It is gonna be a zero waste shop in Zürich. Therefore I would like to have a logo and a flyer/document with pictures that shows the negative impact of plastic on the environment. Other pictures also need to be showing healthy food, bulk food, homemade food and hygiene product.
On the logo, I would like to have something something simple but with (a) letter(s) replaced by an icon (e.g. the "o" in kolibris coud be replaced by a jar).
The choice of the name is linked to this story : [login to view URL]
The project more in details :
The project is a shop that offers products without packaging or with fully recycled/recyclable packaging. The aim is to give consumers the opportunity to purchase their groceries while being more respectful of the environment. The reduction of plastic waste and useless packaging as well as a different way of buying than the conventional grocery shopping is the heart of the concept.
The idea is to favor unprocessed or little processed products in order to restore to food all its nobility and its subtlety. We also count on the reduction of food waste, since people can buy food in bulk and therefore choose the quantity that suits them, without having to comply with conventional packaging.
The offer will be divided into categories:
Food products will preferably come from seasonal, organic, and local agriculture/production. When one of these criteria can not be met, the choice will be made on the one with the lowest ecological footprint. If the product is not considered essential, it will simply not be offered. Products imported from more distant countries (coffee, tea, chocolate, some fruits, etc.) will have to come from fair trade and be organic.
Non-food products will be certified without unhealthy and unsafe components (preservatives, dyes, etc.) and will be divided into several categories:
Sustainable products to promote reuse and longevity. They will preferably come from local production.
The cleaning products will be limited to basic products, to favor the "homemade" and a limited range of products ready to use.
Hygiene products and cosmetics will be limited to basic products, to promote the "homemade" and some offers of products ready for use.
In order to be fully aware of the company's vision, the local can also be used for mini-conferences, discussions and workshops related to topics such as waste reduction, food and eating habits, respect of the environment, climate, upcycling, etc.
