What These Two German Women Did With a Grocery Will Blow Your Mind

I pride myself on recycling more than I throw away, but what these two German women are doing in Berlin might help make waste a thing of the past. This is what every grocery store in the world should look like!


Berlin grocery store, Original Unverpackt, is an experiment in shopping.  They sell upwards of 350 products dispensed from refillable containers, while some of the liquids come in bottles with deposits on them.  The store creates zero waste and the customer is able to purchase exactly as much as he or she needs, which contributes to less waste at home.

Sara Wolf and Milena Glimbovski crowdfunded the store and, driven by the idea to do “something impossible,” have established a way to economically sell food without contributing to the huge amounts of municipal waste caused by food packaging.
