I stumbled upon the Biome Eco Friendly Store while searching for a bus out of Brisbane City after the flash flood this week. This shop caught my eye with the unique Christmas decorations and items in the window. How fortuitous! I snapped a couple of photos and decided that I would be back for a visit.
Biome is located at 33 Adelaide Street, Brisbane City and a great place to find something special for your special family and friends who care about the environment.
They have something for all tastes. I had a wander through the shop on Friday night. The staff are very friendly and not pushy at all. They allowed me to take my time checking out all of the various eco-friendly items on their shelves.
I found watches made of wood, tasmanian oak knitting needles, lavender eye pillows, natural mineral make-up, natural soaps, organic teas, fair trade chocolate, water purifiers, natural cleaning products, reusable bags, recycled notebooks, toys for children and wood frame sunglasses that were very cool!
The watches were fantastic and very professional. Make sure you check them out.
They stock jewellery and craft items, keep cups, glass containers, organic bed linen and reusable bottles.
They have a couple of shelves dedicated just for children and babies.
I even found sweet little eco-friendly Christmas decorations.
