unpicking unpckd: a considered and consistent new identity
we’re excited to share unpckd’s rebrand!
It’s part of our evolution as a small social enterprise, in trying to find the right words and look to express ourselves, as well as consistently and clearly explain what we do and why.
The name ‘unpckd’ had already been well considered at the start – in a nutshell the business was conceived to unpack problems, unpick systems and, in practical terms, deliver unpackaged food. The name is a goodun’ and a keeper.
The ‘out of the box’ logo was a first attempt to visually describe our approach; it seemed fitting to the business name, and was quickly adopted without much deeper thought.
Almost 2 years on, and after many subtly different attempts to encapsulate the business succinctly in any number of words, we’ve spent time (with the amazing Scott & Olivia at Champion Agency) unpicking unpckd to find the right key words and the right visual identity for the brand we have become.
we’re tackling the problem of disposable and excessive consumerism, which is contributing to both irreplaceable depletion of natural resources as well as the acceleration of climate change
to fulfill the needs of global consumerism, we are taking more materials from the planet than it can regenerate, causing irreversible damage to the balance and biodiversity of the natural environment needed to sustain life as we know it.
at the current rate of consumption, by 2030, we will need 2 planet earths to meet our material demands.
our vision is to be a driver to a circular world without everyday waste.
a circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems.
our society has evolved a linear ‘wasteful’ system of take-make-waste; a circular ‘waste-free’ system keeps materials within a make-use-reuse-remake-recycle loop, for the benefit everyone within the limits of our planet.
our purpose is to create less everyday waste
in order to have a material impact on the waste 'problem', we need to think smart as well as big:
- what should an individual be responsible for?
- what can an individual reasonably achieve?
- what collective action can have a significant impact?
whilst ‘zero waste’ is the ideal, ‘less everyday waste’ is achievable.
less everyday waste is the responsible action everyone can take every day.
our mission is to disrupt the way we consume to create less everyday waste
we are active warriors in all aspects of everyday waste that contributes to our impact on our planet: namely, our individual carbon footprint.
you can rely on us to be continually addressing, seeking & informing on ideas about less wasteful ways of consuming within our individual carbon budgets for:
- food & drink
- fashion & lifestyle
- travel & transport
- home & energy
