Sustainable businesses in Brisbane part 1: Biome and their blog "Accidental Greenie"

Every once in a while it's good to give a hat tip to other websites and businesses promoting a sustainable lifestyle. So here's an interesting blog to read and related eco-business to consider supporting.

Tracey Bailey who founded the eco-store Biome, which operates both online and from two Brisbane locations has a blog called Accidental Greenie where she writes about various "eco" topics and also gives information on some of the products biome sells.

We have previously profiled the reusable Onya weight bags that can be bought from Biome but the store also offers a wide variety of other eco-products ranging from jewelery to stainless steel water bottles, school supplies to skin care products. So if you are in the market for some mineral makeup, a bamboo cosmetics brush or some reusable sandwich wrap for your childrens' school lunches, this is the place to go.
Biome has stores in Paddington (part of the Paddington Green Precinct) and the city, plus online (which means they deliver).
On their website Biome claims their city store is the Greenest retail store in Australia, containing, amongst other things, a floor made from recycled tyres. Which is certainly an innovative way of putting the three R's into practice.

I recommending checking out both the blog and the store.

Personally I'd like to promote and profile other businesses especially those in the Pullenvale area where we operate (but also in greater Brisbane) that are either selling eco-products/ promoting a sustainable lifestyle and/or conducting their business in a sustainable manner. The more promotion and therefore custom we can give them the better.

If anyone has any suggestions please get in touch, or feel free to write your own profile.
