If you’ve never been shopping at a zero waste store, don't need to be confused! Before visiting Naked Inc, you can bring an empty container from home. Also prepare a shopping list along with estimated amount. When you arrive, you can immediately pick up items you needed. Later, Naked Inc. staff will weigh the container you are carrying and will be filled with items you want to buy.

Then, the container will be weighed again. The weight of your container after being filled will be reduced by the weight of the container before filling. The result is the weight of your goods purchased will be multiplied by the price per gram. In accordance with the zero waste concept, buyers only have to pay for items per gram.

What if you don't have a container or forget to bring it? Don’t worry! Because Naked Inc. provide glass containers at affordable prices. The store also has an adoption program for customers' unused containers, which can be donated to Naked Inc. This open adoption is pegged at Rp 5,000. The proceeds from the sale of unused containers will later be donated to some aid agencies that will change every month.
