The Rounds is a zero-waste refill and delivery service for the stuff you use every day. We keep your kitchen, bathroom, and vanity stocked with local favorites and sustainable basics.
What does “zero-waste” mean?
Zero-waste means that we deliver all your items free of packaging waste — so no more boxes inside of boxes. They are delivered in reusable containers and bags. When you’re done, you just leave your empties on your doorstep, and we’ll swap them out for new ones! Basically, like a modern day milkman, but for everything.
Please note that for some items, for health and safety purposes, we cannot yet deliver them in reusable containers. For those, we make sure that they’re easily recyclable or compostable! That way, nothing ends up in a landfill or incinerator.
What is the The Rounds Psychic Home Manager?
We gaze into our crystal ball to know exactly what you need right before you need it, so you never run out. Your Psychic Home Manager is a combination of a predictive algorithm and a human-touch that predicts delivery cadence and quantities for each Refill, so you never run out.

Delivery & Refill
When do you deliver?
We designate a set Refill Day every week for your neighborhood. Hit us up to find out your neighborhood’s Refill Day!
Woah, weekly? That feels like a lot...
Don’t worry, it’s not! We’re in your neighborhood every week making the rounds on our e-bikes, so this just ensures that we’re here when you need us, and you’re always stocked with the basics you already use every day — like TP and hand soap. You can set each item to come at the frequency that works best for you.
How much does delivery cost?
There are no delivery fees. All weekly refills are included with your membership.
What is Reverse Logistics?
Our members place their empty containers outside their doors and we come pick them up, reversing the direction of conventional one way shipping channels. Almost all consumer products today move along distribution and fulfillment channels that resemble straight lines. Retailers and delivery services ship to consumers, who in turn dispose of the product and the product’s packaging. The Rounds is turning those straight lines into “closed-loop” circles through the use of reusable containers. Reverse Logistics is the process of closing the loop.
What do I do with my containers?
You just leave them outside your door for us on Refill Day, or wherever you receive your bundle! No need to return them if you’re not ready yet, just leave them for us when you’ve got empties.
Which containers are refillable?
Please return any glass containers, jars, or bottles, as well as any cotton or canvas bags. When we pick them up, they’ll be washed and sanitized before being refilled and sent back out for their next Refill Day.
How does my stuff get to me?
Our team delivers bundles on e-bikes from a local Neighborhood Refillment Center. We make the rounds weekly on a neighborhood Refill Day.
Who will refill and deliver my stuff?
Our employees are background-checked, bonded and insured. We’re friendly folks that live in your neighborhood. We prep your refill in our hyper-local Neighborhood Refillment Center (“NRC” for short). We send you a text when we’re on our way and another text when we drop off your refill bundle at your door.
What if I run out of products?
You won't! If our fancy-pants predictive algorithm is ever wrong, a real human will make it right. Just text us at 855-674-1999 and you’ll see.
How do I return a product?
If you’re having an issue with your product, or no longer need a product you ordered, just text us at 855-674-1999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of it.
