unpackaged: a grocery without the packaging

Beunpackaged was founded in 2006 by Catherine Conway in London. Her belief that there is a better way to sell food, a simpler and more ecological way without all the frivolous packaging. At the Beunpackaged location in London, shoppers are able to bring their own containers with them and shop essentially everything in the bulk style.

Unpackaged buys in bulk from fair trade companies, giveing preference to suppliers who are cooperatives or social enterprises, and does packaging swaps with smaller suppliers to minimize unnecessary waste.

They also offer a service to eco minded companies and those who sign up get their washing-up liquid, soap, toilet paper, tea, sugar and other non-perishables refilled with environmentally-friendly products.

Unpackaged: 42 Amwell Street, EC1R 1XT
