Automated Pet Care Products is doing their part to offer pet owners eco-friendly pet care products, such as the new ECO Unit Litter-Robot, to help contribute to the protection and sustainability of the planet - while still helping pet owners pamper their beloved cats.
"We are very passionate about building green pet products and use recycled materials in our new ECO Unit Litter-Robot. This is a good first step, but thinking green involves creating durable products that last, allow for repair and can be recycled at their end of useful life," says Brad Baxter, president of Automated Pet Care Products. "As we celebrate Earth Day it is important that we purchase products that last longer to achieve a higher level of energy and materials savings. Now that's what we can call a truly green product."
The Litter-Robot new ECO Unit is the prefect litter management solution that helps cat owners keep their pet 'green' and happy. Constructed with high quality, durable, industrial-grade components, the Litter-Robot is built to last and uses 100% recycled plastics in 84% of all the plastic components. The product is backed by a 90-day, money back guarantee and never grows obsolete as new products and enhancements are designed for the Litter-Robot based on customer feedback.
The Litter-Robot saves pet owners money and eliminates the need for expensive waste receptacles and chemical cartridges that are used with other automated litter boxes. Pet owners can line the waste drawer with inexpensive standard 8 and 13-gallon biodegradable garbage bags or recycle large grocery store bags. The Litter-Robot makes cleaning the litter box as easy and inexpensive as changing a garbage bag.
The Litter-Robot self-cleaning litter box works with any clumping litter or biodegradable litters and use up to 50% less cat litter compared with traditional litter boxes. The Litter-Robot is friendlier to the environment than other automated litter boxes because it reduces the landfill input from litter waste, waste receptacles and chemical cartridges.
Using an automated litter box such as the Litter-Robot is just one way for cat owners to lessen their pet's carbon paw print. Here are a few other tips for 'Going Green with Your Cat on Earth Day.'
