The Alternative Pet Shop

The Alternative Pet Shop

As the world focuses on ways to restore the planet, businesses are turning to greener ways to run their stores and provide eco-friendly alternatives in everything they do, from manufacturing their products all the way to distribution and sales.

When it comes to saving our Mother Earth, we are doing all that we can to preserve the elegance of our environment and keep our planet fighting fit for lifetimes to come.

Here at the Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we understand the changes that can be made to best suit our planet. Making our store and products as green as possible has been a challenge we set ourselves since opening the store a few years ago. Since then, our ethos has never changed and the team work tirelessly to ensure we are doing our bit to contribute to a healthy and perfect planet.

With doing whats best in Nature's interest at the very heart and soul of our business, from everything to our ingredients to packaging, here’s all the ways we are one of the greenest pet stores on the market, and how choosing us isn't just great for your pet, but great for the planet too.

Sourcing Sustainable Ingredients

When it comes to the ingredients in our pet treats and food, we pride ourselves on stocking and selling products that contain only the best ingredients that are locally and ethically sourced, resulting in a product that is both delightfully delicious and keeps prime farming and agriculture at its heart. 

Every meat, poultry, game or fish product that we produce, sell or promote is sourced ethically and is 100% natural. All of our own fish products in our store are sourced from British waters, ensuring we are doing what we can to support the British fishing market. For us, every product that we sell showcases the best of British farming and we believe if it’s not good enough for us, it’s certainly not good enough for our pets. We maintain close relationships with all brands that we stock and sell to ensure every product on our shelves is not highly nutritional, wholesome and contains multitude of health benefits, but is also amazing for our environment.

We don’t just care about where our food goes but we care where it comes from!

Ways we try to reduce packaging

Bulk-Buying Bargains

It’s not rocket science to understand that buying more of something in one go reduces the packaging rather than multiple purchases of the same product. At Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we understand the importance of cutting down on single-use plastic packaging. Reducing plastic is more significant than it has been ever before and companies around the world are doing what they can to encourage people to bulk-buy to avoid multitudes of plastic waste. Here at Natural Cornish Pet Shop – we feel the same.

With range of multi-buy offers and bulk deals on some of our favourite products, we encourage to bulk-buy and stock up on terrific treats and fantastic food, saving yourself some pennies, trips out of those rainy days and protecting your planet – even in the smallest of ways.

Offering large sized bags of our best-selling favourite fishy treats – means if your dog loves our products – purchasing more – for less money and less packaging.

With the majority of our products on 5% to 15% discounts when you buy more, reducing more frequent purchases to one single bulk-buy can actually save you money and reduce the packaging waste by more than half – saving your purse and the planet – one click at a time.

Natural Packaging

At Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we pride ourselves on stocking pet products that are not just great for our pets but great for the planet too. Many of our products, including our own branded food and treats, are packaged with materials that are 100% recyclable.

What’s even better than recyclable packing? No packaging at all!

When it comes down to reducing nonsense packaging, there is no better solution that a simple recyclable label and let the product do the talking. Many of the chews and treats we sell at Natural Cornish Pet Shop are packaged in their own skin so, you can see exactly what you are buying. You simply see the product, pick it from the shelf and give it straight to your four-legged friend without removing any nasty single-use wrappers or labels. 

Some of our amazing self-packaged products include:

As the world begins to see dramatic changes in the climate due to a world-wide lockdown, more and more of us are caring about how our behaviour may have been reckless towards the environment. With a greener change on the horizon, even the smallest steps can make the biggest of impacts.

So if you are after tasty treats or fantastic food that is great for your pets and pawfect for the planet, choose the Natural Cornish Pet Shop and see for yourself all the reasons why we are one of the best alternative pet shops on the market right now!
