The Zero Waste movement – removing the need for packaging entirely

The Zero Waste movement is coming to Sweden, and with it comes WasteLess – Sweden’s first 100% packaging-free supermarket. Instead of focusing on making existing packaging more eco-friendly, this Zero Waste business wants to remove that packaging entirely – both saving the environment and cutting down on costs.

Through a close cooperation with both local and international producers, WasteLess aims to minimize all unnecessary packaging, without having to sacrifice product quality or shelf life.

- In the future, we believe the Zero Waste philosophy will play a big part in how we think about packaging. And being the first supermarket that sells everything in loose-weight, we want to set an example that this is something that can be done.

 Mathias Östlund, Wasteless
