Doorstep amenities for the new year!
Cut yourself some slack this year with one of these doorstep services. From meals and laundry to compost, these easy-to use programs available in Buckhead and beyond will help take to-do’s off your 2023 list.
The monthly subscription-based compost pick-up service provides one clean 4-gallon bin to fill with food scraps, including meat and dairy, and picks it up weekly ($39 per month) or bi-weekly ($29 per month). The full bin is swapped with a clean container each time. Bonus: subscribers automatically earn 25% of the weight of their food scraps in finished compost for their garden or to share with local partners.
Meal kit services are all the rage, but when you don’t feel like lifting a finger, a hand-crafted meal from an award-winning chef that just needs reheating is ideal. Through CookUnity’s website, choose from four, six, eight, 12 or 16 meals per week ranging in price from $10.39 to $12.69 per meal, depending on the frequency. Next, select specific meals or let CookUnity do it for you. Each delivered dish comes chilled in a recyclable container with nutritional information, macronutrient ratios and heating instructions.
Sort of like Uber, but for laundry, SudShare is an app-based service that picks up wash from your front step (make sure to separate machine-dry and hang-dry in two bags) and returns it clean and folded the following day. For $1 per pound (pick-up and delivery is free), you can say goodbye to heaps of dirty clothes. Now, if only we could find someone to put it away.
