You don’t have to leave the house. Pretty much ever. In 2017 there are literally thousands of subscription services available, many to New Zealanders. Whether it is the more traditional newspaper or magazine subscriptions, or a streaming platform like Netflix or Spotify or a food or meal delivery like My Food Bag, if you want it, there is probably a subscription service for it.
Take, for example, 5,000 New Zealanders who have bamboo toothbrushes delivered to their home every month (Toothcrush delivers eco-friendly toothbrushes to your door every month from $25 - toothcrush.co.nz). And forgetting to buy a new toothbrush monthly looks to be a world wide problem – with Toothcrush expanding into Australia and with interest in Hong Kong, India, Iran, Canada and USA. Toothbrushes? Who would have thought.
