Biome Haul

(not a paid review. I just like my new stuff) 

Ok so I say "haul". It's a slight exaggeration. I only got three things, but in my defence, I am not particularly wealthy and "some stuff I got" is not as good a title.

My order arrived quickly (probably at least partly due to the company and me both being in Brisbane) and came in a lovely little brown post satchel with an exciting little sticker on it to let me know what was inside.

So what did I get!?

I'm getting to that. Do calm down. I got these things:

And this lovely little personalised note:

But I didn't test the note, I only tested the things.

The first item was this environmental toothbrush:

This isn't the first time I've used one of these toothbrushes, so I won't include a review here, but you can read all about how excited I was my first time by following this link, which will open up in a new window so you can go read it later.

The second thing I ordered were these wooden disposable teaspoons.

My plan is to always have a couple in my handbag, so if I get a coffee or a cake when I'm out, I can use them rather than the plastic ones that are usually provided. I do know from experience these spoons can be washed by hand and used a few times before they wear out, when I will pop them into my compost bin. If you try to wash them in the dishwasher, it's too hot and the spoons lose their shape. NEVER MIND HOW I KNOW!

The third item I got was these reusable produce bags, to use in place of the single-use ones provided in the fruit and veg section of the supermarket:

Each bag is fairly large, but only weighs 10 grams:

and eight bags fit into the handy carry pouch:

This one is holding just under one kilogram of bananas, and could easily hold another kilo:

The bags are made from recycled plastic bottles.

I will definitely be placing another order in the future!

If you would like to check out the range, you can visit Biome here (opens in a new window) or check out their Twitter and Facebook profiles (those do too).

Let me know what you think!

  1. I love the idea of the reusuable spoons but the produce bags got me really excited. I honestly didn't know that these things existed - so thanks for enlightening me. I can see how they'd really come in useful!

    1. I only recently found out about them myself! I've been looking for some that are not too expensive and nice and light. These ones are great, especially being recycled.

    2. Yes - and we all like to do something great for the environment don't we? :-)
