THE CONCEPT

OUNI logo website white space 302x150

Organic Unpackaged Natural Ingredients

The first packaging-free organic grocery store in Luxembourg, OUNI means “without” in Luxembourgish, and also stands for Organic Unpackaged Natural Ingredients. An environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional supermarkets, OUNI allows customers to do their grocery and household shopping while avoiding packaging waste. Instead, customers can fill and weigh their own containers with bulk food products, or purchase items such as milk and yogurt in reusable glass bottles and jars.

NO WASTE

With over 30% of all consumer waste generated from packaging, OUNI gives customers the opportunity to actively live a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

ORGANIC PRODUCTS

The store features a wide range of organic, local and/or fair-trade food, household and hygiene products, all packaging-free or in reusable packaging such as glass jars.

COMMUNITY

Not only a place to shop, OUNI is a community hub, with a café space and regular workshops and events on a range of environmental topics, such as waste prevention, recycling, repair and DIY.

Iwwert mech:

Wou ech während e puer Joer an der kanadescher Arktis gewunnt hunn, weit ewech vum Materialismus an der Surconsommatioun, ass meng gréng Oder esou richteg stimuléiert ginn, an ech hunn geleiert Offall esou gutt ewéi ganz ze vermeiden an déi meescht Haushalts- a Kosmetiksproduite selwer ze maan. Et sinn ënnert anerem Friichte vun dëser Evolutioun déi ech mat Iech an dësem Workshop wäert deelen.

About me:

While I lived for a longer period in the Canadian Arctic, far away from materialism and consumerism, I learned how to no longer produce any trash and how to do my own cleaning products and cosmetics. I will take you on my journey and share with you the fruits of this evolving process.

A propos de moi :

Ayant depuis toujours une fibre verte, j’ai étudié les changements climatiques dans le Grand Nord canadien. Ayant vécu plusieurs années dans l’arctique canadienne, loin du matérialisme, j’ai appris comment vivre sans produire de déchets et à réaliser la majorité de mes produits cosmétiques et ménagers moi-même. Ce sont entre autres les fruits de ce processus en constante évolution que je vais partager avec vous dans cet atelier.

“Plantography” – Creating images with plant ink @ OUNI
Oct 15 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Description

The workshop ‘Plantography’ is about creating images with plant ink.planthography_workshopkvrancken_e2a0406
The Anthotype process uses vegetables like cabbage, beetroots and other plants to create inks that change colors when exposed to sun or other reacting agents (acid/basic solvents like lemon or baking soda).

This process is not only beautiful, but is also environmentally friendly. All the ingredients are natural and can be found locally and there are no synthetic ingredients in the process.

Plantography will spark your curiosity and will help you to understand some basic environmental science principles in a creative way.

Every participant will create an artefact that can then be brought at home.

Participation fees

Regular price 50 €
Price for OUNI active members 25 €

Registration

Places are limited.
Please write an e-mail to info@socialmatter.eu indicating if you are an OUNI active member or not.
You will then receive the information and bank details. Your place is safely booked as soon as you send the proof of payment by e-mail (a scan or screenshot would suffice).
