The 'Package Free' shop was recently opened as an online shop and pop-up store destination in New York City that offers a variety of zero waste goods without packaging.

Like many other stores, the shop offers a wide variety of personal and home care items, but what sets the pop-up apart is that there is little to no packaging in sight. Since it is estimated that the average American produces more than four pounds of trash per day, Package Free helps to bring awareness to the issue, and empower consumers to make alternative choices when it comes to consuming a variety of goods.

Package Free was created by fashion designer Daniel Silverstein, who only uses discarded fabric to make new clothes, and Lauren Singer of the Trash is for Tossers blog and The Simply Co.
