We got a very special email this week from Maisie the Miniature Schnauzer. Her Mummy recently bought her a Eco Dog Collar and Lead. It’s made by Lupine from post consumer plastic bottles! This recycled plastic dog collar and lead even comes with a lifetime guarantee!
Here is what Maisie had to say about it:
“My mummy got me a lovely new recycled plastic dog collar & lead from your fab website. I love the bright yellow colour – it looks great with my black coat!”
“I think there was some confusion about the way to add the lead to the basket, but I heard Mummy say she chatted to you about that on the phone and you were super helpful which was very nice of you.”
“Mummy is very happy that these are all ethical products because they are good for the planet, whatever that means. I don’t really know much about that, but I do know I like my new things and I’m sending you a big wet lick to say thank you 🐶👅 “

Anna & Mo, from cleanandnatural.co.uk, began their ethical journey during a distressing time for their family. Their middle child had severe eczema and reacted badly to the conventional, petrochemical based treatment. Following a tip from a friend, they discovered that Shea Butter was the soothing solution they needed: two years on and both their family and their business have blossomed!
Meet Mesquitta, a young and dynamic woman on a fascinating journey. Her business, Vegan Beauty Cosmetics, sells gorgeous glitzy handmade vegan nail polish and cosmetics. But Effiena’s story is an interesting one: she became aware of veganism through her business, rather than starting the business from a vegan perspective. How great is that? Let’s find out more…
Family recipe, ethical and not-too-expensive: Goupie chocolates are a sweet revelation! I first tried them through my monthly Vegan Tuck Box, and was an instant convert! So, when I met Grace at The Great Yorkshire Vegan Fair, I was determined to feature Goupie on our Ethical Business: Ethical Life blog series. Here is what she had to say!
