Milena Glimbovski is co-founder and owner of both Original Unverpackt. She studied at the Berlin University of the Arts and worked in communications before deciding to revolutionise sustainable food retail. Wanting to find a new solution to the old problem of packaging waste, a new idea was born – a supermarket free from disposable packaging. Original Unverpackt first opened its doors in September 2014.
Original Unverpackt is a small supermarket completely free from disposable packaging. The products are organic, sourced locally and range from everyday supplies like fruit, vegetables and cleaning products over to skin creams and vodka. The opening of Original Unverpackt inspired many people around the world to join the movement and open up further zero waste shops.
