Automated Pet Care Products, Inc., the maker of the Litter-Robot™, the only automated, self-cleaning litter box product made in the U.S., encourages pet owners to go ‘Green’ with their cats on Earth Day by reducing their environmental impact using eco-friendly pet products such as Litter-Robot’s new biodegradable cat litter liners.
In celebration of Earth Day 2010, Litter-Robot is giving away a ‘Green’ automated, self-cleaning litter-box system, which includes its new, biodegradable draw liners (pack of 25 - $15.99) and an ECO Litter-Robot ($329) which uses 100 percent recycled plastics in 84 percent of all the plastic components. Go to the Litter Robot Blog and tell us how you are lessening your cat’s environmental paw print. One winner will be chosen at random on June 8, 2010 and announced on the Litter-Robot Blog. All entries must be received by June 1, 2010.
Automated Pet Products continues to develop its line of ‘Green’ pet care products with the new, eco-friendly, biodegradable drawer liners. Bag dimensions are 23.25” x 29.5” x .95 mil and the drawer liners are completely biodegradable and break down quickly. Testing has shown that the moisture from litter clumps did not degrade the bags significantly during a typical period of use (1-2 weeks in the drawer) and the liners help keep the Litter-Robot drawer neat and tidy for easy disposal of litter clumps. The drawer liners are sold in packs of 25 ($15.99), 50 ($24.99) and 100 bags ($37.99), price includes shipping. (Please note: The new biodegradable drawer liners will be available mid-April).
“Our ECO Unit Litter-Robot is made of 100 percent recycled plastic in 84 percent of the total plastic volume, combined with the product’s standard efficiency and compatibility with biodegradable litter and drawer liners, we offer pet owners a great choice for going green with their cats,” says Brad Baxter, President of Automated Pet Products. “The Litter-Robot is proudly made in the USA and buying local reduces energy consumed and pollution emitted by transporting products from overseas.”
Using an automated litter box such as the Litter-Robot is just one way for cat owners to lessen their pet’s environmental paw print. Here are a few other ‘Earth Day Pet Tips’ to follow and in no time, pet owners and their cats will be celebrating Earth Day, everyday.
