Green House goodness ....

family owned, local business

The Green House Environment Shop is a family owned, small business. 

This is me, Peta - shop owner and doer of many things at once! I first discovered The Green House (as a customer) about 20 years ago. It was my go-to shop for awesome greeting cards and unique gifts. When my own children started school, I had a little extra time on my hands, so on one of my Green House visits, I randomly enquired about a casual job .... and now, here I am owning my favourite shop and loving every minute of it. 

My family members all make important contributions to The Green House. My husband Chris is our maintenance manager and all round handy person. My daughter is a boss on the cash register & social media contributor. My son is a great product tester! Even my parents are involved with projects during busy times and stocktakes.

best staff ever

Maree has been part of The Green House family for more than 10 years. Her gorgeous presence lights up our little shop.

Maree creates fabulous front window displays and colourful product placement throughout the shop. With a keen eye for recycling & repurposing, Maree is often on the look out for quirky bits & bobs for shop displays.   

conservation and social justice groups

The Green House continues to stay true to our green roots by supporting  local conservation groups and social justice causes. We share a portion of our profits each year, and distribute funds from our customer donation tin to local green initiatives. 

We collect funds on behalf of various organisations through the sale of fabulous goodies, such as handmade toys, tote bags, stickers, magnets and postcards. 100% of these sales support groups such as:

CAFNEC (Cairns and Far North Environment Centre)

Tree Roo Rescue & Conservation Centre

Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation


It's the perfect place for unique and quirky gifts. I've bought several items for birthdays and the receivers have loved all of them! Everything is reasonably priced and they also have beautiful wrapping paper and cards.


Want something unique ... then this gift shop is for you. I love it. Wonderfully helpful staff. It's a must!!


FANTASTIC service.
The staff sourced & posted some gifts to us interstate. It's a fascinating little shop. Far removed from the toy koalas & souvenirs many other shops stock. GREAT service.
