Ökocat Kicks Off Cat Litter Donation Program
Ökocat, an eco-friendly brand of cat litter, recently launched its second annual ökocause4paws Litter Donation Program. It officially kicked off on June 5 in honor of World Environment Day.
As part of the program, ökocat is asking pet owners to submit a vote for their favorite eco-friendly city. Near the end of summer, four animal shelters in eco-friendly cities will receive a donation of more than 1,000 pounds of cat litter. Selected shelters will also be able to provide all cat adopters with a free box of ökocat through the end of 2019.
“Our annual ökocause4paws Litter Donation Program gives us the opportunity encourage cat adoption, while also allowing us to educate cat owners about how they can make sustainable choices when it comes to the products they purchase and use daily in their homes,” said Leslie Ellis, communications manager at ökocat, a brand of Healthy Pet in Ferndale, Wash. “Our litter delivers 7-day odor control, it’s free of harmful chemicals, additives and synthetic scents, and it’s not harmful to the environment, unlike clay litter, which still accounts for the 2.4 million tons of cat litter that ends up in landfills each year.”
The voting period is open now through Aug. 6. Participants can submit their vote on ökocat’s website for their favorite eco-friendly city. In return, all voters will receive a coupon for $3 off any box of ökocat natural litter. They will also be entered to win a 12-month supply (12 boxes) and several 1-month (1 box) giveaways that will be announced on the ökocat Facebook page (@ökocat) each week.
Last year, ökocat donated more than 3,000 pounds of litter to cat shelters in Portland, Ore., Denver and San Francisco, the three eco-friendly cities that received the most votes. An adoption event was hosted at PAWS near Seattle where 22 cats were adopted and a donation of more than 1,000 pounds of litter was made by ökocat.
