The Rounds, DC’s New Zero-Waste Delivery Service, Locates in MVT
Tuesday August 3, 2021
MVT extends a warm welcome to our newest neighbor, The Rounds, a zero-waste delivery service that is hyper-focused on being the local, sustainable alternative to other big-named online distributors. With the increase in online shopping for everyday essentials during the COVID pandemic, we are seeing an increase in package waste that is ending up in our landfills, oceans, and rivers.
Alex Torrey and Byungwoo Ko founded the company in 2019 with the belief that convenience can be sustainable and sustainability can be convenient. Strategically headquartered at 460 K Street NW, adjacent to the new K Street protected bike lane, this location will be the jumping-off point for their e-bike delivery model.
Learn more about The Rounds in the “In Their Own Words” interview with co-founder Alex Torrey.
