ABOUT THE PROJECT 

What is it about?

Original Unverpack’s team strives for a plastic-free world and unpacked shopping. Since 2014, it is the first zero waste shop in Germany to be a pioneer for sustainable consumption. It has inspired many others to open their zero waste shops (USA, Mexico, Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland and many more!)

 

No garbage dogmatists, but fangirls and fanboys of a conscious, sustainable life. Beyond the zero waste shop, the team also runs an online shop, a magazine and regularly gives workshops on sustainable consumption.
