We maintain in close contact with our participating businesses in order to facilitate a seamless unpackaged-shopping experience. However, in rare cases it might not be possible to shop with your own container e.g. due to staff change. Please note that facilitation of unpackaged-shopping always falls within the responsibility of business owners and/or their employees. Neither rehab republic e.V. nor the official “Einmal ohne, bitte”-label ambassadors bear any responsibility in that regard. Please let us know which shop is concerned and we will work on a solution with the person in charge.
The initiative`s goal is to spread package-free shopping in supermarkets, restaurants, sandwich bars and more, while decreasing the use of paper and plastic by encouraging customers to bring their own packaging.
We have compiled hygienic rules and legal advice on a short leaflet for you to check.
There are no extra costs as you`ll get to use your own containers. You probably have Tupperware and lunch boxes lying around in your home. Cleaned out jars and bottles from yogurt or tomato sauce can also come in handy.
Businesses that participate in the initiative “Einmal ohne, bitte” are on display in our map and list. What is your neighbourhood shopping spot? If your favourite store or restaurant doesn`t show up, tell us.
We also support spontaneous shopping, because sometimes you`re hungry while being out and about: With a clean backup tote bag in your rucksack stopping by at the bakery is a breeze for you!
You are encouraged to bring jars, bags or boxes that you find at home. If not, there are a bunch of vendors for glass- and stainless steel containers.
The opposite is the case: By decreasing the amount of used packaging material you will save money as a vendor.
