m&s_winsethicalaward.jpgIn these environmental and animal-preserving times, being crowned the UK's most animal friendly retailer is surely a string worth adding to your bow. Marks & Spencer has been awarded that title at the RSPCA Good Business Awards.

It is the fourth year in a row that M&S have won the award, which begs the question - what are other major retailers really doing to push its animal friendly policies?

Yorkshire-based retailer, Izzy Lane, took home the gong for best small fashion retailer. They were praised for their commitment to to animal welfare, including launching its own sheep sanctuary.

"Izzy Lane shows how a passion for animals can equal a truly luxurious and cutting edge fashion label, whilst Marks & Spencer continues to prove that sustainability and sales can go hand in hand on the high street," said fashion judge, Wayne Hemingway.
