We believe that businesses should take responsibility for limiting their environmental impact. We’ve bought all of our electricity from GoodEnergy for over 10 years who generate their energy from British sunshine, wind and water.
We only use electricity to heat our stores* to ensure all our energy consumption is from renewable sources. It costs us more but causes much less pollution than fossil fuelled heating.
In 2011 we converted all of our stores and buildings to LED lighting. They use up to 80% less energy than conventional fittings, in fact lighting one store uses less electricity than the average household vacuum cleaner!
A tasty alternative to air conditioning
Air conditioning stores is very wasteful and uses massive amounts of energy. We let our staff wear skirts and shorts in the summer and if it gets too hot we hand out ice lollies!
We are proud to say that by using a collection of national and regional initiatives and waste partners we are Zero to Landfill! From animal waste, to food, to cardboard boxes, all of our waste is re-used or recycled!
We only use environmentally friendly Ecover cleaning products because they are kinder to the environment and our staff's hands.
Green it Up!
We take pride in our appearance and we've made a commitment to 'green up' as many of our stores as possible to enhance the communities in which we trade.
Each year we give over five tonnes of unwanted, unsold or damaged pet food to local charities.
The World’s Most Sustainable Pet Food
We funded the world’s first sustainable dog food, Yora. At Pets Corner, we have always had the environment and animal welfare at the heart of our business, pushing us to develop the first super premium pet food made using insect protein.
The Greenest Warehouse
Our brand-new warehouse opening early 2020 will follow our Green ethos. We will be using renewable energy from Solar Panels for our lighting/heating, electric charging points and we aim to give back to British Wildlife by creating Bee Hives to encourage these critical pollinators to flourish.
Our fleet of lorries are Mercedes Actros 18t vehicles which have ultra-low emissions and a EURO IV standard engine. This makes them incredibly fuel efficient and at the highest current standard for low fuel emissions.
