou Bakery to keep your home stocked, with zero-packaging waste.

Since their initial launch to D.C. in August, The Rounds has already seen explosive growth from neighbors across the District.

“We’re super excited by the initial response we’re seeing in D.C. and Virginia,” CEO Alex Torrey said. “Sustainable convenience really matters for people here. Our mission is to make everyday sustainable choices effortless, and at this rate things are looking really good.”
