"Olde Burien"

Here is a small and by no means inclusive directory of Burien if you are looking for sustainble bussinesses in the area! Please remember that Burien has all the big names- Fred Meyer, Safeway, Chevrolet, etc. THese are just a few businesses that go above and beyond the norm.

Mini Directory of sustainable Burien

Australian Pie Company- Delicious home made aussie meat pies. They don’t mill their own flour but they make everything on site. Try a sausage roll and a cup of coffee- heaven. Packaging- they pack your meat pies in white sandwich bags- totally compostable! The larger pies may come in standard pie tins, but those are reusable. A+
425 SW 152nd, Burien

Elliot bay Brewing Company- All their burgers are organic Black Angus beef raised on Vashon Island. Spent grain from the brewing process is used to make their burger buns.They serve Tony's organic Fair Trade coffee. And beer. They make their own beer! And you can take the beer home in a handy glass jug that holds about a half a gallon.
