PetsCorner.co.uk Celebrating Their Continued Commitment to Sustainable Business Operations

PetsCorner.co.uk, the UK’s leading provider of pet products, dog toys, pet food and many more is pleased to be celebrating its continued commitment to green, sustainable and carbon neutral business operations. The company has been one of the first to take up an eco-friendly business model and has taken numerous steps to ensure they have a low carbon impact. In the last few years they have switched to renewable energy and low energy lighting solutions. The company is pleased to announce that in 2010 they managed to recycle 75% of their waste materials and introduced an Eco-bag to encourage their customers to do the same.

Going green has become a buzz word for many companies in the last 5 years due to increased pressure from governments, scientists and consumers. Yet surprisingly businesses have been incredibly slow to act on this increased pressure; despite the large savings that can be potentially made.

The combined energy bill for small businesses in the UK was over 3.5 billion pounds in 2010 and this figure is expected to rise rather than fall in 2011. 40% of businesses have not investigated better deals from energy suppliers despite potential cost benefits.

Taking energy alone it is estimated that the average small business could save over£7000 per year if they improved their energy efficiency. Offices can cut their annual energy bills by 20% just by turning off lights and computer screens during non-work hours. Poor maintenance of boilers and heating systems costs businesses an extra 30% a year on their energy bills.

Online Dog Food Sales Growing Steadily

The number of people looking to buy their dog food from online shopping sites is growing steadily and has been unaffected by the recession.

That’s according to Swell Pets, one of the UK’s fastest growing online pet retailers.

The Hyde-based firm has examined national and international Internet search data which shows that searches for dog food have been rising steadily since 2004, even during the recession.

According to Swell Pets spokesman Antony Steadman, the company has seen huge growth in sales of dog food from its website www.swellpets.co.uk with very high levels of repeat custom.

He said: “The growth of the online dog food market made 2010 our best year to date. We saw a significant increase in sales of dog food over the past year, with thousands of customers choosing to save money by buying their dog food online, rather than from their supermarket or pet shop.

“The ability to get well-known premium dog food brands such as Arden Grange dog foodand IAMS Dog Food at low prices, along with free next day delivery for many orders, means that online retailers, such as Swell Pets, are persuading more and more people to switch to buying dog food online.”

Swell Pets Recommends Stocking Up On Dog Food And Cat Food This Winter

One of the UK’s leading online pet superstores Swell Pets is advising customers to stock up on dog food and cat food now, in advance of the next spate of bad weather.

Swell Pets has seen a rise in the sales of bulk buys, particularly of the Arden Grange dog food range, which is rich in glucosamine, chondroitin and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a combination of ingredients that are said to promote health and increase mobility.

Matt Clarke, ecommerce manager at Swell UK, said: “We’re seeing an increased demand for multi-bag deals on dog foods during the run up to the Christmas period and in the weeks since, as this is one of the most cost-effective ways to buy pet food if you keep a large breed or several dogs.

“Given that the snow and icy conditions are forecast to continue into the new year, we’d recommend stocking up on pet food now and have several great bulk-buy deals on our site.”

Customers can get great bulk deals on Eukanuba dog food, IAMS dog food and pet food from other big and trusted brands such as Bakers and Burns. Deliveries of orders have now resumed, but Swell Pets recommend that customers check the website for any updates to delivery times and any problems due to the weather.

Swell Pets also stocks dog clothing and pet accessories that will ensure your beloved animal stays happy, healthy, warm and safe during the cold snap.
