zero packaging supermarket is a new generation of supermarket. Every goods in there are packaging free, including powder-type and liquad-type commodities. These supermarkets encourage people bring there own container to collect goods. They make the process in five steps: Tare, Fill, Weigh, Label and Pay. This system design indeed reduces package wastes. However, it reducing customers’ desire for buying. customers need to prepare the containers before shopping and those containers occupy space. For these reasons, our team designed a reusable and foldable shopping to improve the whole shopping experiences in zero packaging supermarket.


There are two methods to pack goods: “The Paper” and“The Sheath”.both of them are put in the pocket on PACKING TO GO. If customers need them, they can easily to take them out and use. PACKING TO GO is foldable, Thats mean, it save space and increase people desire for taking it out.


“The Sheath” is design for powder-type, liquad-type and any other goods needed Sealed storage.It. contain two parts: sealing cable and long bag. Both of them are washable and reusable. It is very easy to use. After you fill goods in the long bag, put the cable at the open-end of bag and roll it few times. and connect two end of cable to make a circle.There are some hooks in the shopping for fixing the position of “The Sheath”.
