I recently bought a few things from my affiliate partner Biome Eco Stores. I love supporting them because they have such a great range of products that help make daily life more environmentally friendly.
Their website is full of thoughtful information about the sustainability of what they sell. Although they are based in Brisbane, the products have always arrived to me in Sydney within a few days.
My recent buys included a few things that will help avoid single-use plastics: Some stainless steel straws so we don’t have to use disposable ones, some beeswax wraps to replace plastic wrap and some reusable produce bags. I also bought some stainless steel cups to go with our family size insulated drink bottle because I am tired of wasting my life scrambling to find all five drink bottles as our family barrels out the door.
I put a few of my purchases on Instagram using the #biomelove hashtag and managed to win myself a $100 voucher. So now I get the pleasure of hunting through the store and working out exactly what to spend my money on. But I don’t really know where to start. I’d love your advice – if you had $100 to spend at Biome Eco Stores, what would you buy?
I’ll tell you straight up that I would love to get a Planetbox lunchbox. I think they are a fantastic product. Given the track record in our family, it feels like a good way to spend this free money! But do I get one for me or for my son who starts school next year?
But then my oldest daughter has been stealing my Keep Cup recently so I could get her one of her own in a funky colour. In fact, I was thinking of buying some of these gorgeous glass Keep Cups as presents for Christmas so maybe I could buy a whole bunch and get my Christmas shopping done with this voucher.
Of course, I could be really practical and buy stuff that I go though a lot of. For instance I need some more deodorant and this Black Chicken Remedies one has been working really well for me.
How would you spend a voucher like this? Check through the Biome website and tell me in the comments what you would buy if you could spend $100 at Biome Eco Stores.
NB: I have an affiliate relationship with these guys – so if you do decide to buy anything through their site I will get a teensy commission which helps me to keep going with the green-aspiration for your kitchen. However, you can also get a chance to win your own $100 voucher from Biome Eco Stores, by posting your purchases on social media using the hashtag #biomelove. Tag @beyondthetrolley too! – I’d love to see them 🙂
