Interview with Julian Buchwalder, one of the five core members of Basel unverpackt

If you were a food, what would it be and why?

If I were a food, then I would be hulled hemp seeds. Hemp seeds are the optimal balance to our daily diet, as they are full of valuable proteins and unsaturated fats. For agriculture hemp cultivation offers many advantages.

What is your recipe for success?

Our recipe for success is clearly that we offer unpackaged food. This has many advantages for the customer: the customer can buy the quantity he actually needs and does not have to buy a 500g package just because there is no 300g package.

What distinguishes your company from others in your industry?

Unlike other stores that offer unpacked goods, we are a cooperative. This means that we do not have an owner or managing director, but core members and co-operatives who together have the same owner rights and therefore also discuss decisions together. A shop without hierarchy. Our aim is not to get rich with our store, but to spread the philosophy of packaging-free shopping.

What is the best seller in your shop at the moment?

The straws made of chrome steel are very popular. These drinking straws have the advantage that they don’t end up in the garbage like normal plastic straws. In fact, they work for years and can be cleaned hygienically with a brush. These drinking straws are not only better for the environment, but also for us, as normal plastic straws lead to microplastics getting into the blood.

Are there any items in your product range that are particularly popular as gifts?

Costumers like to gift our drinking bottles, whether glass or steel, to others. Something that we specifically offer as a gift are our vouchers, with which you can gift a shopping experience in Basel unverpackt.

What are your wishes for Basel unverpackt?

For our future, we would like there to be an unpackaged shop in every borough. People like to shop locally. It’s important that the walk is not too long, especially if costumers come to the shop with containers. Our aim is not to achieve the highest possible revenue with Basel unverpackt, but to protect the environment. That’s why further unpackaged shops from other owners or cooperatives would be in our interest too.

What question are you often asked?

Which oil is particularly suitable for heating, which one for baking? Basically, heating oil is always a disadvantage, because valuable vitamins and aromas are lost and the oil becomes difficult to digest. The solution is to cook without oil and only add the oil to the food afterwards. Coconut oil is well suited for baking because it mainly consists of saturated fats and is therefore less sensitive to heat than olive oil, for example.
