Going to market

Unpackaged, a fairly new grocery shop in London, lives up to its namesake. They do not wrap or package any of your items. Instead, you-the-customer bring in your own tupperware, bottles, jars, etc and package it yourself. The price is based upon weight. In return, you get fresh groceries and you reduce the amount of waste in our environment. Like people going to market with baskets and bowls, you-the-customer are armed with your modern containers making a difference. This is a great idea that—like many other ideas about going green and eating healthy—requires us to look back to our roots to find ways to reduce waste and reuse more. Hit the jump for some more images or check out their site.
