The Top Sustainable Solutions for 2023

In the past year, the Biome community made thousands of choices that helped protect all who call our beautiful planet home.

So, what were the top 10 solutions our community loved the most? In no particular order, here they are! 

1. Biome Natural Deodorant Cream


"Finally found a natural deodorant that doesn't irritate and actually works!" - Gita

Biome's very own aluminium free, bi-carb free, alcohol free natural deodorant features a super clean blend of natural ingredients to absorb moisture, inhibit odour causing bacteria, and mask smells. 

It is also not greasy, transforming from a cream to silky powder feel, that won't leave oil marks on your clothes.

2. Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaning

Toilet bowl cleaning

Avoid plastic and nasty chlorine cleaners with these septic safe alternatives.

Toilet bombs or powders made from bi-carb and citric acid are gentle and effective. Allow to fizz and then use a plastic free toilet brush to scrub the bowl clean, and a naturally anti-bacterial white vinegar and essential oil spray.

3. Natural Mozzie Repellent 

Mozzie repellent

Keep mozzies and other insects away without insecticides, DEET and other toxic chemicals. Our sustainable and natural mozzie repellents are made from essential oils that mozzies and other biting insects dislike. They are also palm oil free and cruelty free.

4. Tasman Sea Salt Flakes

Tasman Sea Salt

"A good addition to our healthy choices regime. Great it is an Aussie product and company" - Cheryl

Celtic sea salt has taken off in popularity due to some health trends on social media, but Tasman Sea Salt is actually better! Here's why:

  • harvested from much cleaner, pristine waters off Tasmania
  • lower in sodium than Celtic sea salt
  • contains the same beneficial sea minerals and nutrients
  • more flavourful
  • naturally pure white flakes, not grey
  • evaporated with clean energy
  • a better choice for the environment

6. Stainless Steel Wire Pegs


These stainless steel pegs are last-for-life alternatives that will withstand the strongest of winds.

@kimberlyxduncan captured this incredible footage during the recent wild storms on the Gold Coast. Thankfully, Kim is as safe as her washing.


We've stocked these wire pegs for many years because they are a brilliant resource-saving alternative to plastic pegs that break all the time. The original Wire Pegs are top quality and robust, with three grades f stainless steel to choose from. There is a 'windy' version that is slightly thicker wire so it grips more firmly.
