safe water bottles and reusable choices for you and your family

EcoEssentials was formerly an online store operated by the Biome Eco Store community where we have always been devoted to our customers and our planet.

Recently we decided to change this website into more of an online eco resource. We hope to educate our readers to help reduce their carbon footprint and become more energy efficient while showcasing some great products that will help you accomplish a more eco friendly lifestyle.

The Biome Eco Store community chooses products based on these criteria:

  • organic certification (no chemicals, no GM, no antibiotics, no hormones, no irradiation)
  • no toxic or harmful ingredients, only safe
  • fairtrade certification (better deal for third
  • world producers)
  • vegan, cruelty free production & ingredients
  • recycled and recyclable packaging
  • Australian made products are our priority

The brands EcoEssentials previously stocked are now available on our community websites.
