We're celebrating International Women’s Day this week by highlighting some of the many women owned and led businesses that we stock at Biome.
"Running an all-women’s social enterprise in a remote indigenous community on Groote Eylandt has its challenges. However, it also offers the incredible opportunity to make a big difference in the lives of the Wanindilyakwa women and their families. By incorporating bush medicines into the making of effective skincare products, we stay connected to our land and traditions in a meaningful way. This mission has become a labour of love for everyone involved.” @bush_medijina
“Like many women I am juggling motherhood and running a business but I’m proud to be a provider for my family and love doing something I’m passionate about.” - Philippa @pixienut
Philippa’s gorgeous earrings have been a Biome favourite for many years. Working from her studio in Northern NSW, Philippa’s pieces are inspired by nature and Australian wildlife.
"Female leaders have always been champions in the sustainability space, shining a light on better ways to live and work for a cleaner, greener future" - Heide @earthgreetings
Earth Greetings cards, notebooks and stationery inspires you to care and celebrate, whilst contributing to a brighter future for wildlife and our Earth.Their fun, colourful greetings cards feature the work of Australian artists and are sure to bring a smile to anyone's face. They are also a solar powered, carbon neutral business, that donates at least 10% of their profits to care for native wildlife and habitat.
“International Women’s Day is a little reminder that all of us can make a difference in this world.” Cathy @planet.revive
Planet Revive is a family-owned business based in Toowoomba, Queensland. The business came to life when Cathy decided to re-purpose leftover fabric scraps from her sewing projects to divert them from landfill, using them to create meaningful, useful products instead. Any scraps that are too small to use in the creation of Planet Revive products are donated to local daycare centres for children to use in craft projects, making the business a truly zero waste operation - even the packaging is 100% compostable!
