What is a Naked Shop? 

At AvoPomme in Knysna, we are using the term naked shop to communicate the method of taking packaging off products, making produce and products and even household products you purchase, naked. You purchase goods from bulk, only buying what you need in weight or volume and using reusable packaging methods instead of single use methods that damage our environment.

We are converting our store to a naked store. And we need your help. 

AvoPomme? Who we are... 

AvoPomme is an owner run store in Woodmill Lane Shopping Centre, Knysna that has a café, art gallery and retail space. Through our passion for earth friendly living and driving towards a zero waste lifestyle, we’re now turning our retail space into a naked shop where daily groceries and household goods can be shopped for with no single use plastic and minimum to no packaging.

Our aim is to locally source and supply you with your household goods, food and cleaning; in an earth friendly and convenient way. What this means is that not only are we doing it naked (no single use plastic, but rather reusable glass and your own refillables), we are supporting local small businesses, keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum and minimising our waste.
