Green Beanz is a family owned and operated indoor plant store. Although gardening has been a passion on both sides of the family for generations, this is the first time we had decided to share our love of plants with the public. Misty walked away from her career as a social worker to care full time for our son Leonidas, who was born with a rare lung disease. She started selling plants on ebay as a way to help make some money since she couldn't leave Leo's side. The business grew (pardon the pun) and in March 2018 Green Beanz was born as an online only shop.
In November 2018 we decided to hit the markets in Erskineville and really enjoyed getting to meet many of our Sydney based customers, and put faces to names. The markets were so much fun for us and we loved getting to interact with our customers, so we started thinking about a brick and mortar shop. The Erskineville community had always been wonderful to us so we took the plunge and decided to open our first store in May 2019.
We hope to continue to grow and aren't really sure what the future holds for us but we feel blessed that we get to do this for a living and feel honoured that you support us. Many thanks, lots of love..Mick and Misty Koulianos.
A portion of all sales will go directly to the research of Children's Interstitial Lung Disease (chILD) in hopes of finding a cure for children whose only hope for improvement is a lung transplant. We would love to raise awareness to help Australian children suffering from these extremely serious and rare lung diseases, including our son Leo.
In addition, we encourage everyone to consider organ donation.
