Biome is pronounced bye-oh-m (rhymes with 'home').
Biome was founded by Tracey Bailey and is a small family business. After working in corporate communications and starting a family, we made a choice to be part of the solution to our planet's future.
Beginning in 2003 as an online shop, we grew into a physical store in Paddington (Brisbane) in June 2005, then opened our second store in the Brisbane CBD in September 2007. We now have a store at Indooroopily Shopping Centre and an online warehouse in Milton. We are a multi-talented team who bring to work every day an ethusiasm to help you with the simple choices that will make a difference.
Our stores are overflowing with learning and products that meet our environmental and ethical criteria (see them below). We bring you a wide range of natural skin care and green cleaning, plus safe, reusable bottles and many more products that help you live a waste free, toxin free and ethical life. We specialise in beautiful Australian hand-made gifts and home accessories, making it easy for you to support Australian small business.
Biome was inspired by those of us who want to make a difference, but may feel the actions we take have little impact. Expressing your values through your purchasing power will make a difference. By supporting the people making our products, you are helping to make their dreams viable and encouraging responsible enterprise.
We believe that the everyday choices of individuals do have the power to transform our world. By living in harmony with our planet and all who share it, we empower ourselves, enrich our lives and enhance wellbeing.
