Founded by Tracey Banks, a child of the Generation X consumer age and recovering fashion-aholic.
Her war on waste was triggered by the reality check of the waste of everyday family life borne out by ever-overflowing recycling bins and always-needed charity bag collections.
Tracey’s professional experience spans 20+years, across mainly retail and finance industries, from start-ups to large global corporates. Predominantly working in ecommerce software delivery, Tracey has performed roles in sustainability as well as obtaining a Masters from Royal College of Art in Fashion Footwear.
In May 2018, unpckd was conceived to fill a self-serving gap in the market. As a full-time working mum, wanting to lead a more sustainable life but struggling to find time to get to a refill store, Tracey realised there was a need for a new kind of delivery service - one to take refills to the people, to offer the convenience of online shopping without the waste.
Launching as an experiment in July 2018, unpckd continues to grow and evolve week by week, delivery by delivery, refill by refill and customer by customer.
Tracey is committed to unpckd being a social enterprise to balance the focus on purpose over profit, with running a financially and operationally sustainable business.
We are currently a team of one - but excited for the day we can expand...get in touch if this would interest you :)
