    Are the containers recyclable?

    Why do we need so many "hygiene" products for household use? Some may have a place where large numbers of dogs are kept together like rescue shelters but other than the puppy enzyme carpet spray and a bottle of doggy shampoo I haven't felt the need for anything else special. 18 months later and I'm still on my first bottles.

    Whist I applaud your cruelty free stance I really question why we need so many products. There are now real concerns that the overuse of such chemicals are causing significant environmental damage. Bio-degradable isn't the panacea - many biodegradable poo bags just break down into microplastics which contaminate our environment and fail to break down at all in anaerobic conditions - ie landfill which is where most will end up.

    This is a concern of mine too. However, looking at your website, you sell a lot of products in large recyclable containers, and smaller bottles they can be decanted into, which is great :) In commercial sectors, a variety of shampoos, etc., will be needed and it's far better if they're cruelty free.

    Disposable wipes - they certainly have their uses on dog walks, for when you discover the poo bag had a hole in it, though certainly in the home/grooming parlour/vet they should be avoided if possible.

    And again, antibacterial products will be necessary in commercial locations, but I do wish people would stop using unnecessary antibacterial everything in the home.

    So from my point of view - well done for selling cruelty-free products that are essential for some establishments
