For Petz Ltd was founded in 2020 by Lisburns Local Business Entrepreneur Emma Moulds. Emma has been working with animals all her life and has been part of the animal industry since 2008, when she started work placements while on a Level 3 Nation Diploma in Animal Management course which she completed in 2010.
Whilst completing placement at local Dog Grooming Salon she found her care for animals plus her artistic flare drew her into the Dog Grooming Sector, and she completed training to be a Dog Groomer. Emma opened her own Dog Grooming Business, Lisburn Dog Groomers Ltd in 2010.
Ten years in and Emma decided she wanted to help other pets not just dogs and decided with so much conflicting information available to not only dog owners but other pet owners also she wanted to open a Pet Store, stocking only the best products available 'For Petz'.
Emma is very environmentally conscious so it only makes sense that her latest business venture is as environmentally friendly as possible.
What the company is doing to reduce its carbon footprint:
Reduce, Reuse & Recycle, we aim to reduce the amount of waste we produce by reducing the amount of packaging we use. Reusing the boxes and packaging we receive in our deliveries and any additional packaging we use has been sourced from sustainable sources and is up to 100% recycled and all is recyclable too!
Going Paperless, we aim to use a lot less paper by using email and text or calls as our main correspondence with suppliers and customers. Any paper we do use is recycled and from sustainable sources.
Originally For Petz Ltd had a projected launch date of January 2021, it was going to be a 'Bricks & Mortar Store' as well as an online store, however when Covid19 hit the British shores and sister company Lisburn Dog Groomers Ltd was forced to close this left founder Emma with too much time on her hands.
Wanting to help her local community through this time she gathered together her resources and launched the For Petz Ltd online store in April 2020.
The launch date of the Bricks & Mortar store remains at January 2021, with Emma completing orders from home and using her time to provide those who are shielding or vulnerable to a free contactless delivery service in the local area.
Those who are still able to leave the house are welcome to a free collection service from Lisburn Dog Groomers Premises.
Eco Friendly Cleaning Products, we will only be using environmentally friendly cleaning products.
Refill Service, where products allow we will be offering a refill service to cut down on the plastic bottles going to waste.
Suppliers, where possible we have also sourced suppliers who are helping the environment through sustainable thinking.
