Take a stroll through your local supermarket and you can instantly see why landfills are overflowing at alarming rates. Everything is covered in cardboard, plastic, and paper. Original Unverpackt believes there is a better way and used a crowd funding proposal to prove their point. They created a grocery store where nothing is prepackaged and they offer no packaging. The store’s aisles are filled with bulk food bins, chutes, and shelves. You bring your own containers and bags to buy from this unique store.
While at first this concept may seem an oddity, you can be certain it will expand. California is in the process of outlawing plastic bags in grocery stores and forcing shoppers to use reusable bags. The next step could easily be breaking foods loose from their packaging which contributes far more to the landfills than plastic bags. Are you ready to buy your groceries naked?
