Zero-waste service taking on Amazon is expanding in Virginia with record growth

The Rounds — a new zero waste delivery service — is expanding their door to door delivery service to 3 new zip codes in Arlington: 22201, 22207 and 22203.

Designed as a local and sustainable alternative to Amazon, The Rounds is a new take on the traditional “milkman” model. After delivering items in reusable containers, they pick up the empties that their Members leave on their doorsteps and drop off a refill.

They partner with local businesses like Compass Coffee and Bethesda Bagels to keep homes stocked with everyday staples and local favorites — all on an autopilot system that they cheekily claim to act as a “psychic home manager.” All you do is set how many rolls of TP you want a week and forget ever having to haul a 24 pack home from the store again.

The Rounds has rapidly expanded across The District and in Virginia, and has no plans of slowing down soon.

“Our mission is to make everyday sustainable choices effortless, for everyone,” says co-founder and CEO Alexander Torrey.

ARLnow readers who sign up by March 31st get 6 months of free refills and deliveries with code ARLNOW.
