Are you looking for a more purposeful job or a career change? Do you want to do something good for the environment and end the madness of plastic packaging? Do you want to know how to open your own packaging-free shop?

Then this course was made for you. Step by step you will learn how to open your own packaging-free shop.

Four years ago we had the idea of opening a packaging-free supermarket. That idea became a reality when we first opened Original Unverpackt's doors in September 2014. Since then we have gathered a lot of experience and want to pass it on to you through this course.

What can you expect?

  • the necessary know-how for opening your own packaging-free shop
  • twenty course videos complete with translated English subtitles and documents (German Audio)
  • valuable tips on financing, shop launch and marketing
  • information on researching and choosing suppliers and manufacturers
  • an honest insight into both the advantages and challenges of running your own shop
  • a wide range of materials, such as a financial plan template and list of suppliers
  • access to a facebook group for exchange with other attendees

While this course was created to the best of our knowledge, we unfortunately can't accept any liability for the supplied information. We are trying to provide you with a kick-start into opening your own shop, but unfortunately we cannot do all the work for you, we can only give you tools! Please keep in mind that your country might has a slight different way of handling businesses and supplier relations can be different. Thankfully, we have had students from all over the world using our course to open their own shop!

Thanks for understanding.

Bevor Milena Original Unverpackt gegründet hat, war sie mehrere Jahre in der Werbeindustrie tätig, als sie sich dann entschied ihre Karierre zu ändern und in den Lebensmittel-Einzelhandel einzusteigen. Als sie noch in der Marketingabteilung des Supermarktes Veganz gearbeitet hat, erkannte sie das große Problem. Welches Problem? Verpackungsmüll. Die Lösung? Ein unverpackter Supermarkt. Original Unverpackt eröffnete in 2014 seine Türen und war der erste Supermarkt seiner Art. Seit dem ist viel passiert! Milena darf sich heute mich mehreren Auszeichnungen schmücken, darunter Berliner Unternehmer des Jahres 2018/2019, Forbes 30 under 30 und Goldene Bloggerin. Neben dem ganzen Trubel hat sie 2 Büchtitel unter dem Namen "Ohne Wenn und Abfall", sowie "Einfach Familie Leben" veröffentlicht.

Before founding Original Unverpackt, Milena Glimbovski spent several years working in advertising and then she decided to change careers and dedicate herself to food retailing. Working in the Marketing department for the vegan supermarket chain Veganz allowed her to gain fresh insight to the industry and find new solutions to old problems. The old problem? Packaging waste. The solution? A packaging-free supermarket. Original Unverpackt opened its doors in 2014 and was the first of its kind in Berlin. Since then, Milena has received several awards including Berlin Entrepreneur of the Year 2018/2019, Forbes 30 under 30 and Golden Blogger. Alongside the course she has published 2 books called 'Ohne Wenn und Abfall' and 'Einfach Familie Leben'.

Milena has published a brand new E-Book in 2020!

"The Zero Waste Shop Revolution" is full of great insights and inspirations. Enrolled students exclusively receive a whole chapter of her book to read for free. If you want to read her book you can easily download it through our Online Shop!
