Our Community Impact
We're focused on building a better tomorrow for all by using the power of business to drive positive and lasting change.
As a purpose led business, all of our decisions are centred on positively impacting those that we care deeply about - our customers, suppliers, employees, the community and environment. We are committed to giving back, not only by regularly donating to likeminded charities and organisations but by being the best business for the world - a business that puts people and the environment before profits.
In June 2018, Biome became the first Australian retailer awarded international B Corporation certification for its success in operating a business with the highest social and environmental standards.
B Corporation certification recognises purpose-driven businesses that run with the highest level of transparency and accountability, and are committed to improving social and environmental conditions for all. B Corporations have one shared vision - to create a global movement using the power of business to drive positive change. They are driven by the value they add to the wider community, not profits, and operate at a higher social and environmental level, considering business impacts and being responsible for them.
We support local suppliers
We're proud to support hundreds of Australian makers by providing a marketplace to sell their products and continue their work creating sustainable solutions to the world's environmental problems.
Biome is a business built on purpose before profit with a mission to be part of solving our planet's ecological crisis, and this drives us to support others who are pursuing that common good. With the help of your generous support, we have been able to help hundreds of organisations take action on environmental matters. From supporting the wellbeing of koalas and orangutans to managing our Kiva microloan lending group, each year we support others who are making a difference in the world.

Biome Fundraiser Program
We're helping the next generation of eco-warriors fundraise responsibly with our zero waste fundraisers. Our planet friendly fundraisers for schools and environmental organisations offer a waste free, vegan and sustainable fundraising alternative. Our fundraiser program is currently offline as we manage our website migration. If you feel you have a vitally important cause that cannot wait, please get in touch with cutomer service and we may be able to assist you.
In the news
We're grateful for the media who helped to spread the word about sustainable and ethical choices by telling the story of Biome. Here is a great feature about Biome's motivation and achievements by the independent magazine Peppermint, whom we admire for their sustainability focus > "Be the Change".

12 Days of Good Deeds and Good Deals
At the end of each year, we give back to the community by promoting non-profit organisations whom we admire throughout the year. For 12 days we share 12 good deeds accompanied by a good deal. We work closely with the charities we support each year and receive wonderful feedback about how this campaign has helped to increase donations and support at a time when they need it most.
