Welcome to Unpackaged – we are an organic refill grocery, café & bar.
We believe that a lot of packaging is unnecessary so we’ve removed it; just bring your own containers and reuse them each time you shop.
Unpackaged was founded in 2006 by Catherine Conway in the belief that there was a better way to sell products without unnecessary packaging. The dream was to set up a beautiful shop that made it really easy for customers to come & refill all their daily essentials.
The Islington shop opened in November 2007 and, after 5 successful years, the new Unpackaged shop, café & bar in Hackney opened its doors in December 2012.
Alongside our daily activities, we also offer consultancy to large & small businesses, to help them go ‘Unpackaged’.
Unpackaged was set up with in collaboration with our designers, Multistorey, Portobello Business Centre, The Hub, Unltd, Striding Out, Sustain, Stone Theatre who generously allowed us to recycle their marble offcuts for our gorgeous bar & our carpenter Andrew Roddis – do have a look at their websites.
