MERSEYSIDE FASHION & BEAUTY BOUTIQUE MAKES TOP 3 IN RSPCA GOOD BUSINESS AWARDS SHORTLIST
A Merseyside online business has reached the finals of the national RSPCA Good Business Awards within just six months of trading.
Founded in February this year by animal lover and vegan Carrina Rowe, NaturesBoutique.com is one of three.
The fashion and beauty etailer’s strict animal welfare and ethical business policies were praised by the high profile judging panel who recognised Carrina’s efforts as a small business owner who places animal welfare at the top of her agenda:
“It’s a fantastic surprise and a real honour to have made it this far in such a prestige national competition. I have always admired and respected the companies chosen for an RSPCA Good Business Award, so to be in the running for one ourselves and in our first year makes me incredibly proud,” said Carrina, whose lifelong love of animals and nature stems from her mother who worked as a veterinary nurse.
“As a little girl, my mum always rescued animals and when I left home, I followed in her footsteps taking in all sorts of creatures in need!”
“My belief that no animal should have to suffer for the sake of our beauty led me on a search for cruelty free make up and skincare products that were also natural, kinder to the environment, animals and my skin.”
“I started Nature’s Boutique after discovering some products that claimed to be cruelty free were not necessarily so. None of the products we sell are tested on animals, nor do the brand owners pay third parties to conduct animal testing on their behalf. In fact many are certified by independent bodies such as the BDIH, Soil Association and Vegan Society which have strict criteria for products bearing their seal. Customers can shop safe in the knowledge that there are no animal derivatives and no animal ingredients in the products sold on our site.”
Carrina also supports a number of local and national animal charities such as Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre, World Horse Welfare and the Parkgate Pony Sanctuary, co-sponsors of Scouseveg – the social and campaigning group for vegetarians and vegans in and around Liverpool, Merseyside and the Wirral and actively helps raise awareness of the many animal related causes close to her heart.
The winners will be announced on Wednesday 6th October in London.
