“We will endeavour to make finding and choosing ethical products easy, interesting and enjoyable, by providing balanced and well-researched information about the products that we sell, by becoming experts so the customer won’t have to. We will work with charities, sanctuaries, companies and individuals to improve the lives of all animals and eventually hope to make ethical pet products the norm”, the business says in its mission statement.
