Go green: sustainability and the future of shopping

Updated: Jun 15

Whilst watching TV recently, I saw a programme advertised called The Perfect Planet. Just hearing those words made me think, yes, we do have the perfect planet with such wonderful nature and yet we take it for granted.


We pollute our air, our waters and our land. I'm not going to get on my soap box and start lecturing about how we need to change. But maybe just reading this, if you haven't thought about it before, you might think about it now.


We used to look after our surroundings. When we had a hole in our sock, it was darned. Now we throw away clothing after wearing it once (if that). We had glass bottles and tins for storage, then plastic came along and we all know where that ended up. Electronics were really exciting when first invented, now they are cheaper and thrown away when the next version comes out. So in other words, once convenience took over, the planet took a back seat.


Here at Pampered Poochy we like to think we are doing our little bit for the environment by using no single use plastic to package our products. Our glassine bags are environmentally friendly, compostable and reusable. Once you finish washing your dog with one of our soap bars, let it air dry, then store it back in the bag. Wherever possible we have used packaging that can be recycled or reused.


We are quite new to this way of thinking, we don't propose to be pioneers, but we do like to think we can help others join us in this way of thinking. So why not join us and start thinking about the amount of single use plastic you use or buy and how you could reduce it.
