Value Proposition Design: Zero Waste Supermarket

Founders Sara Wolf and Milena Glimbovski of Original Unverpackt (OU) say there is a rising demand for products and services that deal with sustainability and that people demand alternatives to the “abundant” handling of resources. When the two started in 2014, their zero waste supermarket was financed with €100.000,- crowdfunding money that enabled them to open their first store in Berlin. Celebrating their first year in business, they look back at serving 120 customers on a daily basis and managing to save significantly on packaging with the product groups milk, tomatoes and quinoa as frontrunners.

Changing from decades of linear thinking into circular is hard; where to begin and how to follow through.

What to think of a beer brewer that adds yeast to his wastewater to ensure a better fermentation thereby producing more biogas and cleaner residual water. Or a wine maker that is looking for ways to make good use of his vine cuttings by experimenting with solutions such as “biochar”; producing charcoal in the orchard and adding it to the soil to make it more productive.

Fueling Your Circular Economy Business Model Canvas

Circular economy is seen as a demanding change. Due to natural resource constraints, corporations are more inclined to move from a traditional, linear approach towards a circular one.
