Recycled Paper Cat Litter (and Other Ways to Get Greener)Published July 19, 2011
Did you know old paper can be recycled into cat litter? It makes you wonder what else recycling can do.
A recent survey from Yesterday’s News, a cat litter made with recycled paper products, has shown that when unsure if an item is recyclable, half of adults (50%) say that they are most likely to just throw the item away!
Roughly one in six (18%) say they would put it into the recycling bin anyway.
To help spread the green word on what and when to recycle, Yesterday’s News is beginning the “Rethink Litter!” recycling campaign.
The company is asking you to pledge to recycle two paper products a week for twelve weeks.
Recyclable paper products include newspapers, magazines, junk mail, phone books, and scrap paper, among others. For every pledge received, the cat litter brand will make a $1 donation (up to $5,000) to Keep America Beautiful, which is an organization focused on litter prevention, waste reduction, and recycling.
Not only is Yesterday’s News headlining this fantastic campaign, but they’re also making a $10,000 donation to Keep America Beautiful. Also, those out there that are taking the pledge will be entered into a weekly sweepstakes to receive $50 gift cards for Giftback.com.
Pledges can be made at facebook.com/yesterdaysnews.
