How we Reduce Plastic in our Business

In today’s environmentally conscious world, the need to prevent plastic pollution has become more important than ever. As a business, our commitment to reduce plastic goes beyond just being socially responsible; it is an important part of our sustainability journey.

As a responsible and ethical business, we understand the urgency and significance of reducing single use plastic in the workplace. At Snooty Catz we work hard to reduce plastic as this aligns with our core values of promoting a healthier planet and a greener future.

Environmental Impact

Plastic pollution poses a significant threat to our environment and ecosystems. Plastic waste contaminates our oceans, rivers, and landscapes, endangering marine life and wildlife. By reducing our plastic usage, we are actively contributing to minimizing plastic waste and its detrimental effects on the environment. And by taking steps to decrease plastic consumption, we can significantly decrease our ecological footprint and play a vital role in protecting our planet.

Are we perfect?

No! We try to be as ethical and environmentally responsible as we can but our focus has always been to provide natural, cruelty free products. However, we still have a few products that are supplied in recyclable plastic bottles as the nature of the product dictates this. We are hopeful that in the future there will be a suitable plastic free alternative for these products.


By actively seeking ways to reduce plastic consumption in our business, we can make a positive impact on the environment. Our commitment to you our lovely customers is that you can always trust that we are working hard to be the best we can. And together we can continue to reduce plastic waste and make the world a green healthier planet for all.
