    Biome is Australia's Top Sustainable Retailer | Shop Eco Friendly Products Australia

    Biome’s commitment to taking sustainability seriously has been recognised with the Top Sustainable Retailer in Australia award by Power Retail!

    What makes Biome Australia’s Top Sustainable Retailer?

    Since our beginning in 2003, long before sustainability was a buzz word, we’ve built a reputation as a trailblazing eco friendly retailer that aims to help our customers live with less waste, less toxins and less impact on the planet.

    We were the first retailer to gain B Corp Certification in the country, and go above and beyond all other natural and eco retailers to only sell products that are 100% free from destructive palm oil, free from petrochemicals and synthetic preservatives and fragrances, and that are mindful of people and animals.

    To operate our business in sustainable ways, we:

    • Choose 100% GreenPower for our locations.
    • Offset the carbon emissions of shipping your online parcels and operating our business, and are on a journey to NetZero by 2030.
    • Ship our parcels plastic free.
    • Partner with Terracycle and others to provide extensive recycling for hard to recycle items such as pens and toothpaste tubes.
    • Recycle cardboard boxes for void fill and use paper tape to seal boxes.
    • Support environmental groups and charities.
    • Have never offer plastic shopping bags in our stores, and run a bag deposit scheme where we use your donated paper bags for other customers!
    • Fit out our stores re-purposing materials or sourcing new fixtures made with sustainable materials. We avoid MDF, PVC and formaldehyde, use zero VOC paints, water-saving devices.

    Over the last two decades we’ve been obsessed with finding solutions to environmental problems, scrutinising products to uncover green-washing, hidden toxins, and dubious ingredients.  It is this obsession and careful scrutiny that sets us apart from other stores and marketplaces selling similar products.

    For our customers, we:

    • Invest in empowering you with the knowledge and access to carefully-vetted choices that actually do make a difference.
    • Source the most sustainable, toxin free, locally made products, including products with minimal or no packaging. More here >
    • Encourage buying once for life, and love to source high quality products that replace everyday like stainless steel razors and pegs.
    • Offer replacement parts for products wherever possible.
    • Offer bulk and refill options in our stores.
