The Power Of One

The Collective Power of Individual Actions Can Change Our World!

By choosing to reuse, in just one year Biome’s customers saved over 10.2 million single use products from being made, transported, wasted, or ending up in our rivers, oceans and landfill.

Calculations based on our purchase and usage figures* reveal we have saved a total of 10,251,805 single use coffee cups, plastic bags, produce bags, water bottles and plastic straws! This incredible figure does not even include all the other reusable choices that Biome customers make such as food covers and wraps, ice block moulds, sporks, menstrual cups and make your own skin care.

Collectively we saved tonnes of precious resources and created a healthier environment. These results prove that as a consumer you possess immense power to effect larger changes through your everyday actions.

*How we calculated the savings

These figures are calculated based on the number of reusable items that customers purchased from our online and four Brisbane stores in the past 12 months.

We then researched patterns of behaviour for each type of item and applied conservative estimates to the number of times our customers would re-use those items instead of using the throwaway alternative. We were careful not to over-exaggerate our estimates, so the results could be even more!

They are incredible results, don’t you agree?
