Home Delivery Services: Shopping in the Days of Social Distancing

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Delivery Man with boxes. Home delivery ServicesOnce upon a time, home delivery services were a luxury afforded to those privileged individuals with cushy incomes. However, with experts firmly recommending social distancing and self-isolation as the strongest measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19, home delivery services have become essential for everyone, across income levels. Once we get past the shock of remaining inside our homes for an indefinite period of time, the operational part of the brain starts racing: how will we perform basic tasks like grocery shopping when we are quarantined? How can we still participate in supporting businesses that are aligned with our values around environmental, social and nutritional sustainability?

As the war against COVID-19 wages on, our awareness of the struggles small business owners and entrepreneurs face in an economy during quarantine is also heightened. Wanting to do my part in supporting the people behind these businesses and the economy (which we all need to remain strong), I turned to social media, inquiring with friends and colleagues about sustainability-centered* local businesses I could support during these unstable times. As a result, I was able to connect to an awesome list of goods and services being provided by small businesses throughout Switzerland.
