Original Unverpackt (Original Unpacked) is a new store in Berlin that aims to dispense with all unnecessary packaging.
Food and drink is kept in hoppers, jars, bins or bottles, and shoppers can choose pick up just the amount they need, using either their own containers or recycled containers they borrow from the store.
The store founders – Sara Wolf and Milena Glimbovski – say: “No disposable cups, no vacuum-packed vegetables, no plastic bags in cardboard boxes and no Tetra packs.” Wolf, a former UN worker, and Glimbovski, a communications designer, have been working on the concept for the store since November 2012. Earlier this year they launched a Kickstarter project which funded the opening of the Original Unverpackt branch in Berlin’s Kreuzberg.
