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.
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.
The store features a wide range of organic (Certysis certification), local and/or fair-trade food, household and hygiene products, all packaging-free or in reusable packaging such as glass jars.
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.
Regular members own one or more shares, can vote and be elected to the BD, can get a return on their investment and are invited to special events.
Active members have the same rights and benefits as regular members, but in addition volunteer 2 hours per month and receive special discounts and a starter package.
