Our Green Stripes
Bicycle Delivery
We don't believe in being stuck in traffic. We don't believe in stuffing trucks with diesel. We don't believe in double-parking, and adding to the congestion of Manhattan.

What we do believe in is safe, human-powered transport. So we dispatch a fleet of safe, friendly, time-obsessed bicycle delivery people to bring you whatever you want. Obsessively fast.

Max Delivery Reusable Bags
Another thing we'd like to reduce is that landfill contaminant: the disposable bag. Say the word, and we'll tote your order to you in a Max Delivery Reusable Bag. Introduced in 2007, these hypoallergenic, machine-washable, non-toxic fabric bags have reduced our overall plastic usage dramatically. Just return your bag(s) with your next delivery and they can be re-used, cutting waste down to zero.

Paper Bags
While we would love it if everyone participated in our reusable bag program, we understand it is not for everyone. To minimize our impact on the environment, Max Delivery only uses paper bags that use at least 40% recycled materials and are made from 100% renewable forest fiber, certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (www.sfiprogram.org).

Our paper bags are recyclable, even compostable, so you don't have to worry that they will be lying around for thousands of years before they bio-degrade.

Recycling (of course!)
We are aggressive recyclers of all cardboard, paper, glass, and plastic products.
