What is unpackaged?

Unpackaged is a new way to shop for everyday items, without single-use plastic.
All items come in reusable, refillable and durable packaging which we collect, clean and reuse.

How it works

Unpackaged is a package-free system where you can shop for everyday essentials in packaging that you can refill or return, online or in-store.
We clean and refill used containers to eliminate single-use plastic from your home, once and for all.

step 1

Shop for products with the U logo at a store near you or online. Pay a small fully refundable container deposit with the cost of the product.

Step 2

Once used, you can choose to return your empty container to any of our partner locations, or refill your container in-store and save. We also pick up any empty containers in your U-basket before your next online delivery.

step 3

Once your empty container is returned, you will have your container deposit refunded in 3-5 days. We clean, refill and reuse these containers to divert it from landfill.
It’s that easy!

Unpackaged Eco has an awesome online selection, I use the dish and Handwash – great product that’s good for the environment in packaging that is refillable and looks great on my bench top!

Such an awesome concept. Great products that reduce plastic waste and provide an affordable alternative. I really hope this gets up. Looking forward to stores much closer to me.
